$4 seat pad - October 24, 2007, 10:02 PM

I wanted to add more to the seat pad on the SV I bought for the track, and looking around the internets I found a bunch of retailers selling seat foam for $35-80 (plus shipping and waiting). I thought this was pretty unacceptable for a flat piece of foam, so I figured there had to be a better way...

REI - $4

http://www.rei.com/product/688668



They also have these - $17 for a pair - they already have adhesive on the back.

http://www.rei.com/product/685648



They're both very similar, if not the same - I bought one of each.

The original pad -



The $4 foam



Make a pattern...



To cut this out it HAS to be done with an x-acto (sp?) knife, or similar. A utility blade wont work, its too wide/dull and I chewed up a piece of foam with one.



The $17 foam - its identical to the $4 foam except it has adhesive on the back and its a little smaller





I put another foam layer on the bump pad behind the seat with the adhesive backed stuff to see how it well it sticks, and it stays on there but it can be peeled back off pretty easily.

I think for this stuff, the $4 foam and some spray adhesive ($5-10) is the way to go.

Edit - the foam is pretty much identical to whats on the bike right now - same thickness, etc. Maybe I should go into business making seat pads for $80

stock seats dont keep your vajayjay firmly in place? or does the stock seat let in too much sand when you pretend you are on your john deere?
