Which Solo cowl?

I see there are several options to replace the rear seat and grab bar. Which ones are better.. or should I say, are there any ones to steer clear of for fit and finish?

The OEM solo seat is the best, they come in the color from your bike.

Yeah I have to admit at least for the Gen2, I definitely like the look of the oem Suzuki rear seat cover.

Re: Which Solo cowl?

Personally I like the way it looks without the grab bar. More sleek. Just my opinion tho.
