If it works out , I will drop the tools and foam off to you , there will be lots of foam left over .
I'm doing the taillight and forwards first , so in a few days I will be starting the seat,

Dave, interested to see what you end up doing with the stock seat.
It is held on by the seat bolts.The seat base and sissy bar came off a 2005 big dog.I made the seat and bolted it to it with counter sunk bolts from the bottom.I call it the tush-cush.She likes it.

Anyone know if there is an aftermarket pasenger seat that will work with the OEM sissy bar?

Picking up the bike tomorrow and I just know the wife is going to ask when we can change the seat for something more comfortable!

Any input would be great.

Cheers

Not that i know of Hammy. I think the OEM s/bar is just too narrow.
I have a Danny grey XL 2up Airhawk with a Ginz Sissy bar setup.
Cost me an arm and leg but worth itStock passenger seat-0.jpg
As you can see by the photo, I also extended the footpegs down and forward by around 100mm. this gets rid of the Cheltenham gold cup riding position.

Of course you need to shop around as usual but the Ginz bar setup is only from Ginz as a custom item.
Good luck mate.
Forgot to mention:~ anyone using this setup will need to attach the sissy bar mounts 90mm /3.5" to the rear of Ginz template to clear the passenger seat. (As in the pic)

If I was you I would't be attached to the oem sissy bar, it's pretty damn short, and you can buy other ones for about the same price and get something that's taller and will be more comfortable than the oem one, plus you won't have to drill into your fender like you do for the oem one, a lot of people regret (myself included) drilling into the fender to install the oem sissy bar.

To answer your question though, yes there are seats out there that will work with the oem sissy bar and if you do a search of the forum you will see different threads that discuss this, but with an aftermarket seat you're going to be able to see the sissy bar bolts because the passenger seats are not wide enough to cover them.

Sheet! Okay thanks for the info. Reason I asked is because the bike comes with the sissy bar already and wondered if I could change it. Hmmm might have to shop around a bit and see a) whats available and b) what she likes comfort wise.

Will do some trolling for options to see what's there but I have a feeling I might be digging in my pockets again real soon! *laughs*
