Swapping seats?

Post by mjrally » Tue Apr 16, 2019 2:07 am

Before I send the bench seat off my Tourist to Waffle, I wanted to ask if anyone knows if there’s gonna be any problems installing it on his end? There’s hooks in the back of my seat that latched into something on the fender (it’s been a while since I removed it and don’t remember all the details). I don’t see that with his tractor seat setup and am worried. Thanks guys.

looks to me like it bolts up to the rear fender guard where it bolts to the fender.

There should be two latch receptacle plates that bolt between the rear fender and the rear tube "bumper". Without those plates, the seat would only be held on by the front threaded stud.

I have the brackets needed to mount the seat in stock. There is a right and left. Both are required.

My 06 Tourist did not have the seat mounts, it has the two bolts up from below the fender...which is a crappy design.

I taught my wife some new words when I put on my first stepped seat and then learned my lesson by removing the rear wheel when I put on the bench seat. Didn't fit perfectly. I had to 'adjust' the rear fender bolt holes.
