What To Know About Installing An ATV Passenger Seat

  • Most ATV passenger seats are “universal fit” meaning they fit almost all models of ATVs.
  • You will need to have an already installed rack to secure the seat.
  • Hard ATV seats are secured with U-bolts fastened to the rack.
  • If you do plan on carrying a passenger, you will also want to install passenger foot pegs for passenger comfort and stability (not included with the seat).
  • Most hard ATV storage box seats will require you to drill holes in the box in order to secure it to your rack.
  • Soft seats don’t require drilling and are secured with straps.
  • Make sure your ATV is large enough to handle the additional weight.
  • Carrying a passenger can interfere with center of gravity, balance and operation, so it is not recommended for aggressive riding.
  • Youth operators should never carry minor aged passengers.
  • Some states legally require ATVs to be specifically labeled by the manufacturer as safe/approved for passengers. This is why most ATV seat manufacturers state “not for use when riding” – liability protection.
  • You need to be aware of legality and safety issues prior to installation.
  • A comfortable seat is always nice to have for camping, relaxing and long rides when you need a break.
