but since the frames are different, this probably would not work without some modifications. I have seen some people mount solo seats on their 500, so post photos or info on how you or your friend mounted it.
I'm thinking about modding my seat too. I still want the option of having a passenger, so I think I might take it to get reupholstered without the buttons and then have a matte black color. Also have the passenger section shaved off a little on the top so it doesn't look so big. Should be pretty easy to do and cost effective...
so I have looked at this mod as well. Just so it has been said and opened up for discussion, solo sprung saddle seems odd on a soft tail. second our seat only bolts into the rear fender. third having a plastic seat pan and a fuse panel under it makes the gap created.
so my thought is to try and to cut off the back of seat pan and reshape the back of the foam.
Hi, I have recently purchased an 03 and it came with a solo seat. I am not sure but to me it appears that someone has simply cut down the stock seat and re-worked the material at the back. Given the snow we have on the ground I have not had a chance to ride and can not tell how comfortable it will be. I will try to post some pictures.
you can bolt any bobber seat it just takes some thinking. i got one on mine its rough just till i get my stock recovered. check out this site paul anderson shows you how to mod a seat http://www.en500.us/
