888 single seat.........

Can anyone help?
I am looking to change my 900SS for an 888. I am having a look at a '94 Strada at the weekend and was wondering if it's possible to fit an SP single seat without having to change the sub frame?
The seat will cost enough money without having to find a sub frame too.
Cheers...........

Dave,

There are single seat pattern coppies that you can fit to the Strada. I found a painted carbon one the other day if you're not committed to the Gen SP route already.

I'll dig out the phone number if you're interested.

Rgds,

Rob

Thanks Rob,
If you've got a phone number I'd appreciate it.........
Would you happen to know whether my rearsets from the 900ss would fit on the 888?
I would (obviously) like an SP but they are few and far between, and big bucks when available.....
Dave.

Dave,
the footpegs on my girlfriend's carbed 750ss and my (1992) 851 & (1993) 888 all have 70mm between the mounting bolts, so should bolt on ok.
The main difference I can see is that the 851 & 888 ones are more angled.

Hope that this helps

Paul

If I find one I'd probably buy it.

Im after this info also !! Ive heard diffeent stories from different people...some say you have to sut the subframe, soome say you dont. Im not going to bother if I have to cut the frame. BTW..aberdeen m/c's sent me a picture of that single seat and its been chopped about (looks like a superlight/ss seat now!) so I wouldnt bother..

Let us both know chaps if you can shed any light on the single seat fitment to stradas..cheers !!

Hmm,just raiding my memory banks here.
I seem to remember the SP seat will go onto the Strada subframe but the mounting points are differant.You will have to make some sort of bracket up to support it.You also lose the underseat storage.
