I am on the hunt for a used in good condition seat pan (plastic) for my 1995 Triumph Thunderbird 900. There is nothing wrong with my current seat other than at the front the curvature is to low and I want to raise the seat up so that I sit somewhat higher. Don't want to destroy the seat I have. If the fabric is ratty that's OK as I will have it recovered. I will p[ay the shipping via parcel post.

Yes, I keep looking on eBay and seats do come up, prices are stupid and I only want the pan!

Any chance of finding one in a local junkyard?

I am not aware of any breakers here in Western Canada! But your thought is a good one and I appreciate the thought

An update on my search for a used seat pan! Found one on eBay that was raggedy on the sea cover but the seat. So to those who responded, thank you for reaching out with your thoughts and wisdom!

Just an up-date in looking for a seat pan! Watched several sits on e-Bay and got one out of California from the Moro guys and arrived earlier today and I couldn’t be more pleased. the seat cover was ratty which I knew, but the pan was in better condition than my original one. Just another thing to do this winter in rebuilding the seat base to take the god awful driver dip!

Let’s see if I can down load some photos. The seat pan fits perfectly and I know where I can get a perfectly matching seat cover with the Triumph imprint on the rear tail.

First time back in awhile. I have a Sprint, Adventurer, and Legend. Acknowledging understanding a need for just a pan for my 90’ BMW K75. People want $150+ and the pans aren’t in that good of shape. Like my X75, if it’s say Hurricane like a classic BMW K bike it at least double priced.
