Yeah it did not upload right away . The seat is a corbin . And it is an improvement over stock . But my ass kinda big .i might have to tweak it a little . Im gonna take the wait and see approach . I do have a question. I havent had time to play with it much today and yes its a today purchase .about 1 this afternoon. Then back to work . It has what looks like factory fogs but they dont come on when you crank up the bike . What should i look for to be the problem

Congratulations on your purchase, Slim. There should be a push button for the lights. Honda likes them to be wired up so they only come on with the high beams (I wired mine to be available anytime), so you might want to try that as well.

As Fossil said, I do like my Wingsoft seat. It sets me back just a few inches, but it's enough to ease the knees. The only thing is when I did that I also needed risers for the bars to bring those back also. Now from a 500 mile easy day, a 800 mile day is easy.

It was a few years before I added highway pegs, but those do help on long trips.

The fog light switch is on the left panel, below the pocket, next to the hazard light switch. Pushed in it will light them when on low beams. High beam makes them turn off. At least that is standard for mine as installed by the dealer when I bought it.
