    Newbie hello and all that good stuff ;) Need help please

    Hey all just saying hello ... I just purchased last week a 2015 C90T Boulevard to add to the garage... I bought A Suzuki Chrome Light bar Part 990A0-72008 which seems to be right for my Suzi Q ....but the fly in the ointment is a install pages they sent me are half blank ! Anyone can help me with this?? I am a gal... I do regular wrenching on my Yamaha Roadstar and know it fairly intimately....but this is a whole new learning curve... I did purchase the official Service Manual ....anyone needs a page scanned I will be happy to do so .... they are spendy manuals so I will be happy to share ....any way... I am very disappointed that I cant even find a seat or crash bar for my bike....just overpriced engine guards.... *sigh* Well thats it...Hello from an old blonde out west

    to the forums from Arkansas. I found the wiring instructions if that helps.

    "Wiring is pretty easy on the C90. You will find an extra unused 2 pin connector inside your headlight shell. This is for the OEM light bar to plug into. Just tie both your aux light power wires together and connect to the hot wire in that connector. The connector is fused and powered up when the key is turned on."

    Welcome to the forum.

    I suggest that you contact the place you purchased the light bar to get a better copy of the instructions. They might even be available online.

    Pretty much ALL accessories for bikes are overpriced......because there isn't much competition.

    As for seats, there should be lots of options there.....Mustang etc. or a true custom like Russell.
    Hopefully someone here can help with that.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    I agree, I think it's crazy what people will pay for an Ultimate. Another option would be to have your existing seat customized by a shop like Mean City Cycles.

    Thanks all for the info....there are no seats from anyone for the 2015...I found some custom seat makers that will use my existing seat pan. Light bar install begins saturdau...now if the rain would just stop I could go for a spin...

    OK well maybe some members here can help........to see if the seat (pan) for the '15 really is any different than other older models.
    Sometimes they are NOT but the seat makers just haven't verified that yet.

    A Suzuki dealer might be able to answer that too......with a possible reference to a parts catalog or two.

    It is different .... I have contacted all the seat sellers and Suzuki ... The fuel tank on the older models is under the seat ( I used to have a 2007 C90T ) the new models have a regular fuel tank and much larger frame.... it makes my Yamaha Roadstar look small! And the roadstar is not a small bike...I just looked at Mean City Cycles ...Thanks for that link Turboyoshi! I think I will send my seat to them ....looks good and priced right

    If you decide to go with Mean City, let us know how you like their work. I haven't had any issues with the stock seat, but most of my rides are under 2 hrs.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Regarding the crash bar, you could always look at having something custom-fabricated for you. I met a couple of gentlemen at a motorcycle show here in Atlanta a few weeks ago and inquired with them regarding custom fabrication of a few parts (I gave them detailed information) and was pleasantly surprised that the prices (for what I wanted, anyway) were about the same as buying a ready-made part that I didn't really want from an after-market parts supplier.

    The guy in the next booth could then triple-chrome it for me

    Anyway - it never hurts to ask and with custom fabrication you should be able to get exactly what you want. Good luck.
