Sundowner Solo Seat is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable I've had lower spine problems and back pain for decades and so the seat on my bike is really important. I absolutely LOVE this seat the way that it wraps around the riders lower back and tailbone. Every time I accelerate I can feel the support right where I need it and I can ride for hours with this seat in absolute comfort and NO PAIN after my ride. Could not recommend this product more highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment I shopped around for a while before finally settling on this seat. After considering all the seat options and prices, I found that this was priced right and the reviews were mostly positive. Here are the pros & cons: Pros: Price, Comfort, Ease of Installation Cons: Fit. I bought this for my XL883N, after installing it the fit left a gap about 2.5" between my tank and front of seat. It also positioned me further back changing the rider position to a more stretched out position. Honestly, this is a more of a pro for me than con. I am 6', 240#'s, this was like getting free forward controls. I showed it a a con as some may not like the stretched out position. I have placed about 750 miles on the seat, A couple of 3 or 4 hour rides and have had no issues with my tail bone. This was a great and affordable upgrade that made it worth the investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This seat is good for the two up combo I bought this seat because I wanted to get a 2 up seat so my wife could ride conftablely. I wish this seat was a little longer to fill in the gap to the tank and didn't get narrow so fast. I feel it's a little better then the stock seat but could be even better. My wife loves the passenger pillon I bought with this seat. If she is happy I am happy. This is a good seat but I think it could be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable This is a very comfortable seat. Huge improvement over the stock seat. It take's a few hundred miles to break in but after that it's the best seat you can get IMO. It does look a little big on a sportster, like a fluffy pillow sitting on the frame. So if you're all about looks you might wanna save this for longer rides. But I can ride all day on this seat and be super comfortable.

There is a gab between the seat and the tank on the 2016 Iron 883. Is there a purchasable part which will fill this gap and make it look better?

Asked by: IronmanLA883

Will you be offering the Sundowner Solo seat to earlier Models of Sportster such as a 2006 1200C.

I always wanted a nice solo seat with the quality of my Sundowner Two Up seat on my 2006 1200c Sportster. Can you special order if not planned to offered?
Asked by: SeatPlease06

After installation, will this seat have a gap between the front of seat and the tank on a Sportster with a 3.3 peanut tank?

Asked by: Kenny883
The short answer to your question Kenny883 on if there will be a gap between the smaller 3.3-gal. fuel tank and the Sundowner Solo seat is: YES! The fact is, that even with the 4.5-gal. fuel tank on the Sportster there is still a 5/16th (7.9375mm) gap between tank and seat. NOTE: When removing the original equipment seat from Sportster between the 4.5-gal fuel tank and where the original seat sat there may be some dirt and/or a slight discoloration on the tanks paint in that spot and cleaning and polishing of the tank may be required. The small 5/16th gap left from the Sundowners’ Solo seat will allow for easy access between tank and seat for better cleaning in the future. It will also prevent any unnecessary fuel tank paint damage between seat and fuel tank wall, too. I hope this helps.
