Mustang Day Tripper seat for 2010 Voyager 1700

I am interested in buying this seat as I want to sit further away from the bars than the stock seat. The stock seat has the large rising pad at the rear which pushes me forward and I find that uncomfortable.

Does anyone have one and what do you think ?

Agreed - the Corbin will push you back a full 2 inches - so much that I had to install Risers!

The Corbin does sit you back and down about 3/4 inch. I love mine afte is got broken in (600 miles) some people dont like them. Factory seat hurts after 90 minute ride.

I'd say the lowering of 3/4" is debatable - I didn't notice any difference on my VV. If I was generous, I'd say maybe a 1/4". But that's just my experience.

I dont know how far away from the bars it put you, but at 6'2 with a 34" inseam do you think I will need spacers still?
