Arrow Third (middle) seat help

Finally , after a month and a half of waiting my rzr should be home in 2 weeks. I'm wondering if anyone has purchased and used the third seat from rzr giant...
RZR/RZR-S/XP/RZR4 Center Seat - Orange/Black *NEW!*

If so, how does it work ? I for sure would get the harness with it. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Todd

I created a tread already on it. Mine works perfect. Search rzrgiant.com

We have some trails around the house and my little girl seat is perfect. She seems really secure

Re: Third (middle) seat help

We like ours real well, too. Bolts right in, though I trimmed the plastic around the mounting locations a bit to ease the operation. We use the Crow Y Harness.

Re: Third (middle) seat help

Purchased rzr giant seat also Looks great and really like the harness. Now installed I can not secure my stock seat belt into buckle. New seat is almost sitting on buckles. Anyone have this problem? Do they only work with full harness in driver and passenger seat? Anything I am missing?

Re: Third (middle) seat help

Its tight in there but it will go in. It actually kind of does. I'm thinking about getting harnessed as well.

Re: Third (middle) seat help

We are using stock belts for now and they do work but it is tight.

Re: Third (middle) seat help

sorry for digging an old thread up, but has anyone made like a quick release type mount for these seats? I would think servicing would be a pain, or if you had to get to the engine panel at a ride, you would have to take the seat completely off, and It just seems like it would be a bitch to get to...

Re: Third (middle) seat help

Two bolts and a strap and it's out. Indeed, it adds to the effort related to accessing the belt and motor, but after a few times, its not that bad. I have thought about welding a captured nut system. That would greatly simplify it. I'm sure a quick release system could be created; it just taking the time to do it.

Re: Third (middle) seat help

I was thinking some kind of spring loaded pin system would make it a breeze, kinda like they use on trailer gates but smaller

Third (middle) seat help

Can search my posts for a thread on a DIY foot rest that fits in the cup holder. Honestly my son was not very comfortable in the center seat, but we realized it was because his feet were dangling and nothing to push him back or absorb any bounces. A must do item IMO. good luck !

Re: Third (middle) seat help

And you definitely want to cut 1" holes in the plastic on both sides of the seat near the mount so you can reach a ratchet straight through. Would be a huge PITA (pain in the ...) without doing that.

Only other thing is to be aware of how far forward or back your seats are. I tend to like my seat a little more forward, but I leave it almost all the way back because it is better for giving the middle seat more room.
