Street Ninja, I can't cut off more from the back, it has to bolt to the fender where it is. If I cut it shorter from the back I would have a long strip of metal havin to go from the seat to the intended hole in the fender to bolt the seat down. And Dave STFU, Thanks lol

Dave's kind of right.
In my opinion I think the bike looks good, but that seat looks kind of floppy.

I'm not sure why, personally I think it looks good for what it is. Its the stock plastic seat pan with the foam shaved down to fit my size better, and then I recovered it with the same leather as stock. I guess yall dont like the flatness of it? But when it was stock, everybody was sayin it looked stupid and needed to be shaved down. Me personally like it. I can't make it smaller because it covers the bikes computer (That is mounted on the rear fender) from the weather so it has to have the seat there on the fender. I think dave c doesnt like it cause it doesnt have that bend up in the back like a old school spring seat. But Thats what I cut off due to me havin to scoot further back cause of my height
Before (you can see the BIG hump I had to cut down to fit me back further)

And on the pic your referring to shiney, thats actually a crease molded into the stock piece. it came like that, not sure why but the leather is pulled tight against the crease. It looks like it is the leather folded but really not. Look at the other pics closely and you'll see what i mean

The plastic seat frame is like that, not the wrap job or my intentional way of doin that. get the over it biches, im makin a list of fugly sh*t on yalls bike as well....dave c your bike is on page 2!!!! lolololololol gotcha

I just bought some Vance & Hines ShortShots for $185 off Ebay!!!!! I literally saw it like 3 minutes after he posted them. Its a Custom Shop who took them off to do a Custom Build. They are used but the only thing wrong is the bottom pipe has a line where he drug it durin a turn, not noticable without taking pipe off bike, I CANT BELIEVE IT, these things run around $400-$500 new.....I'll post pics when I get them and put them on

Heres the picture of them on a stock nightster

Very clean.

Is it a fiber filter? Will rain effect it? and will you have to rejet?
