Splitt - does the seat move you higher besides placing you further back?

I'm guessing that it sets me over an inch back and maybe 3/4" or so higher.

BTW: I was running a Springfield seat previously. I thought that the Springfield seat was more comfortable than my chieftain seat.

I always liked the look of the Springfield seat.

Added Stage 1 and Stage 2 today. Thought I’d try something different. Since the engine is black and silver I went with black slip ons with silver tips.

Just installed

Nice bike. I never realized the rear fender had graphics on it. Thanks for showing pics without the bags.

How do you like the sound with the new speakers? I’m close to pulling the trigger on a set but they’re so expensive I wanted to hear some reviews on the sound

Kost - how do you like the sound of your Rhinehart exhaust system? The bike looks awesome!

The Rinehart Slimline Dual Exhaust system sounds pretty sick, very deep and muscular, also mounted are Rinehart 4" slip-on for Indian Touring.

Here is other side...also Indian Stage 2 Cams, tuned by CraigB1960.

I was hesitant at first, I thought surely they cant be that much better. I've been pleasantly surprised, they are much louder from 50wt to 100wt per speaker and the clarity is significant as well. Still not much in terms of lows, but honestly the lows get drowned out at speed. Pic shows the magnet difference. These are made out of neodymium which is best you can buy in the market today and one of the reasons they sound so good.

Just out of curiosity, I went out and did some measurements on my seats.

Length from the front of the seat to the seam in the dish.
Chieftain - 15-1/2"
Springfield - 15-1/8"
Ultimate Tallboy - 17-1/4"

Width at the widest part (measured from outside of seam to outside of seam)
Chieftain - 14"
Springfield - 13-3/4"
Ultimate Tallboy - 15-5/8"

Height (difference from the bottom of the dish to the top of the back of seat)
Chieftain - 3-3/4"
Springfield - 3-5/8"
Ultimate Tallboy - 5-1/8"
