Seat required, at least the base...

Postby pae » Fri Feb 23, 2007 1:22 pm

As it says, Seat needed, dont mind if cover and foam are no good. The seat pan/base on its own would be OK as I can work with that. Mine is a little bit rotten, as you can see...

Can anyone help?

Hi Phil. yeah - looks terminal! Mine was a base from a CB 550 that had been re-covered at some point. Loads of rivets and self tappers. Foam had been butchered too to acomodate a rider of shorter stature than myself? Anyway - I looked at a few seats - look at my post (when is a CB 650 seat....) for the history of my seat buying. I even bought a seat that was advertised as a CB 650 - looked the part etc - etc - and WAS a seat for a CB 650, except it was for a US one. So the rear light cluster wouldnt fit. The rerason for this post is not to say "i have one" :( But to say that the e-bay market is a bit hit and miss and in the end afte spending out loads, I bit the bullet and bought a dave silver one - which I am well happy with!
:D :D

I wonder if a CX500 seat will fit? I think the 650Z and the CX500 share the same tail light assy, and maybe the seat pan are the same as well?

Same thought occured to me. Remember when I was looking at CX 500 grab rails? Wasn't there an issue with width though? The frame of a 500 is radically different to that of a CB - I tell you what is handy though. have you noticed that the CX's tail light unit is incorporated into the rear mudguard? Very handy if you don't want chrome! can't remember which forum member had all the part numbers. maybe the seats can be cross referenced?

I can't say if the with will be a problem, but it looks like the CX and the 650 seat are using the same hinges.

Hi. The link wont work - but im assuming its the dave Silver replacement seat at £80? Yeah, thats the one I have. You are right. The seat looks a bit naked without the chrome strip - but to tell you the honest truth, I was so glad to get one that fits, Iv forgotten all about it! Oh while I'm on, my Honda CB250RS has the little honda logo'd mudflap too. :D

Just got a photo of the underside from the seller of this CX500 seat ... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=004&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=140091275653&rd=1&rd=1 but it doesn't look like my one. Shame, as I'd grab it at that price.
