# 1. 7/8" bars
#2.You have to modify the stock seat or buy a different seat such as a meanstreak has or a some have used a harley seat the stock seat bolts to the backrest. You can also do away with the aluminum fender struts.The fender is supported by the frame tabs.

I modified my seat and cut off the backrest section of it, reshaped the foam and added tabs on each side that the fender bolts go through before i recovered it. If you pick up a harley seat or some other seat with the tab sticking out the back you drill a hole in the fender from the top and bolt it down that way .Click on my username and go to my profile and look at the different pictures of my bike and you can see how it will turn out,I shoulda documented the seat modification process,but did not think of it at the time.
