If i did this right then a link should appear and it will show that i have replaced the stock seat with a mustang much better i also replaced the stock foot pegs with floorboards i believe 11 has them also and they fit perfectly i did have to adjust the shifter i needed a little more toe room to shift. You will also see pictures of my side plate mount project and cutting of the plastics on the back i also took pictures of the saw i used to cut the plastic then cleaned it up with a dremel. the metal behind the plastic had to be cut so i put a scratch in it to guide me then used the dremel to cut and cleaned it up with a grinder and then painted it black for rust protection. I removed the fender and flipped it over i snipped the wires for the lights yes i said LIGHTS there are to small bulbs that make up the light for the plate i cut the zip ties that hold it in place you will see a connector that goes from 4 wires to 2 so what i did was taped up 2 of the wires rerouted the wires and attached extra lengths of wire using posi taps put a wire loom over the wires and zip tied the wire piggyback to the wires that were already there. After that it was just a matter of attaching the plate and lights i temporarily hooked the lights up just to make sure it all worked. I also will be putting led turn signals in the front that i got from chrome glow i already know that i have to trim it to make it fit because when you get it its the same size as the housing so you have to trim it. I bought two sets of these because i believed they took the same light in the back but they are different so i have a set for sale for the same price i paid but i will ship free. I have other mods i will be doing but i will post them when i get to them.

Everything looks great! I've really been thinking about doing some floorboards on mine too, along with some 3"-4" forward control extensions..... just been waiting on Pacific Coast Star to get together a nice complete extension package. As far as the floorboards, those are the Vstar 1100 boards right? Does everything bolt right up as-is? Can I just get the boards alone or do we require the mount as well?

Nope everything comes with the boards including the bolts and nuts and believe me just remove the pegs slide the board on drop the bolt through and screw on the nut. Yes these are the 1100 star boards.

How are you liking the mustang seat?
Well i have to be honest here at first i thought "this is not what i wanted" but after a few rides i really like it. I would say that the seat is kind of firm but yet still comfortable because of the way it cradles your buttocks and lower back by your tailbone. now i say firm but yet still softer than stock. Now with that said i'am 5'6" and about 200lbs i mention this because somebody taller or shorter than me may feel different about it. when i purchased this seat i thought about a backrest but now i'am glad i did not because that may have kept my lower back from getting that support. on a scale from 1-10 i give it a 9.
