I went with Corbin young guns. Most rides are 4-6 hours, no wind screen. Many on the forum have recomended a backrest. I wanted something close to the 900 custom stock look with room for the occasional short passenger ride and able to add driver backrest.
The Corbin has been a good choice, hard at first but gets better with every ride. Had tried stock seat modification and air hawk first, better than stock but nothing like the Corbin.
I was also considering the 2 seats you are looking at but after looking at a lot of reviews decided on the Corbin for my riding needs. I am sure just about any quality after market seat will be an improvement over the stock seat.
I had the Mustang seat on my 900. It sits a bit taller, but is a world of difference over the stock seat. It's a wonderful seat and makes the butt time a lot better. I went from hurting after an hour to riding all day without any pain.
I purchased a new Baron's rear pulley off of eBay, and now I'm wondering if it could be considered damaged or even counterfeit. I purchased the "unfinished" pulley (not painted), but thought that just meant polished aluminum. After putting a bit of elbow grease, I have it polished up nicely...

I own a Vulcan 900 / 2009 (32,000 km). Until December the bike was in South Africa and the previous owner was using Castrol Actevo semi synthetic 10W40. I'm in Tanzania, I can't find this type of oil here. My question is, I want to change the type of oil and I don't know if is better to...
After some good discussion in another thread, doing the ZX14 shock mod sounded interesting. We have a 1200 mile trip planned this summer and a way to absorb some of the bumps in the road sounds pretty appealing. I bought this shock from a parts recycler on eBay. I plan on doing a total rebuild...
I know this a simple question.
I want to do a synthetic oil change, 2012 v900 has 3k now, last oil was done 4 years at 1k miles.
Autozone said they have mobil one MA (approved) 12$ a qt.
