    RSVR 2004 single seat conversion

    I'd like to convert my Gen. 2 RSVR to single seat. I understand that this is likely to mean a different subframe. Something like the Jester version would be great but I know they don't do Gen 2.
    Any tips on what I should be looking for for a road bike? Not competent at anything more than basic home maintenance so a seat and subframe ready to plug straight in that would take all the usual electrical gubbins including lights would be ideal but prepared to go 'Daytime Use Only' , if necessary.Happy to get it painted so it looks more OE. Saw an ad last night on one of the forums where a racer was breaking a Gen.2 RSV but cannot find that this morning. She had such a seat and subframe!
    Thanks to you all.

    Why not just use a gen2 race seat probably the easiest option

    Or adapt rsv4 subframe and seat unit?

    Yes, indeed. Thank you. Me got end up more trouble than it's worth given that I'll have to remove seat to get at the ECU etc but how often does that happen! Going to have a look at the prepainted Chinese kits and see if they do seats separately. Cheers.
