Oh yeah - it'll fit any seat - not tailored specifically to Mustang branded seats. :)

Thank you for that info, Denise! How's the foot?

OK. I need to know. How many of these mustang seat threads are started just so Mark and MBB will make an appearance? :)

Most seats are made of vinyl which is fairly waterproof. But of course the edges of stitching etc would not be, and water could certainly seep into the foam from these areas.

Not to hijack, but
I just got back from a 500 mile ride. My butt is sore at the top of the crack, where the little backrest/ledge on the stock seat is pushing it. From the picture, Mustang seats have this ledge too, is it softer or something?

Wider and more lower back support, depending on the model you buy - assume for your Spirit 1100?

Yep!
ME880s were awesome too in the rain
