Re: Race-seat mod

we will be cheering for Jake in 2013 for sure Tdub. He seems like a one of the "nice guys".

Here is a sharkskinz seat pan and Graves seat foam i just put on for the final FL region CCS round because JOSH HAYES TOLD ME I NEEDED IT I really liked it, and am for the life of me, not sure why i didn't put one on 4 years ago.
CCS tech official Gary Mcquiston passed me in tech for hwss, and ccs still gave me my #1 plate
Friggin not cheap though, seat pan is $150 (gotta love the sharkskinz contingency program though.. i just paid shipping. THANKS MARY! ) but the seat foam form Graves was $80 each (have 2 of these) . It's nice foam, and precut.. but there may be something out there a tad less expensive. It's FOAM for goodness sakes! LOL
This is not the superbike tail.. that you put foam directly on. this is a ss tail, that you could use the stock seat OR this seat pan seat/foam.

That looks quite nice... Def want to get rid of the stock seat for reasons others have stated. They make these seat pans for diff styles of bodywork? I'm running the Armour Bodies track bodywork... Or would that seat pan work just the same with mine too?

Re: Race-seat mod

Wonder if there would be a way to make a couple DZUS fasteners work... Something I could try out when I do eventually pick up a seat pan...
