Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2016 Softail Slim i ordered the sundowner seat, went and picked it up. asked if i needed anything, said no, got home and took my seat off (solo seat). there is no mounting screw in the box. it says here online that it comes with a mounting screw. and on the slim, there is no bolt in the rear mount for the two up seats. just a plastic cover. i only have the bolt setup in the front mount on the fender. so... do i need mounting bolt setup or no. can i swap the front into the rear mount position? now i have to drive another 45 minutes to get something else

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a comfortable seat. Bought the bike new with only a solo saddle. Put on the Harley pillion pad seat , but very hard for passenger. The Sundowner is a great seat for any size passenger you have. Plus looks great.

Will this seat scratch my fender

I am looking for a seat that I can put on when riding with a passenger but then change back to original while riding alone. I have heard that these seats will scratch the fender. I just bought a new 2017 slim S and I would have a big issue if this were to happen. And can you also put a rack and back rest on the rear with this seat?

Seat rocks side to side

After installing this seat on my 2015 Softail Slim the seat rocks side to side. It is installed correctly, grab strap is tight and the seat mounting bolt is tight. I have taken it to my local dealer and was told they are not sure why it does that and they offered no fix. I have lost 4 mounting bolts since i have but this seat on a couple months ago. Any idea how to correct the side to side rocking?

Hi Tomdavis786, The Sundowner Seat is an exact fitment for your 2015 FLS. If you have attempted readjust the sitting w/ tightening the bolts and bracket--I would say go to another dealership that will offer assistance. If this does not work, please contact us H-D at: 1-800-258-2464. The side to side rocking can cause for an accident. Thank You.

Does Harley do a DEMO model of this seat, My stock seat puts extra pressure on my perineum. I have bought a after market seat still perineum problems. I can not just keep buying seats. will this seat help me.
Asked by: WillieMcGee
Hi Willie McGee, The Sundowner is a comfortable seat; however, you should visit/contact a local H-D dealer to see if a floor model is available. This seat will provide extra comforter towards the rear and middle while riding long distances. In addition, the elongated seat will also provide back support. Hope this helps!

How does this seat mount?

Will this seat set on the fender in a way that may damage the paint. Is this a set that could be taken off and put on easily when riding solo. I ride a 2016 Soft Tail Slim S with Olive Gold Denim paint. Thanks
Asked by: Newbi
Hey Newbi, You have excellent taste, that's currently my favorite bike! So you want to swap seats. This can be done, but guarantying that the rear fender won't be damaged is tough to do. There shouldn't be an issue, but can't say for sure. For your own piece of mind, I would head over to your local dealer and take a look at the bottom of the seat. From there you should be able to make a more informed decision. If all else fails, you could use the protective tape that's used on the rear fenders of bikes that come stock with a two-up seat.

Passenger seat for 2014 Slim

Hello, Is it still the case that only the passenger pillon that is originally delivered with the bike (and pictured above) is the only one that fits a 2014 Slim? Is there no option at all for a decent passenger seat, that would not damage the fender, so it can be replaced with the solo seat at will? Hard to believe. Thank you
Asked by: Pilos
Hey Pilos. Right now, the Slim Passenger Pillion is the only option we have unless you want to go with a two-up seat.
