Aftermarket Seats

Ebay has Racing Seats for about $250 for a pair. They look pretty decent. They are supposedly universal. I thought about mounting the universal seat bracket to my stock seat bases. They actually look pretty cool. I am sure the quality is nothing like Twisted Stitch or Beard ETC. But for the Money I am almost willing to give them a shot. I can get them vinyl covered so alitlle water from the hose from clean up shouldn't be an issue.

Thanks in advance AXO

More than likely 'universal' applies to cars and trucks...i think the seat itself is too wide for the Teryx. We tried this in a buddy's rzr once and they were nowhere near fitting, but The teryx might be different...I have a set of PRP seats in my teryx, i believe they're all over ebay if you search 'Kawasaki Teryx Seat' Theyre around $300 or $400 a pair. Night and day difference over the stockers, and I'm sure the more expensive seats are even better.

I just installed a set of JAZ products highback racing seats with covers that I bought new unused at a car show yesterday, they are a pretty good fit. Summit sells them and the covers. , Summit also sells their own poly seats for about 40 bucks, worth a look. I got a deal on the JAZ, paid 100 bucks for the pair with the covers, the covers were still in the box, and I got all the mounting hardware (sliders) too.

these are the seats I have Baja SS
they look to be about the same size as the ones you are looking at.
they are much bigger then stock but they can fit. I mounted them on stock seat bases first then later made my own lower ones. they will not fit with most after market doors so just an FYI

here are a few old pics with my old cage and no doors but it gives you a good idea of the size.



this is the old base next to the new one so you can see the hight difference. My guess is the seats your looking at sit a few inches higher then mine also.

Really not trying to sound like a smart a** but I just built them from metal. Basically built seat rails then used some 1.5" .120" wall tube and flatten it in a press to slide into the rear hangers the made front mounts to bolt them in because I do not trust the factory latch in a hard roll. Oh and FYI I am 100% sure those seats wont fit with a stock cage.
