    seat question

    do the 1200's and 1300's have the same seat? I'm thinking of putting a custom 1200 seat on a 2008 gp 1300.

    your 08 seat is narrower than the 1200 seat.

    because the foam is contoured differently or because the whole seat frame is narrow?

    I`m pretty sure there`s more foam on the sides where your legs are making it wider...

    The 2000-2002 1200 seats have more foam on the sides than the 2003-2008 seats... You can trim it, If you check out Steach's conversion thread he trimmed his 1200 seat..

    I'm having Jettrim do a custom seat cover for me. They say they found a GP1200 seat in the junkyard. I really just want to know if the seat harness will line up and fit correctly. I assume they will redo the foam and the rest anayway. Otherwise I need to send in my seat and it will cost more in shipping than getting the used seat out of the junkyard.
    Will it snap in ok?

    they both fit each other but i would stay with the 08 seat as it weighs less

    The Answer is...

    My friend brought over his 2000 GP1200 Seat and we put it on my 2008 GP1300.
    It snapped right in and fit as good as the original.
    I didn't notice any weight difference.
    Attached are some photos.
