Just joined the forum. Put 200 miles on the bike the second day I owned it.

2017 Versys 650 LT Larger Passenger Seat

Anyone know of a replacement seat that has a wider passenger area?

I rode my 2016 about the same mileage the second day! I couldn't wipe the smile off my face for hours! Where is the Skytracker from?

You will never see a motorcycle parked in front of a psychologist office!

The Sargent seat has a flat pillion, not sure if it's any wider.

I have a Corbin and I believe the rear seat is much wider than stock, and it improves the riders comfort immensely over stock. No more sliding into the tank. Have done a few 8 hour rides on it with no problems what-so-ever.

Thanks for all the responses! Came across a deal on a 2016 Versys 1000LT. Bought it for when the wife wants to go. More power and wider seat. Took some convincing to keep two bikes. I am looking for a wider and taller windshield. Getting some buffeting at 65-70. Kawasaki has released a touring windshield as an option for the 2018 1000LT. Says it will fit the 2017, but does not list the 2016 or 2015. I thought 2015-2018 were all the same. From Asheville, NC.
