Curious about design of under the pillion seat
« on: June 11, 2013, 04:39:49 am »
Looks like there was clear intent for specific items to be held in place under the pillion seat.   I know a lock was intended to sit in there.... What else?   

Just curious

I have only seen under the seat of an SE model, and it has the toolkit, the space for the lock, and a small waterproof compartment. On non-SEs I believe there is a bigger storage space as the audio is not there.

I am planning in fitting the main unit of a CB radio under the seat, but looks like I may have to take out the small storage box.  I will find out exactly when I get my SE later in the year.

saaz,

Your CB unit will have to be very small- the "pocket" is basically a tray. I have managed to stuff the toolkit in there to free up space at the back. I am not sure what you will be left with if you try to remove this tray as it sits on top of the SE audio module.

I keep spare bulbs in the teeny tray of my SE.

The space should be enough, as at the moment the CB unit is in the tail of the ST11 along with the cruise control module, vacuum module and the autocom.  I may even be able to squeeze it in and keep the waterproof container.

Me too its a good place for the bulbs and not much use for any thing else. Where the lock if purchased should fit I have my AutoCom & bike to bike radio all fits rather nicely  :062:

I don't keep anything in the tray.  I always have my top box and panniers which have plenty of room and are much easier to access.

That's good to hear as I thought there might be enough room. Tyre repair kit and slime pump may squeeze in other places other than the panniers.
