stock seat pan works, slight modifacations on the sides by our strutsKurt I haven't asked you this question but will the stock seat work with your kit ? Does the shorty fender have bolt holes for seat if so can we opt out on holes and use another seat pan with dual lock velcro ? I have a L&M seat pan will this work with your Sumo kit ?
I could be wrong. I am hoping this is a thread for a seat to go on the fury after the Sumo X kit is installed and not for stock. Hopefully it's for both! Knowing Kurt I am willing to bet it's for both!Stock seat problems....
1. No support for lower back.2. Crappy foam allows for about 30 minutes of comfortable riding.
If you can come up with a seat that is a low profile seat, has some support, good foam and possibly gel, and fits the 250 fender you will have a winner.
+1 .i've never like how far back it goes onto the fender. I ride solo most of the time so my passenger seat is never on. And when she does ride with me im getting a suction seat for her anyway. Is there a way to shorten it up a bit without exposing the ugly part of the fender?
Also dont like how it overlaps the tank either.
Here's a pic of something like what i have in mind.
Yes this would be for the sumo kit.
when you guys say "unconfortible" what exactly do you mean?
pain in the tailbone? lower back? shoulders? (yes that can be caused by the seat)
Here is the problem...everybody is diferent, things like bar location, suspention set up and foot peg placement all can relate to back pain on a bike.
My butt hurts and goes numb after about an hour on the stock seat. It is much better with the pillow that I am riding on now, but that compresses down after a while. I think it’s called Monkey Butt.
Yes, literal pain in the ass is what we're getting at here. The bike is no good if you can't at least ride for a tanks worth of fuel before you feel the agony of defeat in your butt. .....and a tanks worth of fuel isn't very long with these small tanks.all the other variables aside, it's how soon the butt goes numb.
the seat should have more foam than the oem; also, a slightly more firmer foam.
any foam is going to settle during a ride.
frankly, take apart a c&c and you'll have the foam recipe-then mix it all up with a Sumo-X seat pan for the 250 fender and you have a weener!!
Well put Skap. Could use the foam from the C&C to keep the same mold? Would that be called "seat jacking"?frankly, take apart a c&c and you'll have the foam recipe-then mix it all up with a Sumo-X seat pan for the 250 fender and you have a weener!!
What he said. And agree with all the previous comments, it's not back or shoulder pain, just numb ass after about a half-hour.1. finish flush with the top of the tank
2. stop at the tank to expose complete tank
3. little bit lower profile and keep the comfort
4. GATOR SKIN insert damn it!! I am still waiting. Not on you
5. 1 piece for 2up also, that covers OEM sissy bar mounts
that is what I would like
