I have a 2008 Limited Edition, with studded seats. PM me with price, considering I will throw-in my stock seats into the bag.

instigator Are you still looking? I have a 3-piece Mustang from 2002 VL800 so it should work. Selling the bike and going to put the stock seat back on it. Lots of years and miles on the rider seat but almost none on the passenger seat. Make me an offer! BTW -- I am in Greater Cincinnati area.

oldenslow Everyone's opinion -- and butt -- is different, and what works for one won't do for another. The seats of both my Honda CBR300R and my '08 C50 needed improvement to make my rear happy -- the Honda more than the Suzuki. Looking around, I was aghast at seat prices, not because I thought they weren't worth it if they worked but that if they didn't work I'd be out a big chunk of change. As an alternative, I took a chance on a couple of knock-off Airhawk-style air cushions. Read any review and they will say you have to get the air level just right to get the full benefit, and this is absolutely true. But once I made a few rides and finally got that right -- oh, my! You cannot begin to appreciate how much they help until you experience it.


Here's the one I got for the Honda:

There's a US seller that I got the one for the Suzuki from, and I don't see his listing right now, but here it is:

The genuine Airhawks have a better warranty and are still cheap compared to custom seats, but these have been great so far.

Skrapiron The seat mount is completely different between the 2008 and 2011 model year bikes.

Seats from 2001-2008 will only fit those model years. Seats from 2009 and up will only fit those model years. There is no cross compatibility.

Yup. Drat. @gkalyanapu looks like your seat will be slightly different.
If it is the model 79620 then I will make it work if you can manage a $450 price. Not sure what mods I will be in for but I have to save our butts soon. Thanks in advance and hoping i can get your mustang back on the road.
