Looking for a different seat
 
My wife and are in need of a bigger seat for my 750. Just seems crowded on he original seat. Can anyone recommend a good replacement seat maybe with a link? Thanks so much

Don't know your location, but this past week someone ... Shark88? .. posted a new-in-box Mustang seat that was on Craigslist in NJ, it's down in the Sell/Swap section maybe. $275 if I recall, worth it to me if I had the cash, that hump just kills me, need 6" shorter legs on me.

Do a search and you should find info about the .. Spencer? ... seat mods, a guy down in Florida that will modify your stock seat if you send it in. He's got a website, I looked it over last week too.

I don't think any company is selling a seat for our bike now. So it's either mods or picking up an aftermarket seat from an individual. Watch Ebay and the Sell/Swap section here too.

A much cheaper solution is the vn 900 seat mod. $100 a few modifications and you got yourself more butt room and added comfort for passenger.

I think Corbin still makes Vulcan 750 seats.

The real problem here is any of the replacement seats made for the bike do nothing as far as adding more real estate for two up riding.

Your best bet to give both of you more room is to adapt a biggger seat to fit. There's a few threads on using bigger seats from other bikes you should look at.

im in the same boat, id like more room for myself and was thinking of a 900 seat, but i want to retain my luggage rack i just got. any ideas

Something like this maybe? 900 seat with an 1100 Honda backrest. Still have the luggage rack on the back, just have to support it a little differently.

Have a 900 seat for sale in the classified section, and neither the mustang or the corbin will add passenger room, we just installed a mustang on my sons, no more room than before, Just like Chuck says, if you are hauling a passenger, she better be small or you will need to modify a 900 seat.

I respectfully disagree with that statement. The mustang seat I have actually adds to the passenger seat length and raises the front of the passenger seat so they don't feel like they are sliding forward all the time. It also provides the driver more lower back back support.

Granted it is only 2-3 inches extra for the passenger, but for smaller framed passengers, that might just be enough.

The one we stuck on my sons sure didnt, she better be 100 lbs or less lol, and the short backrest is idiotic to boot.

I just want a seat without the passenger seat on it. Anyone on here have something like that so I can see how it looks? Sorry to hijack lol
