Below are a series of side by side photos to show the difference between the OEM and the E.D Big Touring Seat.
FIRST set of photos shows explains why so many of you riders are experiencing discomfort in the groin, tailbone, and under thigh areas.
OEM (on the top): Take note of the hump all the way down the middle from front to back, how it rolls off on the sides where your sit bones should be.
E.D. (on the bottom): Shows, with the level, how we have eliminated these hot spots and contoured the seat to correct these pressure point areas.
SECOND set of photos highlights the length of usable sitting surface.
OEM (on the top): Has considerable less usable space from front to back. Pushing the level back any further than this point causes the level to rise on the backside upwards of 1-1/2 inches, leaving a gap to the sitting surface and creating a pressure point at the lower tailbone area.
E.D. (on the bottom): Gives the rider more surface area without the pressure on the tailbone and leaves no gap when sliding level all the way back. You can see there is about three inches more length front to back, and our seat is two inches wider at the back.
THIRD set of photos gives a side view of each seat which highlights the sitting surface at a different angle.
OEM (on the top): You can see the potato chip shape and the dip in the middle where the seat runs out of usable space.
E.D. (on the bottom): Shows the correct contour to promote comfort.
LAST set of photos shows the bottom of the seat cushion and how it is stapled on.
OEM (on the top) and E.D. (on the bottom):
You can see that this E.D. Seat is ON an OEM seat pan.
This is called our Big Touring OEM Kit. It offers the same comfort as our replacement seat but without the added cost of our seat pan.
E.D. Seats BIG TOURING KIT is only available for the Road Star. It cannot be purchased on my website; you need to contact me direct to purchase this kit.
If you are looking to get maximum comfort on a minimum budget, then look no further, this is for YOU!
I could put this comparison up against ANY aftermarket seat on the market and get equal results.
~ Do not buy this seat if you enjoy the pain associated with your stock seat or any other aftermarket seat you already own. If you enjoy riding in comfort and want to be able to walk the next day, then this seat is for YOU! ~
This is sold as a DIY kit and is very easy to assemble. However, if you do not want to DIY, then simply ship me your OEM seat and I will mount it for you for just the cost of seat plus shipping.
Price is $225 with studs / $200 without studs (plus shipping).
