Where would you send your seat to have it lowered and recovered ? I have just bought a new Vara and i need to have the seat re-shaped to suit my short legs :( Or does Mr Honda do one? Thanks.

I have used a local guy to me who is a custom, restoration and prototype vehicle trimmer. I only used him to recover my gasgas seat £25. I asked him about bike seats he said he could do them any design any colour any shape and any material you want but the more the intricate detail the more the price. I can give you his number if you want but i guess it's a bit far for you

Thanks for the info. I think i will need to see if i can find a knackered seat and use that as a basis for a re-shape and lowering excercise. Not sure i weant to use a brand new seat for that. Do you know of any by chance ?

Hi Delboy 777,

This is my first post as just joined, I recently had my seat lowered on my 58 (VA-8) but am looking to swap it with a standard for the right conditions. PM me if you would be interested, cost me £240 to have done, new covering, gel pads and lowered by 2". I can send pics etc to any email address you provide. the seat has been on the bike for only 200 miles.

Fortunately,my manager very rarely goes on the bike so it will make no difference. Although, she has agreed to go with me to Knockhill BSBtomorrow, which is a round trip of about 6 hours from here. That will test out the Alp.
