Default Nighster seat on Iron

The title says it, does anyone know if the Nightster seat will fit a 2010 883 Iron?

Thanks for that Folkie. All a matter of personal taste but I always think the standard Iron seat's a bit overwhelming visually. The Nightster seat is slimmer but looks like it'd do the same job.

Have you tried sitting on a Nightster seat? I tried one (very) briefly, then quickly changed it to something much more comfortable (like a slab of concrete! ).

Why? It's a torture device.

No folks, I haven't sat on one, just looking at a Nightster the other day. If they're that bad I might stay with what I've already got. Thanks for the input.

I've got the stock seat on my Nightster and like it. I had a LePera Maverick LT on my last Sportster with biker gel. The stock Nightster seat feels almost identical. It's and not at all cushy though. It's probably a love it or hate it thing. I tweaked the suspension for comfort, not the seat.

Thanks ed
I'm happy enough with the stock seat but appearance wise I think it's a bit big. The Nightster seat looks that bit smaller.
