1+1 into a single seat?

Picking up my MV F4S 750 tomorrow. It is a 1+1 not sure I like the rear pegs and seat. It is a good price so I am going for it.

Is it easy to take the rear pegs off, does iot look ok? What about the seat? Are there covers made or do I have to invest in a new rear seat unit?

Cheers

Welcome and congrats on the new MV.

The pegs come off very easly. All you have to do is unscrew the 4 "bolts"? (sorry i can't remember if thisi is the correct the word in english, righ now) and take them off.
As for the seat, i don't know if there are covers made but i think the seat is very well integrated on the tail section. But of course, if you want a mono........

FWIW, I believe there are different tail sections (rear subframe and bodywork, seat bump pad) between the 1+1 and mono. There are people who have converted. but as you can imagine, pieces aren't cheap.

For some reason on the solo i bought, i have the subframe for a 1+1, as well as the yellow shock that i have been told only comes on the 1+1. So i am not sure what happen when they were putting everything together they included a few 1+1 pieces, but the subframe for a 1+1 will work for a solo tail section. if you need some pics let me know and i will send them your way. Hope this helps

Then, that really sounds as though you have a 1+1 with a monoposto tail fitted, and the pegs removed. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

yep. i noticed that when we went riding that day. makes it easy on you if you ever want to go biposto. you'll just be short the tailsection, seat, and pegs.

best of both worlds

I have a 1+1 with a mono tail section the looks are great, plus I have the choice of putting my standard two seater and take my wife for a ride. Its the best of both worlds.[IMG]dsc00008.bmp[/IMG] [IMG]dsc00021.bmp[/IMG]

Thanks y'all, I would be interested in any pictures people have of the 1+1 conversion to a single seat version, please email me etc.

I am looking at purchasing the single seat in the UK, any ideas where Emoto Parts do one, I like the idea of the best of both worlds, as I prefer the lines of the single seat.
