Seat that sits higher

It seems most aftermarket seats for the 2015 FLTRXS are either the same as stock in height or lower than stock. I actually would like a seat that is higher than stock and would sit me farther forward. Does anyone make these?

CVO Heated Hammock. Sits me up about an inch higher than the stock RGU seat.

Stock ultra seat will definitely move you up and forward compared to the special seat, and can be had relatively cheap. I've got one in my garage with zero miles on it as a matter of fact.

Sounds like a deal waiting to happen.
Many gents on this site have the same seat sitting in the garages that I'm sure they would dig to unload.
Good Luck.

I feel like my Mustang sits me up and forward a bit.

The two piece signature solo seat with backrest sits me forward and higher on my FLTRX. I am looking to replace it just for that reason. I would rather be farther back and down a little.


Rest in Peace Michael Wade
