My DRZ is FINALLY comfortable!!!!

Recommended Posts

Just had the seat on my DRZ windened, refoamed and recovered by a local upholsterer here in the UK, it is AWESOMELY comfortable now compared to the truly awful standard seat.... and best of all it's a fantastic quality job and was a mere 50 UK pounds!!

He's looking for business so anyone interested he'll do the same for you :smirk:

I REALLY cannot stress how much better this is than it was previously!

Nice, but, the pictures are a bit big to be able to see it properly. At least on my laptop anyway.

Is that for hauling it out of the mud? I need some straps for that.

Looks good, smaller view gives a better idea of the overall shape. :smirk:

What's the red tube in the first pic under the bars? Seat looks comfy.

Looks like a cable lock.

Definitely get a better feel from the smaller pictures. Looks great.

I usually laugh at the "comfortable seats" on the DRZ. I mean, really? Comfort?

...and then I went and did 200 miles of dual sport riding yesterday, everything from slab to singletrack and now my a$$ is KILLING ME! I would have given most anything for a seat like that yesterday!

I'm impressed. On road I could only manage 10 miles before it hurt. Off road spending most of the time stood on the pegs was ok, but the standard seat limited my exploring range :smirk:

Did 50 miles on road toady and blissfully comfy!

Last time I rode 50 mile woth the old seat I think I bruised (at least) my coccyx and found sitting on anything to be uncomfy for two weeks or so

I'm needing to do something... I did 400 miles yesterday... the last 150 was TORTURE... I was doing the seat dance like crazy. I've got an Air Hawk seat pad... but forgot it...

I think I'm gonna try buying a stock seat of egay... then cut it down, widen it... and add some memory foam... see how I like it...

He may well do, you'd need to call him and chat with him. Mention that Steve recommended his work :smirk: as I said I'd put the word out and he was all for it :ride:

His name is Colin and his phone number is 01244 546001. his workshop is in Buckley, Flintshire, North Wales.

Looks great , maybe a bit wide at the front for off road, but definate improvement for long haul

perhaps so but it does'nt seem too bad when standing on the pegs or with a foot down etc, and it does support your thighs at the front nicely too, plus I still have my gel seat to pop on if I'm off for a day over the Welsh mountains :smirk:

is this one of those vibration seats? They are only made for the drz's.

Pardon, I don't understand what you're saying?

How did he widen the seat pan to support the foam ?

On road I could only manage 10 miles before it hurt.

You need more practice :ride:

I did more 350 mile days than I can remember and several 750 mile day rides, with a cut down stock seat.

Neil. :smirk::lol::ride:

I generally ride in Devon but once a year a group of us head out to Wales to sample the Sarn Helen, Gap and Strata Florida area - beautifully country.:ride:

Any chance you could you give me some pointers on other area's to ride?

Cheers, Rich.

:lol::smirk:
