    OEM Seat questions

    First question, is the seat assembly the same for all years?
    I have a 1998 with a blue seat and was looking at some OEM parts suppliers and found the entire seat assembly for a 2010 for $116.99. After seeing some trashed used ones on ebay for $150.00 I was thinking why not buy an entire new assembly for that price.
    Second question, if all seats are interchangeable does one of the newer years have a blue color or blue/black seat color.
    Thanks for the help

    I'm not sure where you found a whole seat assy for that price...normally just a seat cover through Yamaha is around $140. Did you check the foam and seat cover in the classifieds right now off a 2014 for $50?

    Yes there are a few years that have blue and black seats but I don't know which specifically. Do a google search for TW's and view images. You'll see them.

    I'm 95% sure that the seats are identical in terms of seat pan / attachment points. Colors you will have to work out using the web or ?? Tom

    I'm looking on Cheap Cycle Parts and they show the 2012 semi double seat assembly for $113.87, it is number 1 and shows a circle around all the parts for that price, that seems like a steal to me.
    Other info I found on the web said 2008-2014 for that part number though, didn't know what made them different.

    If you are going to pay $150... Seat Concepts has foam and a cover [use your original seat pan] for you to use as a DIY project. I have heard enough good reviews for them that I am going to put one on Junior. The colors are limited, however. I know the Seat Concepts is probably $160 + shipping if I remember right. I'm just tossing this out there is all.

    If you are going to spend money on your seat I would suggest you consider the Seat Concepts kit.....hands down a huge improvement over stock and well worth the extra cash.
    The flatter/wider shape stops you from constantly sliding forward and will allow you ride in comfort much longer.....and it looks pretty good also.

    My mistake. I see the price you said.
