I looked around and didn’t really like any of the aftermarket seats. The r seat does look a little firmer, but still fairly thin. I wanted more cushion on the a$$bone but still want to slide into the “pocket” and feel low into the bike in the curves. I figured if I’m going to buy another seat I don’t even like for several hundred dollars I really have nothing to lose by trying to mod my own. I peeled forward the seat cover and slid in a 2”x 6” piece of memory foam. I trimmed and tapered it and stapled the cover back down. Came out better than expected for a first try, and initial test ride feels positive.
Usually after about a tank of gas my butt is burning and I want to keep going but I can’t take it. Hopefully this will be the solution. Doesn’t look too bad next to stock, but you can see the difference.
When the rear starts to hurt I always try to “roll” back to find the cushion, and there was none. There is now. I may refine a little but so far I’m happy with it. Cost $5 to try
Life is short.. better ride fast
