My '03 also has one set. I believe they went to two sets on the '04.

well... my '03 had the two hook set (4 hooks) with the sideways entry for the owners manual pouch and the pedestal under the passenger section for extra support against the frame I assume so the seat pan doesn't crack under your passenger. Incidentally, the PC3 install instructions show them mounting the PC3 right where the seat pedestal sits.

PICS:

Seat on left came on my '03. Seat on right I got off eBay and I sent to Sargent for recover.



Where I mount the PC3 instead.


My guess, my seat was switched at the dealership. Maybe the seat I bought on eBay was the original off my bike? It looked new and completely clean except for a small hole punched in the top. Most likely a showroom floor incident. It was the perfect candidate for a Sargent recover, that's for sure.
