  • Model


Some Harley-Davidson® seats are made of leather. Fine leathers or other natural materials WILL gain "character," such as wrinkles or wear, with age. This is normal. A fine, aged patina and character wrinkles are a sign of the extremely high quality materials used to construct your seat or backrest. The appearance of scars or marks on the leather are a result of using natural leather panels and should not be thought of as an imperfection. Please use Harley-Davidson® Leather Protectant P/N 93600034 to protect your investment.

Black Diamond Solo Spring Saddle is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from very comfortable but... man I really love this seat the comfort and style are amazing, but the quality is not there. I had put less than 50 miles on the seat and the leather by the seat pan tore. It was not even the stitching, it was the leather itself. My HD dealer was very cool about it and are going to replace it under warranty, but I still have to wait for a new one to show up. I am also worried the new one will rip as well since it seems to be a trend with this seat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Torn Seat I love the seat and it looks good on my Seventy Two. However, I had my local HD dealer order this seat for me and when it arrived the leather had a 1.5 inch rip on the rear of the seat. I let them go ahead and install with the promise they were ordering another one but three weeks later and it still hasn't come in. I would give 5 stars if it didn't have the rip in the rear of the seat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Black Diamond solo springer seat It looks great on my sporty Iron, but it digs into my thighs at the edge of the seat due to the stitched pipping around the edge and its uncontoured shape where the thighs sit. Im thinking of going with the other springer seat for the sporty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seat Review I installed this seat on a 2010 FXD. I am above average build and this seat causes my right thigh to touch the rear rocker box while I am at a stop.

What is the height compared to a std XL883L seat and can the height be adjusted?

I looking for a flat style solo seat at least 2" taller to put the rider in an upright position. I have 13" shocks and 883 Iron bars on it already.

Hi Alex820, No, the Black Diamond Solo Spring Saddle does not include the springs. The Spring Saddle Installation Kit is sold separately. 54074-10A is the Spring Saddle Installation Kit for ’04-’06 and ’10-later XL models. 54075-10A is the Spring Saddle Installation Kit for '06-later Dyna® models. Thank you for your question.
