I bought my first bike a Yamaha Road Star about six months ago. I already have the itch to change it. I am considering exchanging the stock seat for a Mustang or an Ultimate. Anyone with experience or opinions would be appreaciated. I also ran across a place in Carolina that re-does your existing seat. I think the name was Mean City Seats. I called and he he seemed willing to help. Again any experience or what to watch out for would be appreciated.

Road Star seats

I have a 2000 road star and I change my seat to 2004 model. Wife hate the rear seat or Pillion. So I made it 6 inches wider myself. My mother had an sewing machine to sow leather with. She passed away in 1997. But I did a little work on the machine before she passed. It is done just like the Ultimate seats. I am going to take both seats off this winter and have a local upholstery shop put a little more foam padding in it.
I would go with the Ultimate seats. I have seen a few and they are plush. I might even go that way myself. If you can do without the seats a few weeks. I think they are done in Texas. I got a price quote from them a few months back. I think it was $60.00 for the rear seat but, I have already made it wider.
I have put a tour pak on hard bags, batwing fairing with radio, front riders seat backrest, rear crash bars off a 1986 Kawasaki Voyager and cruise control on my road star.
It had around $2000.00 in chrome on when I bought it.
Here are a few links to my bike pictures.
Good luck and ride safe. Andy

Andy,
What did you use for the support on the wider passenger seat foam. How is the "trunk" supported?
I may not have read your post right but I'm not sure what was in Texas.

Nice looking bike! Thanks for your reply.
Steve
