Valkyrie Interstate King Seat and Driver Backrest - Plain or Studded - (1999 - 2001)
Our King seat is designed to sit the driver 1 inch higher and 2 inches further back from the handlebars as the seating position of the Honda® OEM stock seat. We recommend the King for drivers 260 pounds or more and/or drivers over 6 foot 3 inches tall and/or with a leg inseam over 34 inches. We have designed this seat with an increased nose angle so you sit back into the seat, and it prevents you from sliding forward while braking. The King seat is 19 inches wide.
The Ultimate passenger seat is 16 inches wide with comfort to spare. 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).

Our new passenger backrest includes a major comfort modification, your passenger will now sit 10 degrees more vertical. This takes away the back fatigue on those long rides. The backrest has a new comfort foam insert and is recovered with our upgraded materials and includes the embroidered V and ULTIMATE logo.
We use the O.E. backrest base pan to build the Ultimate backrest. Changeover: We ship you the new passenger backrest and you ship back your old one. We have a $100 refundable core charge for your exchange stock passenger backrest. This is added to your invoice. After you receive your new Ultimate passenger backrest you ship your stock passenger backrest to our warehouse for refund.
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.
