It is not a direct bolt on. Of course, you can hack just about anything but the end result may not be acceptable.

I hacked an 1800 seat onto the pan of my 1200, I loved it, if I can find a good seat from an 1800 at a price I like I will grab it and put it on my 1500 I have now

For me the gl1800 seat is about the most uncomfortable seat I have sat on. The gl1500 is like sitting on a pillow and I can do 800 mile days and never think about my butt.
