I just boaught an 06 Warrior and hate the seat. I'm looking for a solo seat w/ a backrest. Anyone know of a good product? Also, what's a good way to plug the Pillion seat holes after I remove it? Thanks to all who reply.
Shock, I recently bought an 05 and I hated the stock seat too. I just got my corbin/yammi stilletto seat from MSSS and I love it. It provides a deeper seat with the perfect back support...it's like a totally differnt bike!
As far as plugging the holes...goto Pepboys, Kragen, etc and buy 2 boxes of GM&Universal trim retainers (item #45814) made by Body-Tite! They fit perfectly.
Enjoy the RSW...it's a great bike and with the right seat for you...it's even sweeter[8D]
I use a Corbin Stinger and it is great for long journeys and looks the b0110ck$. The shape is as good as having a back rest and it covers the holes where the pillion seat mounts. There. All your problems fixed with a single solution. [/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
corbin solo seat can be fitted with a backrest, but I hardly ever use mine. With the stock handlebars, I have to lock the throttle (and let go of the bars) to lean back far enough to touch the backrest.
Just did a 4k ride with the mustang with a backrest. It's a very good setup. The backrest is adjustable for height and the pad swivels to your lean angle on it. With the carlini bars, I could get in a multitude of positions including an almost laying down position. The seat didn't fgeel too good at first but got more comfortable every day. I guess I had to break it in, it's better than anything on the market in my book.
Washingtonwarrior, you need to update your gallery. Not that there's anything wrong with the pics in it! I just don't recall seeing a Mustang seat in there. LOL.
I didn't figure anybody noticed my bike anyway.
I got the mustang on one day before I took off on vacation. Probably why it wasn't all that comfortable the first couple of days. I actually think it will get better and better and better.
