Sundowner Seat is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from False Adverising I ordered this seat thinking that the sissy bar came with it just as its shown in the picture. The listing doesn't clearly state that a sissy bar isn't included. Needless to say I was disappointed when I picked the seat up. I understand these products are of high quality and are worth what you pay for them but I didn't appreciate being misled so to speak on the content of the product listing.

Will 5144-01A work with 4.5 Gallon Tank

I have this seat on my 2000 Sportster 1200 Custom with a 3.3 gallon tank, but I am thinking about replacing the 3.3 gallon tank with a 4.5 gallon tank. Will this seat work, or will I have to change seats?
