Im kicking around the idea of going with a solo seat on my 03, I have searched this forum with little luck on any *How toos* and the pictures are few and far between. I have a spare seat I was considering butchering it into a solo, if its possible to make this happen. If your running a SOLO seat can you throw some pics up and a how too if possible?? thanks!!!

check out Bitchin Seats, They recently did a seat for an Aussie forum member (BWDS I think), and I've been speaking with them regarding a custom one off jobbie for myself. Great craftsmanship and customer service.

I like Bretts (BWDs) seat but I was more leaning to ditch that whole back pad piece altogether> kind of like the rocker look was what Id be looking for. I seen a member with one on his DX that he chopped out of his stock seat pad?

I just popped back over to edit my post.... I know the seats in the pix aren't true solo seats, but he has done them and still does, I just can not find a pix. You should send them an email asking for pix.

Your bike will look like shit if you ditch the passenger piece, you have the TSM under there and your rear fender is not cut correctly for that. Pull you passenger pillon off and you will see what I mean.

that big block thing with 2 3/8" nuts that hold it on? I was going to ask if that can be relocated also.

Yes you can relocate it, some have put it in the airbox. With a solo you will be able to see the flat mounting area of your rear fender as well.

The owner of Bitchin was one of the original designers of the VRSC seats. He is well aware of the ECM and other goodies under there so his seats come with a "do-dad" to keep that crap hidden. Wish I could find those damn pix!

Right, I agree, but you cannot switch to a solo and still cover up the flat spot on the rear fender where the TSM use to be.
