If you mean the latching hooks.... they are not listed as a replacement part... they come with the seat...

I ordered a saddlemen seat a few years ago that did not come with the hardward (latches). I used the latches from my stock seat when I installed it. I sold my stock seat a few weeks ago and now the man wants latches too. I've heard there is a man here called The Wizard that can possibly help out with this latch problem.

Bummer
Tell the guy latches can't be had thru normal resources...  was the same thing the C10 had issues with... they were never available..
You can ask Wizard, but I pretty much think he wont have any, he deals in C10 stuff, not C14..
Best of luck in your search.

Wow.....I don't want to bother anybody. Just thought the latches could be found or purchased much easier than this. Well, thank you for the info MOB. If anyone has ideas please let me know!

Has anyone got any information on how to get the standard mounting hardware for a C14 seat?

Get in touch  with KMAN311
He makes them.  :great:
I got all 3 pieces from him.
Not a factory but good enough to hold my seat.
Good Luck. :motonoises:

I have an extra 08 seat that I never opened the box   I will check if it has hardware

I still have seat brackets. Send me a PM with your address and I can send you a set.

I got two sets from KMAN and he delivered them straight away.  They work great.  Note: he sends them at no cost, but you can and should make a small donation to his goodness...
Cheers!
