Seat brace modification to hold ski


Recommended Posts


Long time lurker but first post. I just bought a 2014 VTX and I'm a bit disappointed in the ski storage options. I'm unable to store a 67" slalom ski through rear locker, so my only non-tower storage option is under the port side passenger seats. Unfortunately there is a divider/brace under the middle seat that makes ski storag sub-optimal.

I would like to remove this divider and I want to know if there is any structural reason for it? Can I remove it entirely, or do I need to install substitute bracing? If substitute bracing is required, is port side, starboard side (of the compartment), or both with a header to support the seat needed? If both with a header is required I'm picturing something similar to the current divider, but with an opening in the middle to allow skis to pass through.

Thanks for the input!
