Default Seat cowls

straight forward question alert....

looking at the bike below in the for sale section...am I right in assuming that the pillion seat is just under the cowl and that it just needs the rear pegs fitting back on??

no the seat cowl is a replacment for the seat check with the seller and make sure he has the seat and yes the rear footpegs just need putting back on, also check he/she has them.

cheers

cheers, I did think the cowl looked a little low profile to be covering a decent seat

Seat cowel is a bit of a misnomer really. All that I know of actually clip on in place of the seat (or you get an unopening hump to replace the rear plastics such as race fairings) you can still use the storage, but need to seat as well is you ever want to take a pillion.

well the question has been asked, I assume you could purchase an aftermarket pillion seat and pegs easily enough, just needs taking into account when settling on a purchase price

wouldn't dare buy a bike that the wifey couldn't join me on, it's been hard enough work trying to convince her to let me buy another

well the actual bike that raised the question in the first place does indeed come with the original seat/pegs etc, but its useful to know for other bikes I look at

You can get black leather pillion seats for the SV650/1000 on eBay, they are under 50 I believe, but then if seller doesn't have the pillion foot rests then your looking at another 40 most likely. Depends if you are going to have a pillion though obv......

Just had a look the cheapest seat I could find was 32.50 inc Postage.

eBay Item No. 110476104701

If you didnt want the seat cowl though you could sell that for 30 - 40 so it would sort of be a swap money wise.

Good Luck!
