Passenger Seat

Hey guys,

does anyone of you have a more comfortable passenger seat?

My girlfriend starts crying after 1 hour of riding because her as* hurts so much.

If anyone found something, please let me know!

Cheers

I myself am waiting on a more comfortable passenger, I don't blame the lady - it's really not that comfortable. [The honda one] I can't wait for some more accessories to come out!

Passenger seat comes standard in Australia. I went to take mine off today, unfortunately the front mounting bolt is "ugly as" and there appears to be a distinct lack of bolts to match the rear bolt (all the fender bolts) not a single one available on any AU website. Seat is back on and it looks like Im off to Bunnings to find something acceptable.

Gypsy,

I used stainless steel button head Allen head bolts for replacements. If you don't like them shiny hit them with a magic marker.

Hi Kenny. For these holes I just put black rubber grommets in. Looks a bit neater. For the side ones because I have the wrench rack I bought stainless button heads too but they're black treated stainless instead of regular silver.
