I seem to remember a few post's,but can't find them now about getting the AT seat fitted with better shaped foam. Can abdee point me in the right direction.
My first ride out this year ( today ) has reminded me how dire the seat is,too bloody high as well.
But the 3 month between riding it last has got the Buell out of my system ,when I wound it on climbing up from dufftown going to Huntly it flew ,plenty fast enough .
cheers

thanks chaps.
Pyro, could you send me the upholsterer's details, the one on ebay would be prime for getting sorted if it's not very comfy, cos it's cheap and local, and would save my original blue one ,to keep the bike original.
Sorted

OK you lot...what experiences have people had getting there seat altered...the standard seat is painful after a while on the motorway but not too bad on the twisty roads as you tend to move around....is a Gel seat that much better and is it worth the money? :confused:

www.caulfieldleather.co.uk or tel 07921450365, is place is 10mins from J24 M60 heading towards Hyde.
