    Can someone please clarify the situation regarding seats.
    i.e.
    If a seat fits an 04/05 (i.e. pre fuel injection) XL1200R, will the same seat fit the same year but on an XL1200C?
    and
    If a seat fits an 04/05 (i.e. pre fuel injection) XL1200C, will the same seat fit the same year but on an XL1200R?
    I have come to the conculsion that the only difference, assuming the same model year, is maybe due to the size of the tank. If someone could clarify what the criteria is here - I would be most greatful....and, I'm still lookin for the bracket / link pipe jobby for the original pipes for my XL1200R (04/05 model). Thanks.

    When I changed my fuel tank to the larger 4.5 gal and had the seat off to put my Drag Specialties flame seat on; I noticed that the fender did have a second mounting hole further up the fender for the OEM passenger strap...would a solo seat use this mounting hole? Just curious... :33:

    Thanks Hobbit! -- just wanted to clarify and "--Up the Ante" for CAPNJAPSEYE, that there are options besides the standard dual pillion saddle that came as OEM on the 2004 XL1200R, besides the smaller 3.3 gal tank. Decisions - Decisions :33:

    BTW Hobbit, was a good read on the new '09 Bike(S) you now have in your stable...which one gets the "Bubble" and which one tows the "Trailer"? :D
