    Woody99 - I looked at the Max BMW Parts Fiche for seat parts. It seems that there are a bunch of parts on your bike which essentially substitute for the front of the pillion seat on a non-RTP bike. Here's a photo of the parts:

    Undoubtedly you're familiar with them. As I recall from my now-gone 2008 RT, the key to the bike was inserted to the rear of the pillion seat. I guess the job would entail replacing some body parts, etc. to replicate the RT seat situation. Here's a link to the RT-P seat diagram:

    Looks like you'd have to get rid of the radio box, get a pillion seat, and find a way to secure it. Seems like a lot of work.
