Please share where you found it for that amount. I found the same (rider only seat), on e-bay for $153.00 including shipping.has anyone tried Kawasaki pillow top gel seat > is it better than stock and worth the money, I found one for 130 thanks
I had to do some googling and apparently the brackets are different and the seats don't line up; they don't work. Evidently some have tried (i.e., bought Nomad/Voyager seats) and were not able to make them work. Wish I had one to play around with. It's a similar deal with the 900 Classic/LT and Custom, but a few washers will get a Classic/LT seat onto a Custom. But it sounds like there are enough differences the two are incompatible.Please share where you found it for that amount. I found the same (rider only seat), on e-bay for $153.00 including shipping.
Does anyone know if they are compatible with the Vaquero (are Vaq/Voyager seats intercompatible?) and does it work with the grasshopper backrest?
A check of Part numbers on the Mustang seat web site shows the Voyager & Vaquero to be different.
Thanks for the honest feedback. Since my bike gets road year round and I have no garage, the water collecting may be an issue. Raising me up higher would also be an issue for me at 5'8" I rarely am flat footed as is with 1" cut down on stock seat.I have both front and rear Voyager/Nomad pillow top gel seats and the Vaquero gel seat. The Voyager seats both sit about an inch higher than stock, mainly because they are much firmer. The pillow top seats have buttons to hold the cover in place, creating depressions in the top of the seat that hold water, and eventually rots the cover. After 3 years and 150k miles both my covers were toast, cracked and torn at the buttons, so I removed the covers from my stock seats and used them to re-cover the pillow tops and that works great, over 200k and the cushions are still firm. Whoever dreamed up the idea to make a motorcycle seat with buttons and depressions that hold water should be shot!
I use the Vaquero seat for solo riding, it fits directly onto the Voyager by simply adding a couple spacers under the latch plate. It sits a bit lower and further back to give me more legroom.
To fit the Voyager dual seats to a Vaquero you will need the catch to bolt to the rear fender, the latch plate for the rear seat, and the bracket and grommets for the front seat. The rear seat will sit about 1/8 inch higher due to the design of the latch mechanism.
