Qld solo rego.

Post  ringydodds on Wed 05 Dec 2018, 8:12 am

Hello people . I would like to use the solo registration in Qld for my 1250s Bandit. Any thoughts on shortening the seat to 500mm?    Cheers Max.

I think others have put a seat cowl over the rear seat and removed the rear foot pegs .

Check the current laws.
All my bikes are now single. I've had them like this for along time.  
I was lead to believe last time I enquired about doing another, that you don't have to change the seat
Now. ..don't quote me on that.  This was from a bike shop though. But it would be all to easy just to ask and find out.
I'm sure it's not as strict of the old times, unless you've got current information saying otherwise.

A friend has all his bikes (7 at the last count) single seat registration. Going by him you do not have to modify any part of the bike now. Just phone up motor registry and ask them to change the registration to single seat. Apparently, it is all done over the phone and they will even reimburse you the difference  pro-rata any time during the registration period.  Now that all police vehicles including bikes have computers they know from your number plate if the bike is single seat registration.

Hope this helps.

Just went to QLD DOT transport and they have a form that states-
one seat - seat is less than or equal to 500mm (50cm) in length and with no pillion foot pegs.

Damn - got me hopes up then . . .

Have you spoken to a bike shop, or only main roads  ? 
If you haven't spoken to a bike shop,  you should still ask. 
If you have, well it is what it is then. Sometimes they can.....bend the rules. 

I spoke to Motorcycle's R US, at Springwood, about 6 months ago, which contradicts what you've been told.

When I did mine 5yrs ago and beyond, yes I had to get dummy seats for the compliance plate. 
But that was then.  I never went to main roads,  the shop did everything for me.

Well I am now totally confused

My previous bike, CBR650, I had the seat modified by a motor trimmer to comply with the single seat rule. He didn't shorten the seat but instead built a "big humpy backrest" out of foam so the seat was obviously only for a single person.
In March 2015 I purchased my DL650. I visited Qld TMR and filled out a modification form and had to hand write two very specific paragraphs regarding the modification. There was no requirement for an inspection although I had to remove the pillion footpegs. I should have got a copy of the form.


I just checked my registration certificate which shows seats = 1. The accompanying RACQ insurance certificate shows CTP class 12 being single seat.
I have recently done an extensive search of TMR plus other sites and I cannot find any info that supports what I have done. Am I legal? Buggered if I know so I will just keep riding.

Hi Bandit Dave . I now live in Maryborough,just down the road. I don`t think QLD Main Roads know thier own rules. All the middle aged women employed by Main Roads seen to have different ideas.

My single seat modification has been done by at least 20 people that I know.

I'm not sure of your free time but every Friday morning you will find between 30 and 40 bikes at Burrum Heads. Its been a meeting place for about the last 15+ years. Everything from sports bikes to a BSA Bantam. Most people are there between 7.00 and 10.00

You will see a majority of the bikes there have single seat rego with no seat modifications, the same as me. Go figure.

If you are looking for a good, well priced mechanic, Dave Shaw at Shawey's Workshop in Kent St will look after you.

This is why I say go to a bike shop, not main roads.
2018 is when the lastest change in laws  supposedly   happened....according to the bike shop I go to.
