|I fitted a Mustang seat to one of my bikes last week. The seat took between 2, and 3 weeks to arrive, well wrapped and packed, and complete with installation instructions, for a 2012-2017 Victory Vision!|
I had no issue with the wiring, though it is different to the stock seat.
Stock, the wiring from the passenger to rider area runs internally, with a single short cable ending in the connection plug to the bike wiring loom. To me, the With the mustang, the two sides are run separately, and externally, through individual plug/socket connections, with longer cables, both going into the connection plug to the bike wiring loom.
Despite having the wrong instructions, I am familiar with the Goldwing seat removal and fitting, as it is part of just about every accessory installation. So I had the seat assembled, fitted, and set-up in about 10 minutes.
Comfort-wise, just by sitting on it, is comparable to the stock seat, which is very comfortable by motorcycle standards, but is a slightly different position, making you feel more "in", rather than "on" the bike, and requiring a lower windshield height.
The mustang is wider than the stock seat, making it more awkward for my 5'9" frame to flatfoot on both sides, but not uncomfortably so. The bike can still be handled fairly easily.I
Heating works well, but takes a bit longer than stock to fully beat up.
Needless to say, I was eager to try it out. Now with the stock seat, I would begin feeling less than ideally comfortable by two hours, when I would be looking for an excuse to stop, and I could endure three, before needing to.
While I didn't have time for a three hour run, I did get a run of almost two hours in, and am delighted to report that when I got off to get gas, back near home, I felt just as I did when I got on, and I'm fairly certain I could ride from full to empty, on this.
These are first impressions. I do have a near 1,400 miles run coming up next week, and I'll update once I've done that.
