VTX 1800 F Midrider Seat - Plain or Studded
Our Midrider seat is designed to sit the driver at the same height and the same distance from the handlebars as the seating position of the Honda® OEM stock seat. Our Honda® VTX 1800 F Midrider seat is designed so you sit in the seat, not on the seat. The Midrider seat is 16 inches wide.
The Ultimate passenger seat is 12" wide. The passenger seat has been designed with a steeper nose angle to help prevent the passenger from sliding forward into the driver. The same high quality comfort memory foam that is in the driver seat is in the passenger seat, and it has been molded to give your very important passenger the Ultimate support. (put them in comfort heaven).
NOTE: The VTX 1800 F model is built on stock seat pans (PLEASE NOTE: WE ONLY EXCEPT HONDA® OEM VTX 1800 F STOCK SEATS IN OUR CORE EXCHANGE PROGRAM). We offer three options regarding your stock seats:
- You keep your stock seat(s) and are charged a core charge ($150 driver seat, $50 passenger seat).
- You ship your stock seat(s) to us before placing your order and are not charge the ($150 driver seat, $50 passenger seat) core charge.
- You place your order, and are charged a refundable ($150 driver seat, $50 passenger seat) core charge which will be refunded upon receipt of your stock seat(s).
Honda® OEM passenger seat WILL fit with the Ultimate VTX 1800 F Midrider seat. Honda® OEM driver seat WILL NOT fit with the Ultimate passenger seat.
There is no driver backrest available for the 1800 F Midrider model. Our passenger seat is designed to fit flush with the driver seat lower back support area which gives the driver 7 1/2 inches of lower back support.
Ultimate Sissy Bar Pad
The large Ultimate sissy bar pad is 12" wide and 8" high. It sits your passenger 10 degrees straighter than the stock pad, which helps eliminate back fatigue on long rides. The pad comes with stainless steel screws and fits on your Honda® sissy bar. We also manufacture sissy bar pads that will fit other aftermarket sissy bars.
When you place your order, we will ask you which make and model sissy bar you have and whether its 2, 3 or 4 bolt mount configuration. We'll also need the measurements, from center of bolt to center of bolt, of where the pad mounts to the sissy bar.
Our standard seat stitching thread color is black. Different embroidered logos and seat stitching thread colors are available. Please see Custom Options tab found above.
Leather Versus Vinyl and Rain Covers
Leather seating in our homes or vehicles works well for some users however leather seats do not weather well left out in the sun and rain.
In my opinion, there are no advantages with a leather seat on a motorcycle.
Most people cannot visually tell the difference between our premium marine grade Vinyl and Leather unless they are side by side and then it needs to be pointed out which is which.
Neither Leather or Vinyl breathes except through the stitching.
Neither seats, Vinyl or Leather are waterproof. A Vinyl seat will let water in through the stitching and Leather will do the same and also soak through the hide if it gets really wet.
Durability is similar but our premium Vinyl will hold its shape and new look longer than Leather.
A rain cover should be used to prevent water from seeping through the stitches into the comfort foam.
We recommend you cover your seats with our waterproof ride on rain covers when your bike is sitting or riding in the rain.
Enjoy the ride again,
