    Sure will. For now I can tell you it's a very comfortable garage / man cave seat!

    I bought one for my Venture two years ago. I've had very little snow to use it, but the few times I did I really liked it. The taller seating position made it much easier for me to control my sled. I also installed some bar risers and longer cables. IIRC, for the choke cable I used a Yamaha MM cable.

    Love the taller riding position. Not at all crazy about the big gap at the gas tank. Seems like for $500plus dollars it would fit better. I myself had plans of buying almost exactly the same seat, until I heard about the fitment. Boss should do better.

    The seat isn't properly mounted yet. it was just thrown on there, sat on a about 50 times and pictures taken.... Doesn't represent any kind of proper fitment

    That's good that it wasn't mounted yet. I knew that they are a bit loose around the tank, but that looked really loose. I would love to see it after mounting.

    Default Got to pay if you want to play!

    Spent a small fortune and alot of time on my sled in the last few weeks. Ripped out my skid, shimed and lubricated all bushings and grease points, new sliders etc.... Ripped the entire front suspension and steering apart, and replaced every tie rod, collar, bushing on everything, and install a new set of gas shocks. Dumped the old gas, filled with fresh high test. Replaced the antifreeze, installed new drive belt new plugs, and replaced my pull chord.
    Replaced my rusty exhaust headers, replaced all seals, and repainted the entire exhaust system. Just need to properly install my boss seat now....
