Which passenger seat to buy????

Just got a 2012 Sportsman 500 HO and I'm looking to put a seat on the back for the Mrs. Looking for something easily removable for when I don't need it on. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum. I have a jobber 2up seat/box(not sure of the name)on mine. I found that it really doesn't matter what seat you get just use the Lock and Ride plugs made for the Sportsman. Very simple and so slick to use. It take seconds to remove the seat or install. I will add a link here as there are some for sale on ebay. Hope the link works.

Call Thor at the ATV Superstore (815-321-3888). Not all seats are comfortable and he knows which ones are best in each price range. Best wishes!

I got my lock and ride from Thor. I haven't had the wifey on it yet but she said it comfy sitting in the garage. I just put on my heavy duty springs tonight so I'm pretty much set now.

I have the same machine and bought the Coleman brand bags/seat combination from Cabelas atv catalog for $150, comes in camo or black. It is good canvass and straps on pretty easily and is not to cumbersome. It also has a zipper along the back side that holds a cover for the atv that fits perfect over the 2012 sportsman 500 , it has elastic around the edge that holds it on very well . Good luck with the new toy - I'm enjoying the heck out of mine .

I have a 2012 500 HO and i'm in Canada as well. I Bought mine from Thor (theatvsuperstore) he ships the seat from the factory which is in canada so there are no surprise duties or taxes, my local ATV dealer in town wanted $420 for the seat plus tax, then i needed to find my own way to mount it...
Thor sells the seat for $366.99 including shipping, and it includes the lock and ride mounts so i can take my seat off in literally 30 seconds.
I am glad i didn't buy my seat anywhere else... The Wes industries seat is VERY comfortable and the nicest looking seat in my opinion
