Installation of Mustang Seat:
Note: This seat will not fit with an FLHT handrail.
1. Remove any seat supports from the frame rails and be sure wiring is
routed along the inside of the frame rails. If necessary, cut the factory
tie wraps and retie with supplied black zip ties. CVO models: Remove
any plastic trim from the fender so the Mustang seat installs on the bare
fender.
2. If the seat is heated, connect the cable to the accessory port. Be sure
port is free of dirt and debris. If the accessory port is already in use, use
Harley® part 70264-94A or 70270-04 to add additional ports. Check to
be sure there are no folds or kinks in the wire before installing seat.
Using a Backrest:

frame-mounted backrest kit. The post on the Mustang kit is bent to
account for the angle. It may be necessary to add washers as spacers to
the front mount to refine the angle.
2. Seats without a split in the baseplate but with a split in the cover use
a straight-post Mustang backrest. A bent-post backrest from a framemounted backrest kit will not work with these seats.
3. Engage the nose bracket into the frame.
4. A firm downward punch or chop to the nose of the seat will push the
seat closer to the chrome dash. If there is a gap at the dash, the dash
can be adjusted by loosening the ½” hex nut and Phillips screw on the
dash, sliding the dash back and retightening. On 2004 and newer
models, the seat’s nose bracket can be bent away from seat about ¼”
for best fit.
Enjoy the comfort and custom look of your new Mustang seat!
Note: Seats not specifically made for FLHRS models will slightly overlap
the dash on these bikes. Seats designed for FLHRS models will fit the
dash correctly.
5. The seat is spring-loaded, so the rear mounting bracket will be
approximately 1” to 1-1/2” above the fender mount. Gently push seat
down and secure to fender with stock screw.
6. Mustang suggests that a rack-mounted backrest be set to the
rearmost position. Fully loosen the four nuts under the outer rack
channels and tap the backrest rearward to the end of the slots, and
retighten the nuts.
