    Hey any of you guys replaced your stock seat with one of Yamaha's solo seats? They have one with studs and one that is plain. I have also read that they are made by Corbin. If so how do they feel and ride? Do they set you lower, foward, or back some?

    I almost went with the solo, but I want a lower, thinner seat. I think the solo might actually be a bit thicker and/or wider than the stock seat.

    I have the Yamaha/Corbin "Comfort Cruise" solo seat on my Classic. The seat is narrower and sits lower that the standard factory seat. The seat will sit you "down in" the bike and back a bit. The padding is a lot firmer, and thinner than the factory seat.
    Surprisingly, it is much more comfortable on long rides than the stock seat. Keep an eye out for one on ebay. I bought mine brand new for $115.00. IMHO, it is a lot better than the stocker!

    I have a PCS potato chip and i love it. Sits you lower and is way more comfortable than the stock seat.

    I have the patato also and agree with Riwed, it is a fantastic seat. Looks great and is real confortable, and sets you quite abit lower. It also follows the frame, where the stock seat sits outside the frame.

    I am seriously looking at an Ultimate Seat. These are made here in Florida, and I met the owner at Daytona on Saturday. They have real demos in their showroom (at Destination Daytona) and their solos seat for the Custom is nice-looking. I think the cost is around $300, but I am not sure I like the stitching. I am going to go back this weekend and talk to them about making me a seat without the "standard" V-Star logo (which they include at "no cost" for V-Star seats). The nice thing about Ultimate is that they give you a 14-day trial period. If you decide you don't like your seat, they will give you a full refund - and no hassles.

    Let me know how that seat feels. I'm also considering an Ultimate seat. I went to Chicago bike show to look at them, but they were not present there [as a matter of fact the Mustang and Corbin were not there either]. I thought they were made in Canada, but they probably set another shop in Daytona . I think they still make them to order, so you should not have a problem ordering it without the logo stitching.

    I should have qualified my statement that the Ulitmate seats were made in Florida. I know that is where the shop is, and the guy (who said he was the owner) told me that they would build it right here (at Daytona) while I waited, but I didn't actually see them building seats on the premesis. I only visited their tent, and I didn't make it over to their shop.

    I do know that they had a Harley sitting there with one of their seats installed. I sat on it and it was very comfortable and supportive for the five minutes I sat there. I just thought it was cool that they will let you try it for two weeks.

    I will let you all know what I find out.
