Hi everyone. Just ordered an OEM Gel Solo Seat off the internet for my new Speedmaster 2012/13 (arriving next Monday). When i popped in to the dealer this morning he said that there isn't a solo gel seat for the SM anymore. Else where on the site i've seen conflicting ideas about this.

Has anybody fitted an OEM Solo Gel Seat (A9708171) to a 2012SM?

Thanks

Gordon

Which seat is that?

my dealer didn't even know that the America seat fit the speedmaster. i had to insist to try it and it worked. but i also asked other places and it just seems they don't know or try even. i called BC and they weren't sure either but they offered to give me no hassle on a return if it didn't fit.

My dealer has also told me that the Solo Seats available won't fit the 2012 Speedmaster and Triumph has yet to release any plans to make one for new models. Not sure why though.

@CA_NJ_USA & CrazyTrain - please update this forum thread if/when you get the seat from BC -- let me know if it does fit without any problems on your new bike. Please post pics too if you can. I'd like to buy one, but am hesitant as everyone has told me it just won't fit.

I'll update this post once the bike arrives and the seat is changed (or not).

The seat on my ride is the Maverick LowRider.. They have had a lot of good reviews through owners forums etc. for both comfort and style.
In addition to the rider seat there is also a pillion pad, I have a double thick pad which I had to order.
These seats fit all, including the 2012 models. Some triumph dealers seem to be misleading buyers regarding the seat fittings etc on the new models.. Perhaps because they don't know themselves..

You own the business, so of course you'd say that

I'd feel much more comfortable buying from you if you can provide me a real customer reference of someone who has fitted your seats on a 2012 Speedmaster. I'm definitely interested, but need to some assurance.

I agree they don't know and they don't take the few minutes to see either lol

I got the america seat after going to dealer and swapping it before i bought it to confirm it fitted first.

sorry i didn't get the solo or gel seat. but the 2012 america did fit my 2012 SM.

Hi Chris,
I understand where you are coming from about seat fitment and comfort. It is a very individual issue.
I know cross referencing owner forums is sometimes frowned upon but there are a lot of comments and reviews on the Maverick products at bonnevilleamerica.com, Just search the forums for Maverick seats or lowrider. The seat reviews include comments on comfort, looks, quality, and fitting..
For obvious reasons I won't give any customer details to anyone, but there are plenty of discussions on the net.. Fitting has been cross referenced for 2011 & 2012 models, customers have purchased to fit these and I have had no complaints at all, in fact quite the opposite.
Don't believe everything the dealer tells you.. you bought Triumph not Harley..
