    Is there any difference between the low seat pan and the high seat pan?

    Yes there is. Either can be fitted to the same bike/frame/tank but the hardware to do so is totally different.

    Generally, the factory low seat is a lift off seat that comes down on both sides of the frame so that the battery cover panels are not able to be used. It also uses the tank pad which makes the seat itself shorter.

    The standard seat is a hinged seat and only comes down to the frame rails so the battery covers can be used. The seat's nose extends all the way to the tank with no tank pad.

    The pans are entirely different. The latching mechanisms are different. With all the orrect parts, you can convert either direction. Usually, the most economical way is to trade all the pieces with someone who wants to go the other way.

    I got a 'low seat' from a eBay seller. Part # 52 53 2 308 113. Doesn't fit the frame or the latch. Back to square A.

    See post #2. I said "the hardware is totally different." I meant the hardware is totally different. If you removed the tall seat hardware and installed the clips on the tank, the tank surround, and the latching hardware for the low seat it would fit perfectly. If not - it won't even come close.

    The low seats are easier to find and cost less than the standard seats, in my searching.

    Seats are easy to find. Mounting hardware not so much.

    I will have to get a stock seat that fits. Then my seat pro will rebuild it to work for me. He can also adjust the coverage, height, width and shape. The Corbin I have is excellent in build, BUT it weighs 14 lbs. and it's wide for me. The wide width essentially makes it taller. I don't need taller but shorter. As far as the easy approach of getting a 'low seat', the dimensions are different. I don't want to add the big rubber cover on the tank and sides. Looking to trade or sell it. I put an advert in the Marketplace here. The low seat is 22" front to back. The Corbin which fits, is 27" front to back.
