So has anyone put on one of the other seats offered by star? I am thinking of the confit tour as my lower back aches after some time on the bike.

This has been already posted a few times before but here goes again. I got the Comfort cruise dual seat and has more padding but stiffer leather and padding. So now I have a solo Comfort cruise for myself and customized a Stratoliner passenger seat to fit for my wife. I like the contour of the solo seat because it comes up and supports my tailbone better than stock seat.

I would never do it again. Took me 8 hours(2 of which was figuring how to do it). I had to cut 2'1/2" inches in length out of seat and reattach cover then, Make up bracket for front of seat holddown. Real pain, but worth it in the end.

Looks good. where did you get the black caps for the bolts on the back rest?
Gotem on Ebay. There are many sets available in black or chrome.

I tried the Star Solo seat - good support, but it pushed me forward about an inch - I didn't like it, so I went back to the stock. (Cut off the passenger & made a Solo out of it - I'll post pics this weekend). For 2-up, I got a Mustang Daytripper - NICE. As comfy as the Star Solo, but sets you back in the saddle like the stock seat. I suppose when LM gets their seatpans going, I'll pick one of those up and get it covered, prolly by Danny Grey (thx Deja!).

NYJOL - I've been thinking about the 2 seats that you've mentioned. The one inch push
forward may help some of us more vertically challenged riders. How tall are you?
