Race-seat mod

Does anyone have any experience, or advice, for modifying a stock seat on an 09 R6 to be better shaped for track day/ racing?

Also, who else besides HT Moto sells GOOD (race) seat foam? id like something more then just a simple foam pad... ideally one that that doesnt require the race tail, but has a "race shape". Too bad there is nothing on the market that is the old seat, modified in shape and coating to fit like a race seat.

Re: Race-seat mod

I haven't seen anything about a stock seat having a race seat form....closest I seen was the cover that ht moto makes that makes it less slippery. I have the woodcraft foam on my sbk tail and absolutely love it.

Re: Race-seat mod

You could take your stock seat to an upholstery worker and have them work some magic... But if you really want a "race seat" you'll probably need fiberglass.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Race-seat mod

Saddlemen supplies seats to some of the pro riders.

Here is a custom seat made by them for Joey Pascarella' GSXR.

The Saddlemen seat is superb.

if you bought a superbike tail and get the foam to go with it, that's what most racers use. i never thought that the seat was not shaped right, tho. i've been using the stock seat and doing fine...
