Just got one. look nice but it did not fit.
The bracket at the rear with the hole for the bushing and bolt was a least 3/8" ( about 9mm) too long and would not go under the frame bracket without having to force it like crazy. once underneath the frame, the seat bracket would not align with the threaded hole. I could have sent it back but decide to modify it instead. I drilled out the bracket 2 rivets as well than some of the rivets holding the cover at the back in order to access the back of the seat pan.
Removed the bracket and drilled 2 new holes at a different location in order to move the bracket in by about 3/8". Used 6mm bolts and nuts instead of rivets on the bracket. Riveted the cover back on and voila.
Contacted Saddleman . Let see what they have to say
I shop Revzilla a lot, but I'm in the US and they have been great for returns. I would expect the 30 day to start when you receive the product, but I haven't read the details of the policy. Still, a phone call explaining the situation couldn't hurt. I guess if you have already modified it, that would be a deal breaker.Hello, just got my Saddlemen gp1 seat and it did not fit...ordered from revzilla.com as they were the only one that would ship to Norway... . The bracket in the back for te fastening bolt was way too long. Removed it and made new holes and riveted it back on. Now i can get te seat to fit the bike, but no way in **** I'll get the passenger seat/cover back on. The Saddlemen seat is way higher than the original and makes it impossible to slip the passenger seat/cover into its lock... anyone experienced similar issues??
Tried to contact revzilla but they say 30day return policy.. and Thats less than just shipping time to norway.....
I've tried to push it all i could towards the tank, but still i'm missing 2-3cm to get the passenger seet past the other.I had to really force mine towards the front of the bike to get it to fit. I think there is just more/thicker material where the seat meets the tank and it fits tighter. I suspect if you just work with it and push on it hard enough it will fit. Subsequent fittings are a little easier.
