Is there any difference in confort and riding position between the SE seat and the stock B seat?

I am almost positive the SE seat was Gel-Filled 99 percent sure. It is the most comftable Vrod seat I have ever sat on (granted haven't had a Sundowner yet)

The original SE seat did not have gel. I had mine apart and there is only foam with a thin foam pad on top.

Is there any difference in riding position with the sundowner vs. the SE seat?

The sundowner seems to sit you up a little straighter.

I don't know about the gel part of the 05' SE seat,but in my opinion its the most comfortable. Previous to buying the present SE I have now,I had an 02' and tried pretty much every seat out there looking for some comfort(tallboy,sundowner,several other stock model versions). I finally settled with the 05' SE seat cause it was the only one that was halfway comfortable after riding 100mls. Hence why I'm looking for one for the 05' SE I just bought and presently have the tallboy for sale. Thanks----Ken

The SE seat seems to be a little wider than most stockers, is that so? Question: is there any difference in width between the pillions? I'm looking for a narrower one for a 180 fender...

From what I've seen and remember Fabster the rear of the 05' SE seat is of the slim design vs. the wider touring pillions.

If I remember right the was a skinny & a touring pilion for the 05 se seat. I have the skinny rear and its similar to a stock seat.
Indeed it's narrower than the touring pillions, but I got a 03 stock seat and after mocking it over the fender I'm under the impression the pillion is wider than the CVO, I'll have to check and compare both...
