4 Tips For Buying a Harley Davidson Seat

Aug 10, 2008
Are you looking to upgrade the seat on your Harley Davidson? If the stock Harley Seat is giving you a pain in the butt, literally then we've got some tips to make buying a Harley Seat that will fit you like a glove much easier. We've been eating and sleeping Harley Davidson motorcycles for a number of years so we've learned a thing or two about seats that make your butt feel good.

Follow along with these tips and let's see if we can't find you the perfect Harley Seat for your motorcycle and SAVE you money doing it.

Tip 1:

As easy as it looks don't decide which Harley Seat to buy out of a magazine or a catalog. It's very difficult to truly get an idea what a seat will look like visually from a picture. A seat that looks great on a bagger might look terrible on your lowered softail and you're kind of stuck with it once you buy it. I would always recommend that you try to find a motorcycle with the seat already mounted on it so you can get the full visual effect. At the very least search for pictures of your model bike with that model of seat.

Tip 2:

Don't ask people's opinions on what a certain seat feels like to ride. Ride comfort is so subjective from rider to rider and everyone prefers something different. Some people like a firm ride while others prefer a plush ride and what is comfortable to one person may not be comfortable to you. When possible there is no substitute for being able to log some seat time in the saddle that you are thinking about. Even that can be misleading as many saddles get much more comfortable with a little break in time.

Tip 3:

It is always good practice to buy the best quality Harley Seat that you can afford to buy. A Harley seat is one of the make or break items that can either make your ride comfortable and enjoyable or a miserable, painful experience that you cannot wait for it to be over. Which scenario sounds like more fun to you? You can usually avoid issues by buying a brand name seat with a good reputation. A sure sign that a seat is popular and probably comfortable is if it is common. If you see it everywhere or it is made by one of the big brands then you will most likely be happy with your selection. I would suggest buying a seat from a company like Corbin, LePera or Mustang as all of these companies are established and proven in the Harley Davidson world. There are many more but these are some of the more recognizable brands that I have personal experience with and would recommend.

Tip 4:

Once you have finally narrowed your selection down to the specific model you are going to buy then go online and look for a deal. There isn't anything wrong with trying to save money and you can save as much as 30-40% buying on Ebay as you can buying at your local dealer. Your dealer might try to make it seem like he's giving you a good deal but make sure to compare to Ebay. Ebay is a buyers paradise for merchandise and a little bit of research can save you a ton of money. Installing most Harley Seats is a piece of cake so I would plan on doing that yourself.

I could literally go on and on and on but I think you get the idea. It's time to hit the road and find the best Harley Seat for your motorcycle and your own personal taste.
