Seat swap/conversion, can it be done
« on: April 13, 2021, 04:43:52 am »
Hi all, a pre purchase question if I can...

In the UK we have the XV950R and the XV950 racer
I believe these are the Bolt R spec and Bolt C spec, respectively

I would like to know:
can I change the seat and handlebars of the XV950 Racer to the ones on the XV950R

Or is that a big/complicated job :-\
Your advice and comments would be greatly appreciated

Definitely can change the seat if you grab the mounting hardware with it. Not sure on the handlebars.
