    Yes you can. You will need the FZR rear seat and the FZR rear grab handle. I see a lot of guys on here doing trades... maybe someone is interested in your parts.

    I've done this deal several times with members here with great success. Just post up that you are looking to trade and post up some good pics of your rear seat and upper grab handle.

    Make sure to setup a UPS account online to get a much cheaper postage rate.

    Yes, the 2012 seats themselves are different but the upper bracket is the same. 2009-2011 are all interchangeable.

You should find someone with that seat and ride with it first (not just sit on it in the showroom) to see how you like it. I often ride sitting back more, so that pad really gets in the way.

    I tried a friends FZR and i like the seat a lot more. It actually was a lot more comfortable and kept me snug on right corners. I guess if i look into purchasing it, i will have to order it in and then sell my fzs seat. Don't want to be without a seat and not ride for a week or two.

    Dude I would think you should be able to trade somebody as most people are going the other way; that is they actually would prefer to have the FZS seat for passengers...
