Great, absolutely great.
I just got this, first off it looks great on the bike and doesn't look bulky like the stock Iron seat. I like the fact that it made the ride lower too. The seat is comfortable and places your butt exactly where it needs to be. The stock one i had to shuffle to find a comfortable spot. I would highly recommend it.

Great compromise
No one has left a review of this seat yet, so I'l be the first. First thing, its basically a spiced up and cushier seat from the HD Forty Eight. The back section is lifted, so there's almost no butt slide, which is nice. The fit and finish are top notch for fake leather. The comfort is far superior to its HD stock counterpart. I've taken it on a few 4 hour rides and felt pretty ok considering how small the seat is. Did I mention that its a pretty lo-pro seat? Looks stellar for that raked-minimalist style. Its a little stiff at first, but it breaks in in week or so. Overall I'm bloody thrilled with the price/comfort/looks. Its NOT a touring seat and many of you wont want to take this for more then a couple hour ride, but you'l look bad-a on the ride. Note on fit; I have a 2006 Sportster Roadster. 04-06 sporties will have to take the ECM unit from underneath the seat and move it below the seat pan area. Its an easy mod and allows the seat to fit the bike. Took me 10 minutes to do with a couple zip ties.

What an improvement
I replaced the stock seat with the Bilt Well sporty 8 seat was a bit tight to fit the front tab but it does fit my '15 48 nicely looks great, my butt no longer slides around or burns after an hour of riding. Seat still looks and feels great after 1500 miles of use. The seat is a bit smaller than the stock one rear fender will show wear from oe unit minor detail from a guy who'd rather ride it than wash it you won't be disappointed with this seat

Great product
I switched this seat from my stock iron seat, and surprisingly this seat was just as if not more comfortable than the stock seat. The seat gives you the same effect as a springer seat with its low profile but cuts the cost and labor in half with limiting the fabrication and extra work that goes in to installing the seat. I'd highly recommend this seat for anyone who's lolming for that low profile look!

Great seat for the price
This seat is a great upgrade. I needed something different than the stock Sportster 48 seat, which is hard as a rock, and this seat made all the difference. This seat is worth every penny. Its an easy install and after a couple rides to break in the seat it feels great. Only issue I had was that the first production of these seats did not fit the Forty-Eights. I contacted revzilla and they assured me that it was the correct seat but after contacting Biltwell I had to exchange the seat, with Biltewell, because of a change in production when they realized it didn't fit the Forty-Eights. Also the double stitch is no longer offered, it was switched to single swtich. Overall a great seat.

Simple, effective and stylish.
Loads more comfortable then the stock Forty-eight seat, it does have a bit of edge to keep you from sliding back.

It sets the lines and curves of the bike off, but keep in mind, its made for a tiny hiney. Great fit and trim. Install difficulty as low as a scale would go. On the 1 out of 5 Beer scale, 5 being the hardest, this would be a .75

It is what it is but looks pretty cool in the process!
This gave me the best of the worlds of a cool low profile and getting my feet closer to the ground. No less comfy than the stock saddle but looks a mile better, especially with more exposed frame.

TIRED OF LOOKING AT THAT OLE MAN SEAT
Kevin M on Nov 27, 2015
Hi there,

To put this seat in the Iron 883 2015 model do I need some kind of base?

Thanks!
A C on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: no, but this feels just a bit better than the OEM.
Would this seat work with a west eagle iron rivit rear fender on a 2014 iron 883?
A C on Feb 19, 2016
Ive seen other comments saying that this seat will not fit the Harley Sportster 48 without modding the seat. Is this true????
A shopper on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The early production seats will not fit the 48. Biltwell realized this and changed the seat to a longer mounting tab on the rear. They also no longer offer the double stitch design...they changed it to a single stitch design...if you do purchase the earlier version and it does not fit, you can contact Biltwell. They will send you the updated version at no charge with prepaid shopping for the old version for return. Revzilla is not aware of this and will tell you that it is supposed to fit and there is nothing they can do about it. They still may be selling the older version. I ran into this and Biltwell was very helpful.
will this fit on a 2015 iron 883 sportster?
A C on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: i have a 2016 iron.. i don't see why not.
With a little modification would this fit on a a 07 Honda Shadow or no way?
Braxton B on May 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: not familiar with the shadow but it the tongue of the seat lines up you may only have to drill
a hole in the rear fender.
Is this seat going to scoot me back a few inches?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't feel that this seat moved me back any. Right now I still have stock mid foot controls and Biltwell keystones Z bars so the riding position is more forward than I'd like right now. Eventually I'm going to swap the bars for 16" apes and move the foot controls forward. I will say that this seat feels more comfortable than the stock seat even with my forward riding position. The firm sculpted scoop of this seat feels perfect for my future upgrades. My bottom feels like it naturally wants to roll back and rest on the firm rear lip. In that instance it "may" move you back, or maybe it just feels like it does. Regardless, this seat is more comfortable than the stock seat, it's better quality, and gives a sick stripped solo look.
I have a 2000 XL1200 sport and wonder if this will fit?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It might but I don't use mine and can't send it back because I opened and tried it. It felt the same as the original.
Hi there,

Is it possible to use the HD Passenger Pillion 51744-07A with this seat?
A shopper on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: kind of ... usually it would connect to the front seat and you would screw the back on to the fender. with this seat you can only screw the back part. you would have to adjust the front to screw it in as well.

having said that, i use mine all the time only atached to the back.

hope this helps
I'm just curious if this seat will easily fit on a 2007 honda Shadow spirit?
