    Question about FZR/S rear seat differences..

    I was looking at the OEM parts finder on Riva because I'd like to swap out my FZS seat for an FZR seat. I don't ride 3 up so it's not really needed and I prefer the FZR look to the FZS but it will be nice to have the FZS style for any possible future needs.

    The question I have is with the seat and trim/grab handle differences, etc. I know the top piece will need to be replaced but I'm not quite sure about that bottom piece. Is it the same on both models or will it work with a tow hook in place? I'm assuming they're the same peice short of one molded to allow for a tow hook but I'm just not sure here. I wouldn't want to order an item that I don't need or not order an item that I need so a little light here would be helpful.

    I figured one of you guys would know right off so it doesn't hurt to ask...

    Thanks in advance!

    Yup, I've seen guys swap out seats before on the FZS for the FZR look. The entire rear grab handle and rear seat will need to be replaced. In fact, I would try to find someone willing to swap parts with you as it will be a lot cheeper than buying new. You will loose the tow hook with the FZR grab handle, but it can modified to fit.
