  • Do any of HD seats fit our R*?

    Hey guys my first post I'm new to R* scene. I was wondering if anyone has put a Road King seat on a road Star? Pics and info if you have or know it can be done would be great too.

    Different mounting system on HD I believe

    ED Seats
    Mustang
    And ultimate make seats for our bikes. I have a mustang wide touring and love it.

      From California. What Gillis said. The R*s have a proprietary latching system and I suspect the contour is different as well. There are quite a few seats available for the R*, what are you hoping to accomplish? More comfort of different style?

        No. None. Zero. Zip. Zilch. No HD seats will fit without extensive modification.

          Representing Scorpion Gulch, Arizona. Where are you? You can make any seat fit any bike if you throw enough time / money at it. People on here make H-D wheels fit, H-D saddlebags, H-D fairings, H-D fenders, H-D handlebars...why not a seat? You could be the first. You could be a trendsetter. You could be someone special. You could be a God.

            I’ve often wondered about a soft tail seat fitting the contour?

              Ok....go buy a used HD seat stock for $150 of FB or CL that someone is selling because they got a good comfy seat. Fiddle fuck with it and make brackets and have it look weird and nit fit right....and end up with an uncomfortable stock seat that someone sold because it sucks....

              OR

              buy any number of like new used quality aftermarket seats that are actually made specifically for the motorcycle you have for $150-250. Check FB, CL here....etc.

              why reinvent the wheel and use a stick seat that's isn't much more comfortable than your atock seat and the. Have to modify it?????????

                This is actually a good question that I’ve never heard discussed around here. I’ve sat on lots of custom Roadstar seats. Had the usual ones on mine that I spent several days, all day in. I’ve sat on a few Harley seats that were more comfortable than any of them. Don’t know if they were aftermarket/upgraded Harley seats or not. I just know it was like sitting on a bunch of those pillows that Victoria’s Secret angels are always having pillow fights with...

                    Now that I'd like to see a pic of...a Honda with BMW fenders?

                  Late '80's through 1999 Softail seat has a good chance I think the angle of the dangle is about right. Plastic base means you could make a front seat bracket and pop-rivit it on. The back might take a bit more innovation. I see Softail seats on C/L for $50 all the time.

                    Actually the rear might be easier. My Mustang seat bolts to the fender with a strap that mounts to the underside back of the seat. My bike didn't come with the factory mount point on the fender.

                  from Athens, Georgia !
                  If you put a H/D seat on your R/S, that will slow it down at least 10 mph.
                  I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !

                      Harley seats don't contain oil, so you don't have to worry about leaks.
