    Hi. I am buying an 08 Aero and it has a Mustang Wide Vintage seat on it. Its way too big for me, I have too much space in between my back and the rear of the seat. Any suggestions on a shorter seat that sits closer to the bars. I cant use this seat I'll slide all over the place! Anyone use a Saddlemen Saddlehyde Explorer Special Seat (last pic)? I will be selling this Mustang seat/passenger and backrest too!

    • I don't know about seats other than the stock seat. I am interested in buying your seat

    • i dont have it yet. As soon as I figure out what seat to buy I can sell it to you! I dont even know how the stock seat would fit. Do you know if there is a difference between the stock seat and the Mustang seat?

    • Stock seat is more narrow

    • i need to know if its shorter in length from where it meets the tank to the rear of the seat. The Mustang is 21 inches

    • I think the stock seat sits you up higher and pushes you forward compared to most aftermarket seats. This is because most people want to sit back and down further. I just butchered and reupholstered my seat to get it to sit back and down in the bike more.

      I bet somebody would be willing to send you their stock seat to try it out and hope that you just trade them straight across for the Mustang if it worked out for you.

      Without having foam added and having the seat reupholstered, you would probably struggle to find a seat that sits taller than the stock one.

    • I would do that. But would someone just send me a stock seat to try out?

    • Lot of money once u get into reupholstering too

    • I bet someone would. I would if I had one.

      Where do you live?

    • MA

    • I would definitely trade my seat for any seat that would fit

    • Have you thought about adding a gel pad? I believe places that deal strictly with motorcycle seats can add foam or even gel padding. Since you're adding more to the seat you'd have to get it re-covered as well. Look for a local place... maybe visit/call a nearby bike shop for upholstery shop recommendations.

      While browsing moto newsletters I hooked up to this link located in my area... perhaps something like it is available in your neck of the woods....

    • Maybe you could try making a new post asking if anyone in or near Massachusetts (or further if they are willing to ship it) is willing to let you try their stock seat with the possibility of them getting a free upgrade if it works for you.

      Another option would be to contact local dealers and see if the have a similar year of the Aero, then go sit on it and see how it feels.

    • MY 08 AERO SEAM ON FRONT TO SEAM OF SAME MATERIALPCC AT BACK 17.5 INCHES AND BACK PAD THAT IS STOCK WILL NOT FIT RIGHT WITH MUSTANG SEAT HOPE THAT HELPS MUSTANG IS ONE OF THE BEST SEATS FOR THE SHADOW 17.5 TO SEAM NOT TO BACK OF SEAT BUT STOCK IS CLOSER TO GROUND

    • I'm interested in your seat when you decide to sell !

    • I can recommend the Corbin one. Had mine for awhile now. Take a look at that one :)

    • Stinger?? I'm really liking the look of it! I heard it's a hard seat tho?

    • You might have to change your name to Shadow Queen...... Just sayin..... Lol

    • Builds stamina...lol :)

    • If you have a good condition stock seat she would probably trade if it fit her better.
