New seat arrives
Samurider sent a KH tall seat in plain black to help my long legs with more room. It’s a piece of art. I’ll try and attach pics. It feels great and has thicker foam too.

RE: New seat arrives
Not much wider. It’s higher quality than the stock seat. They use screws instead of staples. And it’s a denser foam. I don’t sink into the soft foam like I did the stock seat. I have long legs and it just cramped my hips and ankles. I have some black CNC 25mm pegs coming and between the two I’ll be ready to ride coast to coastSmile

RE: New seat arrives
I have considered buying a better seat for my EX because I feel a little cramped.
I am 6'2" tall and have a 32 inch inseam.
So I have to ask: How tall are you and what is your inseam?

Are the pegs to be lower than the Honda ones?

6’, 34” inseam. 220lbs.
The seat helps greatly.
The CNC footpegs can be ordered in regular, 25mm, 40mm, or 50mm lower. My first set was the 40-50mm lower but they would not work without modifying the kickstand a bit because the bracket hit it. I have some 25mm ones on way. They are black bracket and black peg. They look absolutely awesome with my 2014 standard with all the blacked out chrome. The more I ride and look at this bike the more I fall in love with it. If I have too many highballs I might try and have sex with it. Probably too much info for fellow forum members but man she’s a beauty.
Anyhow, the extra two inches with seat, plus no sinking foam along with almost an inch lower pegs should hit the Goldilocks spot.
This forum has been a great source of information for me. If you like I’ll post pictures of the pegs and brackets after new ones installed.
It’s going to look even better and help out with my different lower body challenges.
I’m so happy I bought a leftover 2014 in black. I really like the black cast wheels, the 6th gear, and the upgraded (from earlier models) digital dash.
The black chrome Honda made is as high quality as late model Harley’s and I think it makes the motor look good compared to the lighter color grayish ones.
I just got through working so this post is in wee hours of morning. And no I have not had any highballs yet so she’s safe tonightSmile

I weight 225 pounds, so the seat would probably improve my riding position and comfort.

I would like pictures of the pegs, and a review of the seat after a few long rides. Thanks!

to be quite honest with you, I don't see how anyone gets a staple in the oem seat pan! I have heavy duty carpenter's stapler and pretty strong staples and they just squash instead of piercing the pan! I pulled an oem staple and they are so flimsy! how did they get them into that pan? I'm completely at a loss!

I’m pretty sure it has something to do with the Force, Jim. Maybe popgun will explain.

RE: New seat arrives
all due respect, the carpenter's stapler has massive force. it is squashing the staples completely flat they just don't go in the plastic. and I am pushing against it. harder I push, flatter they get. the staples have a beveled edge, but must not be sharp enough I guess. I'm going to take it to an upholstery shop.
