First post yay
Ok guys, I have a ninja 250 2011. Bought new, been 2 years i have it. The moment I left the shop with it I liked it... Until the first long ride. At about 50 km i would die to a pit stop that god awful wooden seat from hell.
So I did some research a chose a Saddleman gel seat. Went to 50 to a 100 km. Friend got a goldwind and a Vmax 2010, and he can do pretty much 1000km stopping only for fuel. Nothing to be said, I was the weakest link. And that seat cost me over 200$. Did some more research, and got myself a airhawk seat pad. That thing work miracle. But raise the height and put a lot of stress on wrist. I was trading a butt pain to a wrist pain, but i stayed like that for a year. Today I found my old seat sitting in the garage and decided to make some change.
I made a slide show for you ( its not in order i guess )
Automotive waterproof fabric
Fiber polyester cushion mat
Work mat ( got it at costco for 20$ )
at least as comfortable as the saddlemen
take 2 hours so save a couple hundred
The seat could use some fine tuning, like less neoprene and more polyester, or gel pad instead of work mat. Leather instead of automotive fabric. Be creative, this was my first try at a seat.
