Alrighty, Let me first off start by saying i know there are going to be a few of you who may think I'm retarded and i shouldn't be doing this, but I'd like to see some other peoples views on it, so I'm letting you know, that i am well aware that some of you are going to flame me for this but life goes on.

Anyways, I have always wanted a shift seat on my fusion, but haven't gotten around to getting one, so i thought to myself, why not just turn my current fusion seat into something similar? I was thinking about take out my rear compartment box and using some metal as a support like the shift seats have. My one question is, is it really worth all the work to do this? Or would i be better off just buying a shift seat?


If i were to go the route of buying the shift seat, is it a direct bolt on? What would i need to do in order for it to work, and what would i need to do about the rear tail light?

A shift seat wont work unless its a 08.you need to use a 07 dragon seat or a rmk seat becaus of the difference in gas tanks.the dragon and rmk seat are a direct bolt on.

I just put an 08 dragon 700 seat on my 05 fusion 900, it was almost a direct bolt on the only mod ALL I had to do was notch the black plastis cover that goes at the rear of the seat a 1/4 inch because the heat exchanger stick up a bit on the fusion. And I had to drill holes for the metal support bracket, every thing at the front fits perfect, I like the dragon seat because it is not as wide as the the fusion seat. As far as the tail light went I got the whole plastic piece that covers the hoses at the rear for the tail light off of the same machine, same deal with it you have to notch it as well, the light plugs are different as well.

Ok so now i got that figured out, needing to use a shift seat and all, how do i go about getting one? I'm unsure if i can order one directly from my dealer or if id have to go to a scrap yard, or find one online used, or if i would have to order one directly from polaris.

a 2007 700 dragon seat fits up to the same fuel tank you have on your Fusion. Way easier job and it will look much cleaner.

The 08 seats fit aswell and is slightly wider than the 07. I have an 07 seat on mine and think its fine but others find the 07 seat too narrow.
