Hey, Blipco. This info could help someone else along the way. Agree about the seat, I redid my seat last week. Riding on/off for 9 hours last made me to find something more comfortable. wearing my kidney belt.

They were the Rider beads. Not Japanese love beads
Tried it for a while, sold the set then. Just not for a boney rear. The odd thing is they worked great in the truck. guess the a$$ pressure points are not so direct in a regular seat as like on the bike,

I dont know why people make such a big deal about seats.

i used to ride bicycles and the best seat was a hard ass brooks saddle! it would break your ass until it stopped complaining!

For me the stock seat is so much better than alot of bikes i have owned.

stop yer obcessin and just ride the darn bike

Modifying the exisitng seat.

HAveing been down the road with stock seat vs corbin or mustang on other bikes I decided to first modify my stock seat. All I used was a memory foam pillow and an electric carving knife. If you cut the dish out of the stock seat and then place the memory foam pillow into position, glue with upholstry adhiesive then mould to suit. To do fine contoring on the seat after the adhiesive dried I wused a belt sander. It works pretty well and with an investment of $50 and a couple hours of time your all set. You will have b=plenty of foam with a memry foam pillow to do it twice if you happen to mess up.
Hope this is helpful. I haven't done it yet on my V but it was successful on my crusier, very comfy on long rides!
