After aging out of my VTX 1300 and my GoldWing 1500, I have just purchased a 2002 Swing 600. I can tell immediately that I need to adjust the seat back for more room.
I have read a lot of the posts here on the subject, but I am looking for more specific help on how to make the modifications and where to get the necessary parts. Specifically some photos would help.

Thanks

Jeff

Remove butt-bump, install inexpensive sheepskin from equine supply shop, not motorcycle supply house. Paul

Thank for the reply. I cannot see the photos. Also I am so new that I cannot PM you with my email.

Welcome aboard the board Jeff. How about some context regarding what you're needing/looking for.

How tall are you?
Do you require a backrest?
Are you long legged or short torsoed?
Budget? (we can always help you spend your money ...)

Tim, I-pad? Was just trying to get them from the computer. I am challenged. I e-mailed them to Jeff. Thanks for your concern Tim. Paul

 Okay. I edited out the hiccups.

Here is a link to JeffR’s (our dear leader) tutorial on how to add a photo to a post.

Welcome Jeff! You are now on the "scooter" side. I am 6'0" and removed my buttrest long ago. Bought a kit to convert it to a backrest. Works fine. Need to do the same thing on my Forza next spring. Good luck.
