    It seems that my XS2 seat does not have holes to fix the rear handle ... What is only on the xs1 & B ?
    Thanks

    No. My 1972 xs2 seat does have 2 bolt threaded bolt holes at the rear of the seat underneath. I bought a Mikes xs replacement seat as mine was beyound repair and it too came with the same bolt holes. I bought the grab and bolts and seat from them. Very happy with all of it.

    Thanks for your answer.., I guess I'll buy one from Mike (after having mine redone...) but if you look around it seems that the handle is not always on the XS2, a lot of them seems to have an early TX650 seat like mine.

    Good point. I am not sure how the TX is different. Mine is a XS2, red and white, totally stock and both the original seat and the Mikes replecement seat have the holes to bolt the grab bar to. The replacement seat was a dead on match. Looks great. My original seat had rusted out in the pan and although looked ok was just waiting to fall apart.

    Just ordered one ... My xs2 looks like completely original but... The seat is more TX, the carbs XS1, and more than I am discovering ad I'll go along!
