Looking for Factory Driver & Passenger Seat

The '06 LT I bought has the most uncomfortable aftermarket seat you could design.
Going to replace with KonTour, but as we know--gotta ship factory seats to them, so if anyone wants to sell their factory driver or passenger seats--or both...let me know. This is literally a pain.

Re: Looking for Factory Driver & Passenger Seat

CB,
I have a set of brand new, never unwrapped, heated rider and pax "comfort" seats (2005+) for sale, but I suspect you are looking for old seats just to fill in whilst yours are being rebuilt, correct?

Re: Looking for Factory Driver & Passenger Seat

No. KonTour requires the seats you send them must be unaltered. So that knocks out the seats I have on the bike now. I can't send those to Kontour. I will have to go with unmodified seats. They can be new or used, but not modified. So I am definitely interested.

Rider and pax are both OEM BMW "comfort" seats, black, heated, and never unwrapped.

Re: Looking for Factory Driver & Passenger Seat

Should you still require rider and passenger OEM seats from an 06, let me know.
