WTB: RC51 rear seat

I know alot of you guys ride solo , but my girl needs/wants to ride with me. Does anyone have that rear seat cowl for passengers ? Nothing on ebay, looked through our rc pics, and no-bodyyy has the cowl on, soo somebody might want to part with it. Ill pay for shipping and give you some $$ if needed for the part. My girl thanks you !!

Re: WTB: RC51 rear seat

Is $40 unreasonable? Otherwise, I guess check eBay.

Re: WTB: RC51 rear seat

does anyone have much experience with a BSR on the RC?

a fellow rider of mine says the RC being, of course, built and designed to be a 'rider's bike' probably wouldnt hold up very well with a BSR for lengthy amounts of time. he seems to think the subframe is simply not designed to hold up under that stress.

i am pretty much torn between an RSV Mille or the RC51 for my next purchase, and i suppose i just want to know if anyone has had a pillion rider for any length of time??

(my wife sometimes likes to hop on board and jaunt to a cafe, etc.)

Re: WTB: RC51 rear seat

In 2002+ they downsized the rear subframe, and to me (not having seen one in person) that one may not be very good for supporting a passenger. The one on my 2000 model, same as the 2001, seems to be pretty stout. I wouldn't have an issue carrying a passenger.

Re: WTB: RC51 rear seat

yeah, i guess that's pretty much my question

ive seen the difference in subframes and was wondering if the 'lighter duty' subframe was safe for pillion riders? or, more importantly, is a pillion rider going to flex or tweak the 'lighter duty' subframe?
