Re: Which seats fit?
The fairing lip has been trimmed down to the point of about 1/4" left (the part on both sides below the driver seat) to allow seat to be set lower than factory low setting. I did not know this was done (PO did a good job) when I purchased bike.
With this said and the fact that I use the seat in the raised position most of the time, will the 05 fit or is it still a compromise?
The steel cross piece that goes under seat from one rail to other has also been removed.
I found this out after looking at another LT at a later date..
I was intending to purchase a 05 seat I found in adds and ship to Ron from point of purchase, then have finished seat shipped to just across border UPS store in NY state.
BUT I need to know for sure that it will fit??
