F650Gs Single/Solo Seat

Hope this is the correct place to post this question....

I recently purchased a solo seat off of craigslist for my wife's 2003 F650Gs. The seat is in 2 pieces (The stowage box and the seat). It looks as if these were attached with screws. However, mine are missing the screws. even so, it appears that with the screws, it doesn't look like they would be adequate to mate the two parts together in a secure fashion. I am wondering if there is a bracket or something that securely holds the 2 parts together.

This may sound confusing. I will try and post a picture later.

If needed, maybe soemone could post a picture of the underside of thier solo seat for comparison.

Here is a link to the seat I am talking about.

Thansk for the link.

Looking through that, I still don't see how the seat is attached to the box. I believe have all those parts, except for the bolts with the 3 hole plate/bracket... Although, I may have that installed as part of the latch. I dunno. This helps alot though.

Thanks,

If you don't have one, get one. Nice seat! Does need the install kit though. You can't in 5 minutes go back and forth with the stock seat and the solo seat. Maybe 20 minutes.
