Comfortable, good value
Overall the seat is a big improvement over stock, much more comfortable over a long ride. Had to do some customizing to the front slots to make it fit. Once it was on it fit tight. The downside is that it's a little slippery if you want to hang off, which I don't do often, and it's twice as heavy as the stock seat. But the comfort makes it worthwhile when you're touring. The passenger seat is a huge improvement if you ride two up.

A shopper asked:In terms of comfort, is the Explorer superior to the Stealth? The material of the Explorer appears slippery. Is that the case? Is is flat or do you lean forward as on the stock seat? Does it fit well on the bike or does it require adjustments? thanksSep 12, 2014
Ronnie D:I can't answer the question about the Stealth. The material on the Explorer is not slippery and it is relatively flat. It does not lean forward like the stock seat. It fits very well. You do have to transfer some brackets from the old seat to the new one. I find it much more comfortable than the stock seat on a long ride.Sep 17, 2014
John K:Didn't try the Steath. Same as the stock seat regarding the feel of the vinyl. The seat takes the forward lean out, but I have bar risers and Phils wedges installed. No adjustments required, just transfer the lock mechanismSep 18, 2014
walter r asked:I have read the Saddlemen seats do not include the metal hooks the the saddle needs to secure and lock down on the C14. I have a custom seat built on my stock pan and not satisfied with it. I would consider the RS but would like to sell the other seat to recoup some money. The is also a problem that the seat hard wear is not available as an OEM part from Kawasaki. Are the hooks included?Oct 4, 2013
steve l:No they are not and the seat slopes forward is slippery and has minimal padding so you slid around and forward into the tank all the time pushing on the handle bars to stay back on the seat. I tried to return it but was told no because I put it on the bike to try out it was now used and I would lose about 30% to return it! I wrote revzilla and Saddleman about this Rev is the only one that responded. I am taking my new seat in this winter to get it reworked so I can use it. DON"T BUY ONE ! ! !Oct 8, 2013
Dennis C:I have a Yamaha v-star and the seat used my existing front hook by the tank tabs are molded into seat and the rear screw hole on rear fender was used. I had to remove hardware for front of oe rear seat metal bracket for rear of seat was on saddlemen when it arrived very easy installation. You will be very satisfied. I amOct 9, 2013
