Hi I changed my standard seat as I liked the look of the new set and wanted to add a pillion seat so my partner could come along as well, I got this set from Royal Enfield zone but when I went to fit it found that the rear bracket for the rear seat didn't attach to anything I ended up buying a "lycette" style seat and used the bracket from that on the rear seat and it all worked well. I was lucky in that one of my Indian staff at work sourced it all and had friends bring it over so all up for the 3 seats it was under A$100Here is the seats when I first tried to fit them, as you can see the rear bracket goes no whereThen after I fitted the Lycette bracket and finished the job, I do want to jack up the back of the front seat though as it does tend to feel like you are sitting "uphill"I have only ridden about 120km in one go on the seat so far but it is surprisingly comfortable
I am looking for a replacement solo seat for a C5. There are a few I've seen, that will specifically fit on a C-5, but its extremely difficult to find any pictures of the seat on it. I am aware of the "large American" leather solo seat on Hitchcocks; Delux Solo Seat on Nfield Gear; and a few on e-bay. I would rather not spend the money and find out 1) it doesn't really fit or 2) that I dont care for the way it looks. I would really appreciate if anyone has purchased a replacement solo seat for a C5....would you be so kind as to post some pics with a description of the seat, any mounting problems, price, and where it was purchased. Thanks in advance!
RE dealers in the US have two new custom single C5 seats. An added bonus is that they lower the seat 2.5-3.5 inches depending upon model. (This is not our lowering kit)Click here: http://nfieldgear.com/enfield-store/perewitz-s-premium-low-seats.html
Thanks for the heads up on the website. We have lots of them in stock.
