Can you modify a Vulcan seat to fit the Mean Streak? Apparently you can. While this mod is specifically to get a Vulcan Classic seat to fit a Mean Streak, perhaps it will help others make similar mods..
I want to document and share my steps in the conversation of a 2007 Vulcan Classic to my 2003 Mean Streak.
The first thing I had to fix was the tab on the Vulcan is quite a bit larger than the mean streak so I had to sand down and resize. I have not sanded down the bumpers. I might after I ride for a little while but as of now, no.
Secondly I needed to build new brackets. I started with a 6" hinge shaped and plastic coated the new brackets.
Thirdly I needed to create rear bumpers to remove seat flex.
The bumpers were purchased at Lowes but were too short. I had to extend them with rubber grommets.
And finally a 2003 Mean Streak with a solo seat.
