Hi all,

I just bought a blue Raider, without the back seat.
Now there are already protection stickers and covers for the bolts, but that doesn't look nice at all.

So I'd like te buy a rear seat and mounting for the rear seat. Now I'm not sure which seat fits on my main seat and where I can order the mounts.

Off course I need shipping to Europe. The current saddle:

Just curious but do you plan to have a passenger and therefore need a passenger pillion? If you don't I need to tell you there is an option. I have a very close friend with a Raider-S and she replaced the passenger seat with a chrome rack that is designed to fit the same holes left behind from the removed seat. It's a Yammi accessory so perhaps your dealer can get it. But I can tell you, it looks great.

Pricey (about $190.00 US) but very nice:

I've already thought about this one as well.
The only issue is that the place "under the seat" had protection stickers as well. I think when I remove them I will remove the paint as well.

She either removed that clear tape or it wasn't noticeable with the rack mounted over it. If I had to bet money, she removed it. It would help if the tape got warmed up with a hair dryer at one inconspicuous corner, start to lift it with a fingernail or carefully with a razor blade or very sharp knife. Any residue left behind can get cleaned off easily with WD-40 or any goo remover. Perhaps search this forum or other forums for answers, I'm sure somebody out there has done it and not took the paint off with it.

So the double seat and the mounting has been ordered. Waiting for delivery now.

Just ordered the customdynamics integrated tail light as well.
After that maybe the lowering kit.

Problem is that I need to pay shipment costs to Europe every time.
