    1998 Polaris SLXH 1050 Seat

    I just bought a 1998 Polaris SLXH 1050, and both the seats are destroyed, as in there is no saving them. All of the plastic underneath has been beat to crap. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement seat? I would even take a single seat from one of the later model 99-later SLX seats. I have searched ebay, craigslist, and I have called about 20 different places all over the country and have not had any luck. Thanks guys.

    Whats the purpose of the two piece seat I never understood it? I see SLX seats pop up from time to time. Just need to watch out for the cracks.

    I believe the point was To gain access to the storage bucket much like the virage. So you didn't have to remove the seat. And they realized that it failed so they changed it. To something else thay fails.... Ha.

    They got it right on the Virage seat. I have had no issues with the hinged rear seat section. Use it multiple times on every ride.

    Genesis rear seat is similar to Virage, if not exactly the same.

    Yes they did a good job on those seats. But the fell far short on quality of the pro/slx seat.

    I think I have devised a very good fix for the SLX seats.
