1300 vs 1200 Seat Questions
I purchased what was identified as a 1300 seat on ebay. However, what I received was definitely not the seat pictured in the ad. The seat pictured had a small hole in the left rear and the seat I received has no hole. I can't seem to find a part number anywhere. Does anyone have any pics that would help me prove it's not a 1300 seat?
I was under the impression that the 1300 seat weighed less, too. The ebay seat came in at 15 lbs and my '02 1200 seat weighed 16 lbs with an extra Jetrim cover. How much should a 1300 seat weigh?

From what I remember the 1200r seat was 10lbs heavier than the 1300r's seat.
If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for that seat on ebay ?
That brings me to the next question, since you seam to have 2 15lbs seats you want to sell one ??

WHAT COLOR IS IT. I BELIEVE THEY ARE ALL THE SAME. I HAVE 3 SEATS. ONE A SILVER OFF A 2000 1200R, ONE A SILVER OFF A 2005 1300R, AND A BLUE ONE FROM AN 03 1300R. THEY ALL WEIGH THE SAME TO ME.

SMW, except for color, you say your seats are all the same? They weigh the same? I thought the 1300 seats had a more narrow shape and were lighter. Also, the part number is different between a blue 2002 seat and a blue 2003 seat. There must be some difference.
The seat I bought is blue. My plan is to cover it with an all-black carbon fiber looking Jettrim cover to go with new '05 black side panels and glove box. Then, I'll be selling this seat in my pic with the medium-slip gray and black carbon Jettrim cover. I didn't want to rip all the staples out since it's in perfect condition.

The 1300 seat is narrower and shape slightly different

I almost bidded on that seat. I have seen it list on ebay a few times, same seat with hole in it. I just thought it didn't sell. He is probably using the same pic for all his ads. The 1200 seat is suppose to be wider and shaped a little different on top. But it looks like the aftermarket people are selling the same covers for the 1200 and 1300.

I THINK THE PART NUMBERS MAY BE DIFFERENT BECAUSE OF THE DIFFERENT SHADE OF BLUE FOR THE COVERS. OR ARE THEY THE SAME BLUE. THE 05 SEAT MIGHT BE A TAD SMALLER BUT THEY ALL INTERCHANGE NO PROBLEM ON MY SKI'S. I SWEAR THEY ARE ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME

I read an article that talked about the seat and the difference talked about is they reshaped the foam in the seating area in the new seats.

Yes, the seats are different, and the 1300 weighs less.
