900 seat

Well found a 900 seat in great condition, figure once it gets here will size up what needs to be done, but figure instead of all the frame mods to fit the seat Ill strip the seat to the pan and mod the pan to fit the frame.then build new side spars out of stainless and and design in a backrest mount for the passenger, and see if its possible to build a drivers through the seat, and have fat asp seats make the seat 2 pieces possibly

What frame mods?
I didn't have to mod the frame to put my 900 seat on.

thats what I am wondering too.. I thought a bracket was mounted to the pan, then bolted onto the frame using the old fender strut holes

I figure he's talking about the supports I added to mine. You can do it with out extra supports but it doesn't touch much until you weight it down. I just prefer some thing solid supported before I get on it.

The bolted on bar in the back, the pvc pipe, Not saying its bad, simply stating That building up the pan with aluminum custom milled spacers with rubber pads will be how we do it. Theres some improvements that can be made to better fit it to the bike while leaving it totally stock so the factory stuff can be slid right on should one want to, Have a company here called fat asp seats that loves to tinker with custom one off builds, so going to see if its worth while to alter the pan and seat to slip a drivers backrest in it. I find it amusing you jumped right in and took it personal, when I posted on it. heres a few examples of my work. Some of the stuff made by hand one off for my strat

most of the custom fabrication is all done by hand in aluminum with a band saw or cut with a waterjet in the stainless work then hand sanded and polished
