As with most any Motorsports genre’ there is some down time, especially in the 2 wheeled arena. This is the best time to assess our rides for upgrades and repairs. One area we often seem to overlook is the seat. Over time, the cushion can flatten, the covers can fade and tear, and you are left with a seat that not only performs badly but looks horrible too. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) now carries Factory FX seat foams and covers for most of today’s models.
Your bike is a couple of years old now and it has ad its share of Scrambles, trips through the woods, and all around honest wear and tear. One of the first things you notice is that seat now seems to offer less padding than it did before. You aren’t sure what to do, but you do know you need something better than the stock seat. Consider a replacement seat foam from Factory Effex, available from K and G Cycles. Replacement seat foams are made with Tri-density Soft-cell seat foam technology and is available in different height, softness and widths available depending on your model. Imagine the feel of a renewed seat and the profile it will bring back to your ride.
