I want a better passenger seat for my girl than the little 5 inch wide, 2.5 inch thick pad...without getting a whole new solo seat for mucho dinero. I have looked high and low and I can't seem to find anything decent that will work with my stock sporty seat (1988 883cc). Mustang has some nice ones, but everything I see that I like only fits with that company's solo seat. Suggestions?

Preferences:
At least 8 inches wide, 10 inches wide would be better but I haven't found any. 12 seems like it would look like a couch on the back.

Works with stock solo seat.

Definitely not suction cup attachment.

Thanks in advance.

Best bet would just get a second 2 up seat of eBay, Craigslist, FB market place etc... I know some aren’t pretty, but happy passenger happy life!

They are easy enough to change up.


For instance...

Do her right! Just find a complete one piece seat that' comfy for her, for the times you ride 2 up. Keep the solo seat you like for the solo rides. It takes a whole minute to change them out.. just my 2 cents. Comfort out weighs looks! just sayin'

Fair points, thank you both. Doing it on a budget was one of the biggest points right now. Thanks for the link...I had come up dry on ebay several times in the last few weeks.

In my neck of the woods, there's a number of used Harley dealerships. They also sell used parts. Like windshields, seats, backrest. They have a good idea of what fits what. Many will let you test fit the part on your bike, before laying out the cash. Call around, it can't hurt.
