    The Shad seat looks slightly taller than the stock seat at the front. But the foam is much softer, so you sink into it. I'd bet you'll feel even lower on the Shad seat, especially after 5000 miles when the foam really breaks in. (I had a Shad for 5000 miles and I have another new one now).

    Very useful piece of info to know - however, I hope you don't have the new one because the old one is already too squished ??? I hope for that kind of money they have a longer life... ?

    Well, the actual story was that I had the Shad because it was the best thing going at the time. I used it 5000 miles, then a Saddlemen came along and I switched to it for awhile. After using the Saddlemen, I was no longer happy with the squished Shad. So the Shad was sold. Fast forward a couple years and I ended up with a second NC700 that needed a seat I could tolerate, so I saw a cheap Shad on eBay and put it on for the time being. I think I'll use it only until I can try a Russell that's actually built for me. If the the Russell doesn't pan out, well I don't know what I'll do. (I guess I'll take the Goldwing to Alaska instead of the NC).

    Yup, I noticed that the Shad seat bumped into the topcase when I first put it on 3 years ago. I still have that happen but it's not much of a problem. I also had some problems with alignment of the seat when I installed it. My post was earlier in this thread.

    One issue that I've had come up since then is that the left hand bolt holding the front seat in walks it's way loose from full tight. It does it over 2 or 3 tanks of gas for me. I put some light weight locktite on it and that's stopped it. I don't know if anybody else gets that but you might want to keep an eye on it.

    Saw this and thought a lock washer might be good option here.

    Got the Shad yesterday and the 20 min. Install took 4 hours. Because my existing stock seat did not have the rubber bushings and steel collar. Priced the parts from Honda at $32 + ship. So i went to Ace and got parts for $6.50. THen installed front. Had to thin the plastic to successfully install the front rubber feet. Had to add felt pads under them to make up for that removed thickness. Then it fit well. Back seat went on easily and shuts/opens easily. The back came with no embroidery that I expected/wanted and was in the Amazon picture. Rode on it first time this morning. Felt good but the proof will be in the next long ride.
