919 Seat Compatibility

Hello!

New to the forum and just picked up my 02 919 - love it!!

As one post said a while back, the 919 seat crushes one's jewels. I'm ultimately going to get a corbin or sargent but wondering (randomly) if a 2005 919 seat will fit on a 2002?

Thanks!

It'll fit, it's exactly the same except for the fold out hooks they added to the later seat pan

It'll fit, but I don't think the 05 seat will be any better than the 02... unless you send it out to Sargent.

and also the revised perch under the buddy seat area that sits far back on the spine of the rear frame extension - which is why the Power Commander installations are wrong for the later seats, as where they say to put the PC is exactly where the perch is. (that is unless the PC install instructions have been updated but I'll bet they haven't been.
Regardless, early and later seats fit all 919s.

Well that explains why I couldn't get the stock seat back on with the PCIII installed

Will the VFR seat work on the 919 the look the exact same. I've been looking to replace mine and the only thing I can find online is one for a VFR.

Someone sent their's in to a custom shop and they fix some of these things. It's not that expensive and a quick turn around. Search around, it's a common problem.

yeah, I got it done by a shop, inserted gel padding in the seat, re-upholstered it with gripper material and flattened out the front section next to the groin, to make it more comfortable.

It looks great in stock form. Corbin is too chunky and ruins the lines of the rear of the bike, in my opinion.

I paid 350CAD total. with gel insert and the new upholstery.

Damn that looks great!! I think I'm going to see if i can find a shop in town then. I have to agree I dont likr the looks of the Corbin either cause it does ruin the lines of the bike.

I had problems sliding around on my stock seat plus the vinyl was getting sun hard in spots. To get a shop to customize and re-cover seat meant an expensive and time consuming shipment of seat since I live in a remote place. So I re-covered the seat myself.
I brought a cover from an eBay seller, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/13249163958
, a polish company. Wijalis. Got myself a staple gun and had a go myself. I'm very happy with the new cover but not entirely happy with my work. The new seat is great. Very grippy, I no longer slide forward or back. I did not add a gel pad the new cover is quite thick and has a 5mm foam layer underneath making it softer than the stock.

I had mine sent to Wijalis too
They did everything
Gel pad and some mods being done
Quite pleased, and much better than original seat
