This seat has proven to be pretty comfortable so far, but I've only ridden it a couple hours at a time. After specifying, my weight (205lbs) and picking out the texture (black snake skin), the seat arrived in about 1.5 weeks. It wasn't a perfect fit, I had to shim up the front seat bracket with a couple washers to make it latch.

Seat latch

My Mustang seat is a little tricky to get latched also. If I get it in just the right position it latches easy, otherwise I struggle a little. Don't know if this might be the case with yours or not. With time as things seat together you may wind up removing those washers.

I hope that is the case. I kept stacking washers until it latched, getting things to fit right would be nice. I didn't think there would be that much variance between bikes with the brackets & such, but I guess there is...

Looking good

The seat really looks good. I wonder if the foam could be comming down on the side covers? I guess if after it latches there is no up down play in the latch it is OK.

The seat seems to be settling in a bit, now there is some play in the latching, so I could try to remove one set of washers. There's no foam on the sides.
