C14 Seat Question
« on: November 05, 2017, 03:24:27 pm »
Hi guys, would anyone know if the seat pans for the '06-'10 ZX14 Ninja and the '12 C-14 are the same?  I've been riding my new (to me) 2012 C14 for the past few weeks and the seat is very uncomfortable.  I checked the part number on the seat (53066-0161) and it is for the aforementioned Ninja.  The correct part number for my year C14 is 53066-0251.  I plan on sending the seat pan to someone for a new seat but want to make sure I have the right pan to start one - thoughts?  I'm thinking it's the same since it fits the C14 (although tightly) but I don't want to make a mistake.  Thanks in advance.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams

First of all, the 08-current model C14 seats are all interchangeable.   I know for sure that the 07-11 ZX-14 seats are also interchangeable with the C14.  I'm not sure about the GEN2 (i.e. 2012+) ZX-14R seats.  I think they are the same also but I have not tried it myself.
