Sportsman 850XP 2-up seat options?

Hi there, new guy here... Just purchased a Black 850XP 2 weeks ago and am having a heck of a hard time finding a 2-up seat (toolbox...) that works with the lock & ride system. The dealer gave me a universal one that would work great if I had a normal rack, and I may just fabricate something to hold it on using brackets and the lock & ride racks mounting bolts... Unless anyone on here has any better options...

So you're looking to turn your XP into a 2-up and you need a different type of seat?

Thanks for the welcome!

Pinochle767 - Pretty much I am trying to do what anyone with a normal tube rack can do by adding a "tool box" with integrated handles and seat cushion. Of course they say no passengers, and I would never dream of riding with a passenger (wink) but it's been done for years, and I am a little frustrated at how difficult it is proving to be with this Lock & ride System.

Haha I can understand your frustration! Sometimes the applications made for the Lock and Ride system don't even work properly.

Have you seen the back rest that Polaris sells? I believe it is adjustable and might work for what you're trying to do. As far as some handlebars I'm not sure how to help you there. You're right the Lock and Ride kinda hinders modifications.

If you're pretty good with your hands you could probably fabricate something of your own. Another fella on here does alot of modifications of his own and they come out real well.

I have been told the font end gets kinda light on these with a passenger on back. That they tend to really plow through the turns. just a word of caution.

Polaris now offers two up versions of the XP for 2010. If anyone is intersted.

I know this post is over one year old, but I found it as a Google search result.

My thought would be to modifiy the Sportman XP Steel Rack Extenders to add some more rack where I would need it.

I was thinking of this before I was looking into a 2up seat just to have more options to strap gear down more securely.
