Default The right spring soloseat kit for sporster 2004 xl1?

Hi there folks!

I am looking for tips on the right spring soloseat kit to fit this Sporster. The papers says it is a 2004 modell, but it might be a 2003.

Thanks
Vegas

That's not an '04, it's an '03: completely different.

You could try Licks. I'm sure others will suggest other sources.

Basically it involves a hinge to support the front of the seat, and springs to support the rear. The hinge and the spring stantions are welded to the frame. Or were you looking for a non weld solution?

Thanks Folkie. For me it would be best to avoid the flamethrower. So another solution would be better. Thanks for the answers!!

PM'd you. I got a solution but it involves welding , very simple and cost is about 15 American dollars. I can fabricate (check me out "fabricate" ) and send you a front mount like mine and send it to you at no charge, but someone would need to weld two mounting studs for the springs on the rear. PM me back if interested....I'll also be posting a thread on this after I finsih it up this weekend.

But yours is a rubber mount, and he has a solid mount.
