    2012+ FZ seat back swap/ shave?

    About to pick up a 2016 FZS. I don't like the high seat back. I like the lower 09-11 style.

    so anyone want to trade front seats? Or whole seals for that matter if Fzr.

    and other question if anyone has shaved foam down and recovered how Hard was it to shave foam and look right?

    in general buying FZS for color combo, but have zero interest keeping it like that. Will be FZR seat set up, and hopefully the shorter seat back.

    Not sure what you are referring to. The fzs seat has not changed from 09-11 to newer models. I think what you mean is you like the fzr seat. You will need the fzr rear seat mount and trim piece, and rear seat. Remove tow hook and you will now have an fzr style seat

    No I understand a FZS rear seat and braket can be swapped for the FZR bracket and seat. Plan to do just that. As I like the FZR rear seat look.

    i am talking front seat change 12+ is different with the more defined /raised cup/ butt, seat back like a cruiser seat.

    Well now I see what you may be trying to tell me.

    the FZR Front seat changed in 2012... but the front seat for FZS did not it's still the lower profile. So don't have to worry about that part. Just need the FZR rear and order seat cover for older FZR. So it fits the older front, and FZR rear.
