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.

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.

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...

having the ss tail with the seat foam kicks you out? They always had some odd rules.
