Will 600 seat fit on 650 ?

Just a simple question... will a seat from a 1984 KLR600 fit on a 2000 KLR650 ?

That's '84 600 vs. 2000 650 .

(I asked some other people and they kept missing either the difference in years or the difference in engine size. I never got a straight answer.)

If it won't fit then can I get a list of seats that will? Thanks for any help guys. I just want to buy a backup seat that I can modify, but I want to keep the original too.

The 600 and 650 are essentially the same frame but I'm not sure if the seat would fit. There are plenty of 650 (1987-2010) seats around for cheap so why would you want to use a 600 seat?

Well, I don't need the seat foam or vynl. All I want is the plastic base that locks onto the KLR frame. I found one of those for $10.00. I want to buy it if it will fit, then I can build my own seat on top of it. I haven't seen KLR-650 seats of any year or in any condition below $75.00.

So do you think the '84 KLR600 base will work?

The mounting points may be the same but I think the shape is different because the 600 and a smaller tank than the 650. For 10 bucks it's worth a shot.
