LT seat different years.

Will an '06 seat ( Sargent ) fit my '02?

Re: LT seat different years.

It will bolt up to the hinge OK. The issue is where the base rests on the rear seat pan. The older bikes had a wider "bit" (the metal part on each side near the back of the seat) compared to the narrower one on the 05 and up. Also the plastic on the bottom of the seat pan may not clear the tupperwear under the seat. (you can trim the plastic of the seat pan or the tupperware to make it fit).

All bets are off if the Seargent seat was not built on a stock seat pan. My post is only good for stock seat pans.
