Default 2018 Custom seat fitment

Hi all!

My wife has a 2018 1200 Custom, she wanted a solo seat so I bought one on eBay off a 2015 Iron...it doesnt seem to fit?
The tongue of the seat doesnt seem to fit under the tank?
Most sites say 2010-2018 on fitment for aftermarket seats..Should it fit?

Thanks in advance!

The custom and the superlow have the larger 4.5 gallon tank. The seats from the bikes with small tanks will not fit without cutting the nose off of the seat. I had to trim mine when i put the 4.5g tank on my roadster.

Have you considered taking a look at Mean City Cycles to see if they can modify the eBay seat for you at a reasonable cost? They do really good work. I've had two touring seats worked by them and was very pleased with the workmanship.

Its a stock iron 883 seat. Probably not worth the effort or money to modify it. And owning one, I can say their not that comfortable.
