FLH® 2008-2013 2-Piece Seat and Driver Backrest
These are 2-piece systems. The driver seat can be used solo or in combination with the Ultimate passenger seat for 2-up riding.
Both Midrider and Tall Boy are designed to sit you in the seat, not on the seat.
If you are riding an Ultra Classic® or Electra Glide®, our Midrider seat will sit you 1" further back from the handlebars and at the same ride height as the stock seat. If you are on a Road King®, Road Glide® or Street Glide®, the Midrider seat will sit you at the same distance to the handlebars and the same ride height as the stock seat. The Midrider seat is 16 inches wide.
If you are riding an Ultra Classic® or Electra Glide®, our Tall Boy seat will sit you 2.5" inches further back from the handlebars and at the same ride height as the stock seat. If you are on a Road King®, Road Glide® or Street Glide®, the Tall Boy will sit you 1.5" further back from the handlebars and at the same ride height as the stock seat. The Tall Boy seat is 16 inches wide.
Ultimate Passenger Seat
The Ultimate passenger seat fits with all passenger backrest sissy bars and tour packs. The Ultimate FLH® passenger seat is 14 inches wide with comfort to spare.
Ultimate Removable Driver Backrest
All Ultimate Harley-Davidson® FLH® 2-Piece driver seats have the driver backrest hardware built into them, so you can add the backrest at any time. The driver backrest quickly and easily slides in and out with a built in spring loaded plunger lock that is part of the backrest hardware permanently mounted inside the seat.
- Pad measures 7" high by 10" wide by 1.5" thick.
- Built using the same memory foam as our seats.
- Infinite tilt to match your back angle.
- Backrest folds down forward for easily mounting and dismounting your FLH®.
- Adjustment forward and back is more than 2 inches.
- Adjusts with a thumb screw while you're riding.
- No need to remove the seat or use a wrench.
- Includes zipper storage pouch that velcros to the back of the backrest.
Detachable storage pouch measures 9"W x 6"H and is protected by the driver backrest built in rain flap.
Ultimate Sissy Bar Pad
The large Ultimate sissy bar pad is 12" wide and 8" high. We have engineered the pad with the correct back angle and thickness. This gives your passenger more room and comfort, which helps to eliminate back fatigue on long rides. The Ultimate sissy bar pad bolts right on to your Harley-Davidson® sissy bar and comes with stainless steel screws. 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. If it is not a Harley-Davidson® OEM sissy bar, we'll need to know 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 2-piece seat sets install like stock with no modifications. If your bike originally had a 1-piece seat, you can now have a-2 piece seat system. Our seats are designed to fit perfectly with they Harley-Davidson® Tour Pack and/or Harley-Davidson® Sissy bar.
The Ultimate driver seat installs with the front locator bracket and two grooved nuts (supplied) onto the existing rear fender bolts. The Ultimate passenger seat installs into the rear fender nuts with the existing rear fender bolt and can be removed in seconds.

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,
