I took of my rear seat to put my things in it i would need for work.I started the bike to let it warm up,and after running a little late I ran out of the house and forgot that i did not secure my passenger seat and took off.40 minutes later i get at work,get off of my bike and see that i did not have my passenger seat-WTF-:hammer .Has this happened to any of you,and where can i get a new one at a good price?.

It almost happened to me once. I usually tug at the rear seat or cowl as I start to leave my block just to be sure...

I setup mine so it would not lock into place.Sometime last week took the girl for a ride and the seat flew off with her on it.I have not heard from here since and things are much better now.

ive came close to loosing mine, while i was ridding i felt something loose behind me i stuck one had behind me and felt it moving around lol, i ended up grabbing it slowing down and took my fist and hit it really hard and it locked in place. The rear seat's are about $150 bucks new, good luck.

Yeah, I've noticed that the second seat and seat cowl are tough to lock in-I've never had that problem with any of my other bikes before; And I thought my 03 CBR 600RR didn't have any compartment space- I'm surprised that the OEM tool kit fits in my 1000. Any ideas how to make the seat/cowl fit without having to "hammer" down on them?

I will sell you mine. I have an '03 and the seat is still in the plastic bag. No one rides except me.

It happened to me too!!!

Then two weeks later after ordering a new seat from suzuki, I went home and realized I also lost my wife. Luckily they always have them in stock.

Would an '05 GIXXER 1K seat fit an '03? Just curious...Sometimes parts like this are not changed to save money. If it will fit, I'll sell you mine for the price of the shipping.
