Gel Seat Ride Test

JakeVN900
After you had a chance to put on some miles it would be great to hear your comparison to the stock seat regarding comfort. The Mustang Seat are pricey. It would be nice to go with the gel seat if it was just as good if not better.

Very nice,

You'll like that seat. I have the same seat on my classic and its great on long rides. No numb fanny with that baby. Cogratulations on riding comfortably. Enjoy.

I've got about 3000 mi since my gel seat upgrade.
Used to ride about 45 mins before the pain started, now a couple of hours or more is no problem.
Also got mine at Ron Ayers. Had it in about a week.

Nice! Do you find your sitting in the same position, or has it moved you either back or forward? Im stretching for the handle bars now and Im planning on getting some riser to help with that but if the seat moves you forward then I would rather get the seat. :D

I'll have to comment on that in a few weeks, I have only sat on it so far. It feels like I won't feel the need to slump anymore. Like it is going to correct my posture. KS_Greg may have a few comments though.

I looked at the Ron Greene site on ebay, he sells it pretty cheap, but the shipping fee is astronomical...over $47. With that kind of shipping fee, they just put the seat about $15 cheaper than the kawasaki.com website is asking.

OUCH!!!

I'm lucky that my dealer will match internet prices and they only charge me $3 shipping if it's a Kawasaki part.

They just called and my wifes Studded Gel seat is in for her 900 LT. I can't wait to see if the Gel seat and Risers make her 900 LT much more comfortable for her on longer rides.

I have one on my V2K and like it so far, but I haven't been on a long enough ride to give a fair review yet.

Shipping to my zip code is only $14.60. I wonder why it is so bad for you??

Looks kinda like my Mustang.....but I like the price (1/2 the price).
Don't get me wrong...I love the Mustang and can ride all day long...but that gel seat looks pretty good...esp for the price.
