Best aftermarket Passenger seat?

Has anyone found a good non-oem passenger seat for the Vulcan S? I just started riding and got a used one I would like to add a seat to, to someday have someone ride with me.

I looked into it. The factory seat is $108 on partzilla. I couldn't find an aftermarket inexpensive enough to roll the dice on.

I know that doesn't answer your question, but I hope it helps.

Everyone raves about Corbin seats, and there's a UK company, Core, that's kind of a newcomer that I've heard good things about. Although you're looking at apx $500 on the low end for either.

I don't think that Corbin makes a passenger seat.

Remember that it's not just the seat you need, you also have to swap out the steel tubing back there and replace with the set that includes pegs.

I got the ButtyBuddy for my girl and she loves it.



I basically either replaces the seat entirely (suction cups and a tie down) or goes ontop of the seat ( clamps and tie down)

I bought the clamps one and to be honest, I wish I went with the suction cups instead.

Girlfriend is very happy with the purchase, says its super comfy and we go on longer rides now.

Here is a link :
