Mustang Wide Vintage Seat on custom SE. pics pg 2

As soon as it stops raining I'll be throwing it on.

I read that some of you had issues with fitment? Any advice before I start to put it on?

I got a great deal off ebay. $325 shipped

Just installed one on my wife's Classic LT yesterday. I had "NO" problems at all with the installation but make sure the front tab gets under the tank. There are spacers required for a custom installation, so make sure you received them.

Should mount up fine. Only change I made on mine was I put two pieces of clear fuel line on each side of the tab that goes into the front piece by the gas tank. Held them in place with a nylon tie. Makes for a nice tight fit.

I haven't opened the box yet. I'm hoping I didn't have to request the spacers because the website said the seat would fit an 09 custom se.

It came in a mustang box. Do the spacers come with it?

They should be included along with the longer bolts and attached to the bottom of the seat.

I bought a mustang seat used, and ended up using some bolts from the stock seat if I remember correctly. No issues regardless.

2007 Ninja 650R traded in and missed
2009 Vulcan 900 Classic current Kawi
900cc=55 cubic inches

Is there a Gadget page for us 900 owners???


Vulcan 900 "oily air filter" fix

Get 3-4 feet of tranny line from parts store that's the same ID as the stock vent line. Attach to jug, route hose up to bottom of fuel tank around wires and back down to airbox, cut off excess (leave a little slack so wires are NOT under tension) and attach to airbox. Reinstall everything.

I think you have a classic. They were saying the custom needs spacers.

Mustang seat for 900

Yesterday I installed a Mustang seat on my 900LT. Although Mustang advertises that the needed hardware for either the Classic or the Custom come with the seat, I found only the bolts for the Classic (installed in the seat) came with mine. I bought the studded one-piece seat (#76126) from gm-cycles in MD, on eBay for $369 including shipping.

There were no installation instructions in the box. However, the Mustang web site has illustrated installation instructions, found here:

http://www.mustangseats.com/pdfs/mou...0_06_09_1p.pdf

For me, the Mustang seat is a big improvement in comfort over the stock seat. My wife also likes the pillion pad for its larger size than stock and more comfortable feel.
