Just bought a 01 929 seat cowl for my 00???

Well, I finally found one on e-bay and won it. Come to find out I didnt do my homework first and find out it needs modifications to fit. Is there anywhere I can buy the bracket alone? Also I need to repaint the cowl for the 00 color.

Anyone that has an 00 cowl and want to trade me?

Don't worry the 01 will fit fine, rigging it up is easy try it like this just a piece of flat bar and some spacers a little drilling and your done like dinner....

Good heads-up on that one. I myself never knew the 00-01 was different...=-)

so yours is a 2000 with a 2001 cowl? the 2001 seat bracket looks just like the one in your pic. both years use the same part.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Seat cowl is from a 2001 but the bracket is only a piece of aluminum flat bar and some spacers I had kicking around literally took me 30 min. to fab up and fit.

Just took a little time to space out the cowl so it didn't rub on the cowling on the up swing......

the mounting bracket on the cowl is a bit bigger than the 00's needed. About 1/2 inch longer then needed. Plus the color is way off
