What you need to know:
•The seat comes complete (Seat pan, foam, cover installed and a way to attach it to the motorcycle.
•This seat pan is made from a fiberglass construction.
•There is 2.25" of foam, stock is 1.75".
•The price for the complete seat is $375, if you wanted just the seat pan, foam and latch the price is $260. See our related products to purchase this combo.
•The 4 chrome caps are meant as a simple fix the front 2 will snap in with just a little bit of silicone holding them in place but the back 2 caps will need a little extra silicone because of the recess's in the frame. A few other options you can do is paint the 4 bolts and screw them back into the fender or get some custom chrome caps that will attach to the bolts.
•The seat has a vinyl cover and open cell foam. We use a protective glue to bond the cover to the seat foam, but this seal is not water proof but water resistance. Please have caution when washing your motorcycle, driving in heavy rain or leaving your motorcycle in the rain for long periods of time. If necessary you could drill 1/4" holes in the bottom of the pan to help drain any water.
•How does this compare to my stock seat?
We changed the shape and height of the seat for more comfort and style and a better center of gravity, PLUS more foam then stock!
•How is the seat cover attached to the seat pan?
The seat cover is glued to the seat pan, we do not suggest trying to remove the cover as it will tear the foam.
•How will the seat attach to my bike?
The latching bracket and Velcro will be pre attached to the seat so all you will have to attach is the other side of the Velcro to the fender. If you decide to keep the passenger seat on the bike, we recommend to slip the back of the seat under the passenger seat then latch the LM Low Rider seat to the bike. Other wise if the passenger seat is removed you can just attach the seat latch first.
•Will i have to relocate the tools under the seat?
Yes, the custom seat is a little lower to the battery and the tools will not be able to fit in that pocket that existed between the stock seat and battery.
•Will this still work with my passenger seat?
Yes, but for a cleaner look you can remove the back seat and you can add 4 custom chrome caps for an additional $10.00.
•How does the back of the seat lock down?
We used an industrial dual lock Velcro on the back under side of the seat pan with another piece of Velcro attached to the rear fender.
