Default Need help with seat conversion

I'm tired of the bannana seat. Actually I want to throw up when I look at it.
So, I'm in the market for parts. I've got the list and realize I'm too lazy right now to piece things together.
I'm wondering if any of you ladies or gentleman already have most of the stuff for the conversion and just didn't have time/money/patience to do it.
I'm looking for whatever you have.
I live in NJ so if there's anyone close, I would prefer to pick up items but I'm not too picky on that.
I've got an 06 yellow F4i. Color matching isn't necessary because this will be a winter project and I'm gonna take my time with it.

Good thing color matching isn't necessary, because it wont happen anyways lol. You've only got a few colors to choose from for plastics and none of them will match your bike. You will also have to do something about the black frame, since yours is silver. But there's nothing hard about this swap, I did it within a few days.. totally worth it.

Good luck w/ your project. Its very straight-forward & easy to do.

BTW, there's absolutely NO need to strip the black paint off the split-seat subframe. When I did the conversion, I left my subframe black & it looks just fine.

If you need any help, please don't hesitate to shoot me an email...& I'll help any way I can.

Good luck.

thanks guys. I went to the dealership for ****s n giggs today to get prices. the subframe is something I'll probably get brand new just because I don't want a tweeked one and I don't think I'll have anyone honest enough to tell me if the one I'm getting from them was damaged.
I'm pretty mechanically inclined. I just need the parts now, lol.
