Our Midrider seat will sit you at the same height and the same distance to the handlebars as your stock seat. Our Yamaha® Royal Star Midrider is designed so you sit in the seat, not on the seat. The Midrider driver seat is 17 inches wide. The Ultimate passenger seat is 14 inches wide with comfort to spare and fits with all passenger backrest sissy bars. Driver backrest bracket is built into passenger seat. You will need to have our passenger seat in order to use our driver backrest.

All Ultimate Royal Star passenger seats have the driver backrest hardware built into them, so you can add the backrest at any time.
- Pad measures 7" high by 10" wide by 1.5" thick.

- Infinite tilt to match your back angle.
- Backrest folds down forward for easily mounting and dismounting your Royal Star.
- 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.

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 Ultimate large sissy bar pad is 12" wide, 8" high and 2" thick. The pad comes with stainless steel screws and fits on your stock Yamaha® sissy bar. This pad is designed for the tall Yamaha® sissy bar. We also manufacture large sissy bar pads that will fit other aftermarket sissy bars.
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,
