Yeh I had the exact same problem as you can see from the link Hurley posted. I called called the company telling them I wanted a refund. They said I could either pay return shipping or wait for them to sell it to someone else in the U.S. Here I am 2 months later with no further contact. I have decided to have my welder trim the sides of the mounting tab of the tank to make it fit. Right now I'm wiating and hoping it's not a $300 boat anchor.

I wrote with "Eric" from motorcycle seats. I hope to hear from him soon- untill now he has been very helpfull but lets see...

Is your seat model also #4141? It dont fit at all... I tried taking the gas tank off and pushed it all the way forward- still dont fit!

Its a exspencive seat- and I only bought it because it would fit right on...

I can't seem to see what you did in the front? Another question :) - Did you buy a new rear fender or did you make it of the old one? I don't know why I ordered a black seat- yours look so much better :)

I hope this little picture will explain you a little bit more:

the rear fender is from a CX500 Custom, I have to give it it's new appearance end fittings and paint it to match the front ;)
it depends on the color scheme you choose, my wife was hoping I choose a black one but after seeing this one she's in love with! :p
