Thumbs up sp1/2 seat

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum so I will introduce myself soon!
This has probably been posted before but can't seem to find it, Just wanted to know if the SP1/Sp2 seat and rear end will fit to the VTR1000f (Firehawk) subframe? any help would be greatly appreciated.

Small world! How long have you had your Storm? Any pics?

As for the tail piece, never heard of anyone fitting an SP1/2 unit. R1 tail has been transplanted

If you want a more sportier seat , check out cliby's post 11

The seat is from Mario Nava in Italy

Yeah I know what you mean mate I live down the road in Stowmarket. Cheers for the links - very helpful.
I have had my Bike for 3 Days! Now stripped in my garage with a few special parts on order, it was a bit of a dog when i got it but was cheap. Wanted a winter project so going to do lots of the work myself and hopefully should be ready and looking nice for next year!

It's been done a couple of times...

It seems the easiest way is to get a SP subframe and make two plates to adapt the holes for the frame mounts... Doing it the other way means custom making all mounts/lock for the seats...

Cheers Tweety, I have got my eye on a Duke 916 rear end now seen as i am going to have to change the subframe might as well go for something different?!

Heh... a 916 rear end is one of the few that haven't been done yet as far as I know... Go for it!

But I still can't figure out why people change them... That's one thing on my bike that stays as stock... (I gotta have some parts stock so I can still call it a VTR... )

The rear end of the SH looks weird IMO, especially the seat.

Not when you have the cowl on there...

Admittedly I rarely see the rear end of mine... I just like it to look nice for all others...

I quite like the rear end on the SH but i bought one which needs replacing, as this is my winter project i thought i would try something a bit different, and I love the old skool look of the Duke rear end!
