Re: easiest tail swap

I put a Y2k on with little or no modificastion needed. You have to get the 2000 riders seat but the pillion is the same, even the side bolts line up perfectly.

Re: easiest tail swap

Ah.... I didn't. I used Velcro strip to secure the pillion seat, but you might be able to cut the lock hole in the upper seat plastics and mount the lock mech. I never bothered as I always had a Givi box on the back and it covered the keyhole area.

Cheers

Re: easiest tail swap

Very nice!

I've been considdering a 954 or 1000 tail on my 929. I know the subframes are very different and modification would be needed but it helps that I have a friend that is a certified welder.

Plans to do this will be next winter.

Re: easiest tail swap

I just modified my stock tail and bought a new light. Cost me about $50 CDN total, but quite a bit of time. One of a kind tail though.
