I would like to buy a used metal seat base, complete with latch mechanism, for my 2009 Prowler XTZ 1000.

Ebay, or Power sports nation!
Thanks. I had checked them (and others) before I posted here. With as many modified Prowlers as there are, I was hoping someone would have a used OEM seat base laying around, unwanted, in the corner of their shop and would sell it at less than a new one's price.

I am in no hurry. I will see if this post gets any results in the next few weeks and, if it doesn't, I will just buy a new one.

believe most that have switched seats to aftermarket re-use the base with the new seats .. there are a couple race only buggies here but most of those guys no longer post or are at best semi active ..

might look at some of the racer shops and contact them for their cast off's for the needed part ????????

Hard to believe they get 80.00 + for the seat base and latch! I have a seat base, but no latch! Not sure what shipping would run! 35.00 for the seat base, plus shipping. PM me if interested.

I appreciate the replies and suggestions. I now live in a rural county in NW Oklahoma. There are no race shops here. I don't think there is another Arctic Cat within 50 miles.

Arcticcatpartshouse.com has the base and latch assembly for $64, plus shipping, brand new.

I was hoping to get a used assembly for substantially less. I am going to abandon my project of using a seat base to build a rifle rack on and look at other options.

Thank you all!

At least parts are still out there! I think I'm going to inventory all of my spare stuff, then see what I can get by without!

Unreal how fast you get accumulate stuff! I'm in my Prowler for life! LOL, made a decision to buy stuff at every opportunity! No body panels except for the bolt on fenders! If the box gets totaled, I'm going with a flat bed! Might do that anyway!

I'm pretty sure the share the same part number. Making a gun rack out of one is a great idea! Let us know how it worked out.

Thank you VERY much!

I just bought it. I hope the 550 frame is the same as the 1000 frame. It sure looks like it.

I won't need the base pin, as my Prowler has it already.
You're Welcome, we like spending other people's money :D

I am glad that you missed that part...LOL.

It should not take too long to make what I think will work. Pic(s) will be posted.

The seat base arrived today. It is complete with the latch (as shown in the eBay photo). It was boxed securely.

It is going to take a while to get the rust off with a rotary wire brush before I can start adapting my two gun rifle stand to it. I will take regular photos along the way, documenting my progress (or lack of) and build a photobucket folder to view them in when I am done.
