C5

Kevin

Have you received any pillion seats for the new C5 in America ?

They were advertised as a optional extra in the UK but to date they have not arrived.

Thanks

Keith

Or a luggage rack? :D

Hello C5 owners

Just had the pillion seat fitted - nice piece of kit - looks the biz and really well made.

Happy riding

Hey Keith welcome to the board

can you upload some photos? I love the look of my C5 and the solo seat, however practically a pillion would be handy so I'm interested to see how she looks

Cheers!

I just went to GV Bikes and asked if there was any info on the pillion. He had one last week, and I saw a pic but it was a very dark b&w. It bolts to the bracket under the solo seat, also onto the frame where the shocks are, and suspends over the fender without attaching to it or requiring any new holes drilled.

Looked good from what I could see. Bit pricey though, 120+ shipping and tax so roughly 150 plus installation if you chose not to do it yourself

he also had the fact sheet for the "sports exhaust" which is the upswept deal in the photos of the bikes before they were on sale.

86 pounds + VAT but Im not sure if thats all you need to have the upswept exhaust or if you need brackets and stuff too.. Also if its back to the new emissions BS does that mean it's still robbing horse power like the standard one?
