Tank Pad

Finally got around to installing the new tank pad that shipped in from the UK. Had purchased a generic pad a couple months ago and was just about to stick it on and couldn't. Had seen this one online and being the cheap one I am didn't order it... Bit the bullet knowing she wouldn't be happy without her own pad so here it is... Turned out nice me thinks!

1 can of clear pastidip and you can shape your own much more protecting scuff protection.

I really need to do something like this - have 2 gouges from my jacket when I got on at some point... didn't even notice, and none of my zippers are exposed, so yeah... awesome. Might have to do some paint repair before I do better scuff protection.

Something goes here...

I just bought a small roll (8"...?) of that 3M paint protection film, then cut pieces and stuck them on the tank, etc.



Protects w/out detracting from the paint color....

Its a Terry Adcock Flat Seat. I'll link his eBay ad. If you scroll to the bottom of the eBay link you can call Terry directly. Back when i got mine when he first started making them he would drop off 25 bucks if you called him direct.....Kawasaki 650 Versys Custom Flat Seat | eBay

Thanks Weljo. I went in to ebay and put that seat on my watch list so I would not lose track of it. Today I added a pad to the center of my seat to see if that levels things out a little . I get sleepy butt after about an hour some times. I also might try the front of seat raise that Fast Eddie has done. I have plenty of leg reach to the ground. I appreciate the help, CJC

Terry is a custom seat maker. He built the first flat seat to my specifications and then started selling it on ebay. He can adjust it to fit your specific needs. He is about an hour from me and I have had him build several seats for different bikes. Quality work.

He is out touring the western states for the month of June if you are trying to get in touch with him.
