K1200LT seats difference between 2003 and 2005

Is it reasonable to think that a 2005 seat will fit on a 2003 LT? they sure look the same.

Thanks for your thoughts.

'05 and later are different seats. They made them a little narrower so riders could reach the ground easier.
When I switched my 2002 Russell made seat onto my 2007, I had to use Dremel tool somewhat to allow it to snap down.

Do a search on this site for more info.

I ran a 2003 seat on my 05 while the original seat was off being re-done. It fit but there was a large gap underneath. You may have to trim the tupperware edges to get the clearance or cut into the seat pan going the other way.
