    FZR / FZS - What are the differences? Can one be converted to the other?

    I've only heard that one has a tow hook and a different rear seat? Are there more differences? Can the rear seat of an fzs fit an FZR if you wanted it to be a legal 3 seater for a day?

    FZR has tow hooks. Generally it's just the third seat and step ladder on the new ones.

    From my understanding, yes you can make a FZR into a FZS (or visa versa), but you would need to buy a few things. 1) the seat, 2) the plastic trim, 3) tow hook hardware. So it's a few parts that you would need to purchase and bolt on. Then I guess you'd have to remove the 2-seater sticker.

    The FZS has the tow hook, not the FZR.

    I was looking at modifying the rear plastic cover so it had a gap so you could fit the tow hook without having to buy the seat and back cover, has anyone else done this? If you cut out exactly where item 44 points to i think you could fit the tow hook??

    I cut a shape like this out of mine l_l I haven't used the tow hook yet, cause I did it end of season, it does not look the greatest to the perfectionist. I think I can put up with it. I can take a pic, tomorrow if you want me to.

    Hey Flip,

    What parts did you need? The plastic assembly and the rear seat only? Is the install easy?

    Can you please link me to where you bought the parts?

    Thanks!

    Just #6 and #48 on the microfiche?
