    New V2

    Hello, Does anyone have a new V2 they can post a pic of the under side of the seat and where it mounts on the bike?  I have a 2020 950S and looking to add the V2 seat.  It looks like all the part numbers match up and the body panels just below the seat should bolt right on.  I just dont know how the seat locks in.  Thanks for your help!

    The 950/950S have bolts on each side of the seat .... the V2/V2S does not.
    Kind Regards,

    Yes, I am aware of that.  The subframe is identical, same part number and everything.  Just trying to decide if worth the cost to make the change.  Thanks.

    The riders seat has "dogs" that push into "holes" at the "tank". There is no locking device for the rider seat.
    It is held in place simply by the pillion seat overlap.

    The pillion seat has dogs that  push into slots at the tail, first
    The pillion seat overlaps the rider seat.
    The pillion seat has a pin that pushes vertically down into a conventional hole with the key lock mechanism.
    It needs a really good push over the pin to make it engage.

    When I got my 950S seat rebuilt, the guy forgot to put the bolts back in the rider's seat.  I hope to get them off him if I head that way, but for the last 10,000 kms, I haven't needed them, as posted, the seat just locks in anyway.
    Itís later than you think.
