Im new to the R...just picked one up yesterday actually. I found a deal on a VRSCD Night rod seat and was curious if it will direct fit on my R. Everything looks the same except the seat is lower (which will help my short legs) . Any help is greatly appreciated.

never seen one fit yet. Rear fender, frame, forks, gauge pod,.... different parts. Ah the fun of owning an R :D :moped:

If you want a lower seat I have a Corbin for sale. PM me

Nope, won't fit. Only Streetrod seats fit Streetrod. The other Vrod seat don't even come close and can't be modified. Take a look at the Corbin Close seat. http://www.corbin.com/harley/vrsca/streetrod_cs.shtml

It's costly but believe me, your ass will thank you. I have a 33" inseam and bought the regular Hollywood and cannot even describe how much better the ride is than the stock POS seat

I went to Holister and had Mike give me a personal tour of the Corbin facility. He had lunch with us while I waited only 3 hours for them to custom make a new seat for my "R". Money well spent. $600.

06'. Look at the frame rails under the seat and then run your eyes over to the engine. You will see the location of the rail on the frame is a little higher, this effects how the seat fits and other things too. Also allowed for a larger gas tank with the frame changes.

Bill Mayer and Rick Mayer ( not related either ) both make custom motorcycle seats on your seat base.

There is Rich's Custom Seats;

And then there is KonTour, who's seats really interest me;

More ideas to chew on. I could do a quick over nighter to either Mayer and have a seat made to my butt on the spot with an appointment.
