Nice!

That looks really good! Thanks for sharing with great pictures.

I reworked a DL650 seat using medical grade foam and it's easier on my posterior. It gets awful HOT on a
summer day, tho. I never looked for foam with breathing holes like the stuff you have. And I was afraid to
cut out as much as you did.

You have inspired me to be less conservative, find better foam and give it another try.

Ride Safe!

I did most of the work on my seat the let Don at Mr. Ed's Moto www.mredsmoto.com do the rest. AHHHH.

I confirmed the stock seat suck. I had added 1/2 closed cell foam but it was not enough. They are just to narrow, and I have a narrow posterior. Well worth the $. Mine was less due to doing most of the build myself.
