Mustang R1200GS Seat

Posted By Stan Herman, Wednesday, January 28, 2015
 
Excellent for the Inseam Challenged

This is a high quality seat utilizing a steel seat pan, an ingenious adjustment method and it fits the bike exceptionally well. The Mustang seat hugs the tank contours and latches easily in place after installing the four bolt mount bracket. To install one removes four 8mm nuts, switches mount brackets and reinstall four nuts, it takes about 10 minutes. The seat looks custom made with excellent stitching. As a bonus an optional rider backrest is available.

This is an excellent seat for someone inseam challenged on a GS or GSA. It lowers the overall seating position by more than an inch from the factory seat. Different width, shape and where one measures make that a hard number to determine exactly. The foam is firm and well sculpted. The throat is also somewhat narrower allowing easier flat footing of the bike. I rode about 250 miles of paved Arkansas River canyons and paved mountain roads around Pikes Peak. I have a 32 inch inseam and the seat is simply too short for me even in the high position. I think it would best serve those with a 30 inch inseam or less. It moves the rider into a pocket both lower and closer to the tank. I think the Mustang is a very nicely crafted seat, but not for me.
