Suggestions on after market rider and passenger seat

I'm looking for a good after market sear for rider and passenger for my CTX1300 bike. I'm 6'4" and 250+ lbs.

In the past, I've had the Corbin seat for a Honda Goldwing. And it wasn't as comfortable as I expected for the price. But this was some years back.

I've had the Ultimate seat for my Honda VTX1800R and have been very pleased with it for the rider and the passenger experience. But they don't make a seat for the VTX1300.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am 6’ 200lbs and just bought the Corbin. My wife and I just did a 6000km trip and it is the first time that my tailbone didn’t hurt. My wife said it was so comfortable and loves it also. Well worth the money in my opinion.

@[email protected] I put a Diamond Custom Seat on my CTX about 2k ago and I absolutely love it. More importantly my better half loves it. The stock seat for the pillion seems like it may have been an afterthought or they were just going for looks. She was not able to do more than about 300 miles in a day w/o it being painful. With the new seat she can go all day and never even think about it. In fact we just finished a trip into Canada that was over 1k and she never once mentioned being uncomfortable.

Some manufacturers like Corbin use their own seat pan while most others need a pan supplied by you. You can send yours in and wait to ride or purchase a second seat (like I did) and keep riding while you wait. Here is a link to a thread that has some of the seats mentioned above. Notice on the Diamond Custom seat that there is a significant different in how the back seat is done.

I have a Diamond Custom and love it. I have had no complaints from several passengers Ive taken for rides. They are built specifically for you based on measurements you provide.

They don't list CTX1300 on their site. How much was it?

See post #44 in this thread... Cost, pics etc... I have the same seat and it is great both front and back. Over the miles it just keep getting more comfy. As for the pillion seat, my wife and I have done several 500 mile plus days now and she says it is super comfortable. No aches or next day soreness at all.
