  • Interchangeable years for seats

    Hello everyone,

    I got a really nice Katana this weekend and got her in my garage now. The solo seat is on it right now with a cover thats not removeable. He crimped the metal around the old seat. Any one know the years that are interchangable with seats?

    Thanks for your help!

    88-97 600s only for 600s
    89-97 750s only for 750s
    98+ fits any 98+

    Other years I don't know, and you didn't specify what yours was. Might wanna update the garage to say....

      I assume pre-600.

          Don't the posts have the banana seat? The cowl should be covering the rear section of the seat.

            yes the seat is under the cowl
            the cowl can come off
            any 98+ seat will work
            so many roads so little time

                      thanks guys for the comments.

                      I am from ONTARIO.

                      Ya, I fell in love with this bike and if i were to tell you how much i paid, most would be envious.

                      Actually, the cowl has been attached by taking L brackets that would usually be screwed in and crimping it to the seat. Its permenately attached unless I wanted to break the metal.

                          Ha ha....

                          you should just pick up the cowl for a hundred bucks or so. Actually, I know someone who might sell the cowl for probably 120US if your interested.

                          Let me know if your interested.

                          I love the look of the cowl, its just when i want to have a passanger, I want to be able ot com pletely replace my seat and cowl. Hence, I am going to buy a full replacement seat.

                          Thanks,

                          brandon

                          OKAY ... FOR sale is one primed solo seat cowl like mine.

                          I am selling it for a friend for 120 US obo shipping included to most places. Please pm me if you are interested.
