"98" seat on "89"?

281 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  gaswing
The title kind of tells the story. Will the seat of a "98" fit on an "89"? I just bought one and haven't picked it up yet. Does it sit differently?

Thanks in advance.

yes it will fit,

and you will greatly appreciate the extra leg room. Feet flat on the ground because it sits lower in the saddle,
That is what I thought. Thanks for the confirmation AZ.
Remember though that the '89 is a wider body (side covers buldge out more than later years) ... was the fat a change for the '95 styling? - I'm not certain...

Just mentioning it, the '98 seat will be shorter, but also a bit thinner in the nose, which may alow you to kinda "touch" the side panels when standing at a stoplight...

Sounds like a fun ride -- can't wait to see your photos there FeeB!
The saddle will fit perfectly Stan, the width change was only in the shape of the side panels.
