OEM Passenger Backrest

Post by eastkytriker »



Need some help here. I have a 1990 Goldwing 1500 SE and l want to replace the entire seat with a OEM seat and passenger backrest that fits 98-2000. Dimensions are 17 1/2" wide. Are all gl 1500s the same width between rear speaker housing?
Thanks in advance.

yes, it does.

I ordered up a '98SE seat to put on my '94SE and it fit perfect.

Those extra wide "wings" on the lower half will just curve forwards on the bike and provide a hair more support for co-rider at the sides. It'll work fine.
