quick release seat pins?

anyone know where i can find or order them?

The stock seat bolt hole is very easily stripped out, and rather than heli-coil it I would rather have the quick release pins, but just don't know where to get them.

This is for my 08, but i assume they are all the same.

Re: quick release seat pins?

bump! for wanting to know myself. i hope someone makes the pins. i have the sato quick release tank pins, so if i can get the pins for the seat then that would make it easy to lift the tank up and take the seat off

Re: quick release seat pins?

I'm thinking that since the stock bolts are recessed, you'd have to have a very oddly shaped clip.

Re: quick release seat pins?

They're called PIP pins. Try these guys.

P.S. McMaster-Carr has them too. See quick-release pins.

Ive seen pins like that in a few paintball markers. Maybe try a paintball supplier.

Re: quick release seat pins?

I used to sell them for Gen I Busa's on another site. They were stainless steel. I would buy them from MSC online. I would also sell the lanyards with them.
However, when the Gen II bike came out, they did not work anymore. And I know on my 06 750 gixx, they wont work. The pin would need 2 different size diameters on it.

Btw, I would use a 1/4" diam. pin and just drill out the threads on the seat bracket with a 1/4" bit. HTH's

Re: quick release seat pins?

pin does not need two different diameters, just have to drill out the seat bolt holes in the frame to accept the pin.
