    Hi,

    I own an Electra Standard 2005.

    Few month ago, i ordered a sundowner (51630-06 _ Sundowner™ Deep Bucket Seat - Street Glide® Stitching) but that was an error.

    I should have ordered an 51542-01B _ Sundowner for Electra 2005.

    The Road-king / Street Glide seat seems flater than the Electra's seat.
    I imagine that less comfortable.

    My question is, should i :
    - sell the "51630-06" to get a "51542-01B"
    or
    - keep the "51630-06"

    What can you tell about those 2 seats ?

    Thank you.

    I do know my flatter seat is more comfortable but mine is not stock reworked w/ memory foam..it is very hard in am 30 deg but softens up no pressure points..

    Why don't you try it. It may be more comfortable than you think.

    i rode 2000 miles with it.
    The original one is too soft, i can barely feel the plastic structure under it.
    The 51630-06 is almost ok but it's harder and it disturbs between the legs.
