Can I snap the back seat back on after the tail cowl is installed? I like the sporty look when riding solo, but it would be nice to double up with the wifey on weekends.

Thanks for the help.

Just did it this afternoon. Even though she's got a GSX-R 600, she wanted to take a ride on the back of the SV. Go figure.

I'm about to mount a top case on another rear seat, that way I can (within 2 minutes) switch between; seat, cowl, top case.

Check your state laws -- in some states the grab rail is required as well as the seat itself. So if you swap the cowl for the seat, make sure you swap the grab rail back in there as well.

I did not remove the grab rail either, mainly because it is easy to grab getting the bike off an on the rear stand. So swapping the seat with the cowl takes seconds.
