Anybody out there know if it is poosible to put a seat off of a 2004 back Rubicon on a 2004 back Foreman 450?? I know that the latches are different. I saw that on the schematics for them. I'm not really fond of the seat and it looks like the Rubicon seat would be more comfortable.
Thanks,
Fore-Man

Honda Mechanic,

Duct tape
That fixes everything
I drove an old truck when I was in High School with duct tape rocker panels. It was great. We could go 4-wheeling and was it off in the car was, let it dry, and apply new rocker panels.

Here is a couple of pictures and measurements of a Rubicon seat and TRX450 seat .. They wouldn't be a matter of just swapping seats but it could be done .. (we had an old TRX300 in last summer with a big Polaris 700 seat made to fit)

between the plastic posts: 450 approx. 7" ..500 approx. 10 1/4"

from the front hook to the post 450 approx. 11" .. 500 approx. 16"

from front hook to lock 450 approx. 12 1/4" .. 500 approx. 13 1/3"

overall width 450 approx. 14 1/4" .. 500 approx. 17"

click on the thumbnails ...

THE SEAT WITH THE MUD IS THE 450 SEAT...

HONDA MECHANIC, YOU DA MAN!!!
I really appreciate the work you do. Although that is not the answer I had hoped for, I n=knew that is what you would tell me. I couldn't get any dealers here to tell me anything except "you can always buy one and try it"
Thanks again man,
Fore-Man
