Motorcycle Seats 101: Seat Fitment 101

Print this page

If you have concerns about replacing your original motorcycle seat, rest easy. It’s a relatively simple process and you don’t have to be a trained mechanic to perform the switch-out. In most cases, it’s a simple matter of unscrewing a rear mounting bolt and disconnecting the nose (front) of the seat that nestles up to the gas tank. As you lift up slightly on the back of the seat, pulling the seat toward the back, off it comes.

And you can be sure that makers of aftermarket seats are very careful to build replacement seats that use stock mounting points. It’s in their best interest to make the installation as easy as possible for the customer. If different hardware is needed for mounting the new seat, it should be included with the new seat.

Any quality replacement seat comes with mounting instructions — not that any of us think we need written instructions. But, for example, if you have a one-piece stock seat and you’re replacing it with a two-piece aftermarket seat, the instructions will take you through the process of mounting both seats. As long as you purchase a replacement seat that is specifically made for the exact make, model and year of your bike, there’s no need to worry about fitment.
