I was lucky enough to get a complete seat for $160.00 shipped from a forum member that had it in the for sale section here.....

From what I have seen, Seat concepts has raised their prices considerably since I got my kit.
It is nice... but I don't think I would have paid more than the $170 or so I did just for a cover and foam.

If'n I do it, I gunna git a wippin .... OK! I do it!!!

Yep, I found a seat concepts "low" model for $175 and a luimoto for $160plus shipping.



avail at this link ....https://www.luimoto.com/?p=320 This is a cover / foam only and attaches to the OEM seat pan .... I have no interest in lowering kits or dropping the forks.

So I bought an OEM seat on eBay with the intention to try my own “seat modification” and if that didn’t work, probably send the pan to Seat Concepts or have someone local work a custom seat for me.

I used a Stanley Surform “shaver” and methodically removed portions of the seat. What I was attempting to do was make the seat narrower so my legs are not spread out as much when at a stop.

Below are some pictures. One thing I will note is the stapler I had didn’t have enough horsepower (me and/or the stapler) to re-attach the cover. So I went to a local custom seat shop and had them staple the cover back on.

Haven’t ridden yet but will tomorrow and over the weekend to get a feel on this modification to an OEM seat.

Shaved seat before re-attaching the cover:

Is that Luimoto include the foam? I thought it was only for the cover.
