Default Are 48/72 seats interchangeable with the Iron/Nightster?

La Pera Bare Bones seat for 48/72
Do any of you know if it will work with an XLN?

La Pera basically states it as being for the 48/72 but I thought that the seats were practically interchangeable. But maybe not.

Techincally they should fit but since LePera denotes them being for the 48/72 you may want to give them a call and ask how it'll fit with the 3.3 tank, I'd imagine you'd be fine. If it all works out and you want to order the seat I found them online for $255 shipped.

I think I'm good in that regard, my rear fender doesn't have that huge hole in it. My model is a 2010.

yes they will fit, I had a stock 48 seat on mine...uncomfortable as heck and I kept sliding off
under heavy acceleration. The Lepera seat has a little more flip up in the back so you wont
have so much of a sliding off issue but it is not much more in the comfort department.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the info.
At least it looks nice.
