Does anyone know if the single seat is lower, higher or the same compared to the stock double seat?
And how does it feel, softer, harder or the same?

Same position (for me who sits close to the tank) but the feel is different. I find the single seat surface more slippery hence slightly less pleasant... I guess this quit personal. But it looks pretty cool and I put the single seat occasionally, take 10 sec to change.

And to give a complete answer I did not notice a real difference in terms of softer or harder. If I had to chose I would say single seat is slightly harder.

Is it possible to fit the solo seat after removing the rear subframe? How does the motorbike look? I am interested in a lower solo seat without the rear subframe but do not know how to make this configuration work.

Did anyone purchase the aftermarket double seat? My problem with the stock one is, that it is small for taking a passenger.

Removing the rear sub-frame may be more effort than it's worth. I can't see a way of doing so besides permanently chopping off the rear.

at 4:00 the guy from JvB says that it's easy to un-install it, just a couple of screws
It is easy to take off,six allen screws and it's off.... but it also supports the rear mud guard (two allen screws) so unless your doing away with the mudguard you can't really take it off without bracing it.

As was said already, removing the subframe takes 5 minutes. It's really just 4 screwes for subframe and 4 for fender.
I just removed it, waiting for single seat and some custom tail.
Just a pity i didnt wait before, already had evotech tail tidy and i won't use it anymore :)

That's why i hung back on ordering the evotech tail tidy, i was all set to order it but i want the single seat and it just won't look right with the rear mudguard.... so it'll be coming off along with the rear subframe, and as i'm a fair weather rider.... spray won't be an issue:grin2:
