Seat Recommendations - New Guy Here

Just signed up. Don't hate, I know how forums can be.

I have a 2017 RG and I love it. I want to update the seat - looking for 2 up black with red stitch. What do you recommend? I actually don't hate the stock seat, like some do, but I want to add some looks.

Welcome to the forum.
I don't know if they make a black seat with red stitching, but you can't go wrong with a Mustang seat.
Good luck!

Congrats on the new scoot, welcome from Mass!

Corbin or Lucky Dave's will both stitch you a killer seat. There are also some vendors that will restitch your seat, not sure of the names. Someone will jump in.

Mean city cycle can use your stock seat and get you the color and any other changes you may want.

Welcome from Utah. Try LePera it would be a custom order. I have a LePera Monterey solo custom made in full leather and jell seat. Worth the additional cost. http://www.lepera.com/

There are definitely some options out there. I used Mean City Cycles. Did a seat mod and recovered in black leather. Did all black stitching, but during the conversation with customer service they said it could be stitched with any color or additional patterns. Perforated or solid leather or vinyl of different colors. Pretty much endless options. You find a picture and attach it to an email to them, they will make it.

You can also do a Corbin seat. They are nice.

Do your research. Sit on some seats. Whatís comfortable for one isnít for all and what is comfortable the first hour maybe horrible for the long haul.

I have the Drag Specialties Predator 3, and while Iím a big fan, my OL ainít. If sheís going along for any real distance I started putting the stocker back on.

Check out this thread for some pics of the Predator and Lucky Daveís.

If I had to do it over again, I might consider a custom Corbin from BMC.
