Thumbs up Inexpensive seat cushion

Heres a cheap seat cushion i picked up at my favorite online vendor, www.sportsmansguide.com It was about $35.00 and is sold under their atv department. It was cheap so i got one and figured i'd put it on the 4 wheeler if it did'nt fit the strom. It does fit pretty good and helped out a lot on a 250 mile run i did today. I ended up doubling it over to get more cushion and to give about 1.5 inchs raise in seat height.

Interesting

Interesting, Reb.

I wonder if it stays in place better than my Lava Buns cushion. I have to move mine around sometimes(or should I say move around on it), which isn't entirely bad since this liquid stuff sqwooshes around a bit to put pressure on a different side of your butt--but is does get scrunched up and you have to straighten it up every now and then, usually at the end of your ride.

I'll bet the people trying to sell $400 Corbin seats hate us for this kind of stuff, but I think some riders might want to know that there are some options that work with the OEM seat. Good Post.

Thanks XL i didn't mean to reuse the name on your post but when i tried to change it it wouldn't. I actually found that the thing stayed in place with no adjustment throughout the entire ride including me standing a few times at around 45mph and a short trailride. It is probably harder than some other seat cover/cushions as it is foam inside rather than gel but it was better than stock and despite my first thoughts on it, I would buy another if mine were to get missing.
