Have a second hand xt 225 that sat in my barn for a couple years. Now Ifind myself retired with more time and I want to get it rolling again.

first question where can i find which parts are used for which years. For example my seat was chewed up by mice . I see that a member has a 2006 seat for sale. How do I find out if it will fit correctly?

Welcome to the site as a new USER. Enjoy and ride safely. First it would help to know what year the bike is. Yamaha's OEM parts link is HERE. The part number for a 2006 XT225 double seat assembly is 4JG-24730-60-00. The OEM site searches by year, model and diagram. The Seat diagram is the one you'll want. Once you know the year you can look up the part number to see if it matches. If so, the used 2006 seat will fit fine. Not rocket science. Good luck and post on!

Welcome! I use Ron Ayers or Bike Bandit for OEM parts fiche. Those and Google will usually tell the tale. In general, 96-07 models are nearly identical mechanically.

Thanks for the help. the bike is a 1997 The mice in the barn apparently thought the bike would be better with most of the foam chewed out of the seat.

Glad to assist. Yea those little rodent bastards can do a lot of destruction. We use Victory traps with American cheese and Tom Cat bate blocks. Keeps rodents under control. They seem to like soft materials like foam and rubber.

It sounds like you have the perfect opportunity to get a Seat Concepts kit, with a new cover and foam. Improve comfort and fix your seat all at once.

Seat Concepts usually has a sale around Thanksgiving. 20% off, if I remember correctly.

I went the SC route several years ago, and have been satisfied. I wouldn't want to do an Iron Butt ride, but it's a significant improvement over the OEM seat, at a reasonable price.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

I had a local auto upholstery shop re-cover my seat a few days ago. They did a great job and it cost $80. The seams were split nearly half the length of the seat but foam was still in decent shape.
