    So I have noticed that alot you guys are impressed with Mustang seats. I also want to upgrade to a better than stock seat and I am in the market for a stilleto style seat for my 07 Custom. I ride 95% of the time solo, but want something for my woman to sit on when she wants to come for a ride. We don't ride together for long trips, but I want her to be comfortable if we take off for an hour or so. I do want it to be comfortable for me as well as I do plan on making some long distance trips. Do you guys think the stilleto style is okay for this? I am really partial to its looks and the Mustang Profiler just doesn't do it for me. Is the Yamaha Stilleto a good replacement or is the Corbin better?? I currently ride with the stock seat and passenger pillion removed for the solo look, and throw on the passenger seat (takes two minutes) when I take her for a drive, so I am also open to any other senarios similar to this, if it ain't to much of a pain. Any opinions or real life experiences would be greatly appreciated before I go spending my hard earned cash and end up being disappointed. Thanks guys and safe riding!
    i dont know about any other type or kind of seats. but i seen a thread in here some where about diff. seats thou.

    putting them on was easy....remove your bracket from stock rider seat and bolt it onto the mustang seat. then bolt them on to your bike took me about 20 mins.
    I must be doing something wrong.

    I have spent about 3 HOURS..... yes, HOURS, trying to mount this seat to the bike. My hang up is remounting the bracket to the fender (two screws). It's the part that the passanger seat clips into and the driver bracket all connects to the fender. Those damn screws will NOT thread. Even if I just thread the screws (no hardware) just to make sure they aren't cross threaed, it's a real pain. With most screws, you at least get it close, wiggle it around a bit and it will catch and start to thread. Not so with these. I tried for an hour (3 different times) and still no go. I feel like a complete fool because I can't thread in two screws. I hope it's something stupid (like user error) and when I try again tomorrow, it'll catch first try.

    yeah them two screws are what took up most of the 20 mins. i spend putting my seats on. they should screw in pretty easy by them self minus the hardware. only thing i can think of is the hole and/or bolts are crossed threaded or using the wrong bolts maybe?? my bolts was the button head type that you use a allin wrench on. u might use a thread chaser on the holes.
