    I have a 2007 1100 silverado. Recently I added Vance & Hines Pipes and I had the carb rejetted. It sounds and runs great.. The stock seat is comfortable for the short haul, but when i take a ride longer than four hours my back starts hurting. I am thinking about replacing the stock seat with either a mustang or corbin seats. Any advise, thanks and be safe.

    You may want to search old threads. There has been a lot of discussion regarding the subject of seats! If you have any specific questions regarding a certain seat, be sure to post away. I'm sure you can find a owner, and opinion for about any make! Good luck.

    You may want to try a drivers back rest, I added one to my stock seat and it has made a world of difference for my back. I also through on sheep skin seat cover for all day riding it works for me.

    I agree wear BEAR
    I bought the ultimate seat for my 1100 and it was better but then i added the drivers backrest and it was perfect.
    If i was to do it again i would get the backrest first before i spent the huge amount of money that the aftermarket seats sell for.

    I have the Mustang w/backrest on my Strat, and wouldn't be without it. My suggestion is to find someone with a similar bike and aftermarket seat and see if they will let you ride it. Those of us that have Mustang's, love them. Those that have Ultimates, or Corbins, love them. I suppose it is a matter of preference, and what fits your backside the best. The drivers backrest is a must.
