I have now been using the seat you remade for me for 3 months, I just wanted to let you know it is fantastic for comfort and the reduced height adds a lot of confidence. It beats the original and gel seat by far.
Picture of bike with your seat attached FYI.
Absolutely bloody fantastic !!! Thank you for the teriffic job you did on my ThunderAce (YZF1000) seat. I could not believe the quality of the work you guys have done. I too went for a Corbin seat thinking it was the best seat on the market but I was sadly disapointed, mainly with the shape. Comfortable whilst moving but awkward while waiting at traffic lights with feet down. Your seat has given the bike back it’s original “feel” but improved on it both in comfort (great choice of foam) and appearance (looks superb). Thanks again for the great job.
Good evening Peter,
Seat received in good order this afternoon, COD through Australia Post. Seat looks great, and even better on the bike, a nice job. Thanks and all the best.
I promised you I would give a full road test review to you after I’d put a few hundred k’s on the new seat. Well I had that chance on the weekend. Here’s what I found:
The overall experience was a positive one! Upon getting it back from you in the post it immediately appeared wider and a little softer but not as soft as I had envisioned it would be. Having remembered you said if it was too soft it may sag I felt OK about it. It certainly looks the part with good attention to detail and workmanship. The vinyl used seems a good choice as it is not to slippery or grippy – a very good compromise with a quality feel.
I’ve ridden on it twice now with the last one being a 200K ride from Sydney to Wollembi. The standard seat was giving me a ‘tailbone’ ache after just 30 minutes or so. The standard seat was very hard and narrow. The new softness of your new seat was apparent upon first sitting on it but even more so after a while in the saddle. However, I feel the biggest improvement has been the extra width over the original design. It very effectively spreads the load across now and I do not have anymore ‘tailbone’ ache at all. I can’t believe I nearly spent $1,200 (in total with shipping!) to get a Corbin seat from the US when the solution was here in my own back yard for a fraction of that price!
What you have done with a sculpted few pieces of different density foam on top of the original seat base is amazing Peter. I certainly won’t have any problem recommending you to my friends and other riders and would be happy for you to show this email as a recommendation to any future clients of yours. God knows why Suzuki couldn’t replicate this as standard equipment and save us all the trouble?!
Many thanks again Peter, for transforming my riding experience and enjoyment of my DR650.
Collected the seat Friday – am very happy! Looks Great! Thanks!
(Sorry about the delay, I was travelling.)
I had to write to thank you for such a great product. The cumfy foam you sent me has literally made the difference between the old 900SS being almost unrideable to comfortable. After spending a lot on suspension, and two previous seat foam replacements, you will understand how grateful I am. Now I can look forward to Ducati Turismo.
I picked up the Moto Guzzi seat from the Canberra Post Office today – it had been there for a while but I had not received a card.
The seat looks great – very close to original.
Thanks very much.
Initially the seat seemed really high and was quite painful, this probably had a lot to do with me being on the DL650 seat all day prior to picking this one up, at this stage it seems to be better and going for the firmer padding also appears to be the right choice. I think it will need a good 3-6 months bedding in time to be fair so I’ll keep getting back to you as time progresses.
Hi Peter, I got the seat. Looks fantastic.
Thanks very much
Just a short note to say thanks for recovering the old GSX750 seat – it looks 100% better than it did, and fits the bike nicely.
All the best for Christmas & the New year.
