seat

Does anyone know if there's a difference in the height of the rear of the seat between model years? My bike is an 1990 A5 UK spec with the chrome sissybar with backrest, I have a cast alloy fantail, must be off an earlier model, any pictures I've looked at the rail runs around the edge of the seat but my seat at the back looks about an inch or so short? Also are all toolboxes the same?

I have not managed to post photos to this page ( unsure how to) but I have managed to put them on my album named toolbox, seen these on fleabay, there are clearly 2 different toolboxes, mine being the shorter one (no top mounting hole) so, I'm thinking there must be two different seats aswell!

Not that I know of. You have the extended backrest, and the luggage rack. Tool
Boxes as far as I am aware are all the same. The only diffence is the strap on the seat, which is not a required item in the states. But is in the UK.
Can not find an album named "toolbox"...

Perhaps you need to put your photos on a separate site, like Photobucket, and post links to it (or the ones you say are here)

That smaller toolbox looks like one from the EN or LTD not the Vulcan/VN

As stated, the VN700/VN750 seat remained unchanged from 1985 to 2006, as did the toolbox in the back.
