I opted for a Bill Mayer Saddle, and haven't been pleased with the comfort (lack of).mtrider said:I would like to have some input on seating upgrades for the RT . Clearly the RT lacks some seating comfort.
Depends on the seat and I bet none of them just plug into the existing wiring out of the box. Even so, custom seats retain the stock heating element, so it works as it did before. If you look at the list price on a Sargent, heated driver and passenger, I think the list price is $869. Price a seat from either Mayer or Russell and I bet it's no more and could be less. Rick's Seats tend to be more. I don't know about Kontour, but I doubt it's much different. The downside is that you have to wait for a custom seat if you supply them with the original. Another thing is, I am not sure if off the shelf seats work in both the high and low position. I've seen Corbin's and they seem to sit lower than stock high position. That wouldn't interest me.todka32 said:The biggest question I have is, does the heat controls still work with an aftermarket seat?
Like I said, a lower seat doesn't work for me no matter how good it is. I can flat foot on the center stand with boots on.itspossible said:I love my Corbin but my wife likes her OEM, everyone's butt is different. Its a bit wider than OEM so may be a challenge the the short legged folks, I just slide to one side to flat foot with one leg, otherwise I'm on the balls of my feet.
This is my second bike with a Corbin and my butt is happy.
