MadDog seat pad installed
« on: July 23, 2017, 07:26:53 PM »
Less than $20 from Walmart. Fits pretty snug, adds about an inch to the seat height. Pretty firm to sit on. No riding impressions yet as it's raining (again). Does not move about at all. Padding seems to be the same foam that's used for back and elbow protection in jackets. I'll update after putting a few miles on it

I'd been looking at different seating options. Sliding forward and lack of comfort need to be addressed (for me) to allow riding more than a couple of hours. I added the $20 MadDog cover two or three weeks ago and spent about 4 1/2 hours riding that day and several hundred miles since. This was just something cheap to try for now. It was immediately beneficial as I'm not looking for anything else right now and seems like it'll hold up.
The provided buckles and straps wouldn't allow the seat to lock in place. I clipped the poly buckles off and laced it down with 550 cord through the fabric loops.

I have had this seat pad on for about 200 miles or so. It has helped a good bit. I have not taken rides longer then an hour and a half but I have no complaints for a pad that is $20. It helps prevent me from sliding into the tank which I liked a lot about it. As I sit on it longer and longer it feels like it is starting to break in which I think is helpful with the overall comfort of it.

Well seems like I did OK then ... Oh and the straps work just fine for me , secure and the seat latch's down fine.  :027: I'd be concerned with para cord cutting the original seat cover edges over time as the contact patch is much much smaller. :006:
