Hi I'm new to the forum, I have had a 2016 street twin for just over a year. Has anyone else found the seat to be uncomfortable and if so has anyone tried the low comfort seat (part number A2304333) and found it more comfortable than the standard seat. Be grateful for any help thanks
I have a 2012 Bonneville it came with a seat that was almost flat and not to good looking. I found a sculpted seat off a 2011 that looks right for the bike but, they must have just cut down the foam because it is extremely uncomfortable after only an hour in the saddle. I think I may have to go back to the flat seat. So I agree you are not crazy. You may need to look into a new aftermarket seat like some of the guys had suggested. Good luck.

On my 2020 Street Twin after 1.5 to 2 hours my butt hurts. I bought an Airhawk seat the Airhawk small cruiser pad. I met a guy who had one on his T120 and loved it. I'm going to install it ttoday on my 2020 Street Twin and see how it feels. FYI, I got it on ebay for a steal $27 + tax.

Ok I've had the Airhawk seat on for 2 rides and its the best aftermarket item I've bought for the Street Twin. NO MORE SORE BUTT. The top fabric was a little slippery at first but after I let more air out it was fine. I have the original Airhawk not the Airhawk2 so I don't know if the top fabric is different on the Airhawk2.

My understanding is the 2022 I pick up Wednesday has a new improved stock seat.

Vector, I'm interested in what you think of that seat. I've never found a stock seat that was comfortable for me..

The 2022 seat is a new design.
