Mustang seat question

So my stock seat seems to push me forward. Not comfortable at all. I'm thinking of getting this:

Mustang Vintage Style One-Piece Touring Seat for Kawasaki 2006-2011 Vulcan 900 Classic and 2007-2011 Custom Models - Indy superbikes through Amazon has them for $449 with free shipping.

I'm 6'3 and 220 pounds. Does anyone else run one of these who is about my size and likes it? Thanks!

I think any seat other than the stock seat will make your ride much more comfortable!!

I looked at this seat too, but I opted for the much cheaper saddlemen renegade solo. I really like it, but some days I wonder if another seat would improve my ride that much more.

This is the Mustang I've got on my Custom: http://www.mustangseats.com/Product/...an-900-Classic

It's a lot more comfortable, but it does push me up and forward about 1 1/2 - 2 inches. I'm 6'-0" 200lbs. But that's the Custom seat, if you're riding a Classic the position change may be different.

from what i read mustangs are great seats, but all of them with the exception of the daytripper change your riding position, moving it forward a little and up a little. something to think about being 6'3". Personally i sat on one that the dealership had on a used bike, my bottom was comfortable but the passenger portion of the seat poked me in the back. I don't know how that bike would have fit me without the seat (it was a yamaha 1100 i believe) but the seating position was forward more than i would have liked. it could have been the bike though.

My mustang Vintage seat moved me up about an inch. I'm 6' 1" and the position on the bike feels perfect.

The stock seat really is pretty bad. After about 20 minutes, it's making me numb. Even if the position changes, it would be worth not having a dead butt. I'll give it a try...

im about the same size as you in both weight and height. i have the mustang seat with the riders backrest. the seat is an improvement but i dont think it pushes you back all that much compared to stock. i went on a little 250 trip the other day. and the seat was super comfortable. didnt feel stress unlike the stock which i felt after 40-50 miles. the backrest helps a lot too
