08 Varadero Seat
« on: January 06, 2022, 21:20:23 »
Hello all, new user on here. I have recently acquired an 08 Varadero that is in need of some repair and TLC. I am tackling this project on a tight budget but have already acquired most of the main parts I need for the rebuild/repair, with the exception of the seat. I have seen quiet a few used seats from Europe on E bay but they all seem to be for older models - pre 2008. So my question is does anyone know what the main differences are between the 2 seat versions? Could an older seat be modified to fit the 08 model, if so what all is involved? Alternatively does anyone have an 08 or later spare seat that they would be willing to part with? Any condition considered. Many thanks in advance!

Hello and thanks for the prompt response. Yes I am aware that the seat changed somewhere around the 2007 2008 model. What I am wanting to know is how much of a change? Could an 06 seat for example be re-worked to fit an 08 model? How big are the differences between them? Thanks again
