    Don't laugh at my new "race" seat

    With all these smoking fast yamahas I need a seat that would hold me on better. ANy guesses where this came from. ANd yes I know it doesnt match.

    Looks like it came from a FX Cruiser

    i found a similiar setup on a cool looking SHO. and the seats match. i was told by another member who has a cruiser that the seats are not interchangeable. but, it would be an option for me.
    i did notice a gap on yor seats. that could probably be filled when you get them upholstered to match.

    Actually for some reason when we installed the seat on my ski it latched when hit hard and took up most of the gap. This is a brand new ski and it didnt quite fit as easy. Maybe my moldings are worn just enough. I am getting it upholstered tuesday, I will repost then.So far I really like how it looks and feels. It will look much better when its all jettrim.

    I think it gives it a sportbike look. The softer foam on the cruiser seat is super comfortable on long rides too. I'm sure the foam on the rear section of the front seat could be shaved down a bit to match the height of the rear seat. BTW, if you use a Hydroturf cover, ask your upholsterer to leave it a little loose. Mine looked great until it sat in the sun for a few hours before the first ride & it shrunk. There is a velcro strip in the crease for the backrest that holds the cover to the foam & it ripped loose on the first ride. Now I have to have it redone. Here's the before pic:

    Which sponsons are you using? I recall seeing the make in your sig. I ask because I see the front two holes are covered from where the stockers went. I have Riva but the front two hole on each side are exposed. Black electrical tapes does the job but I would prefer a setup like yours. I know the Worx covers them.

    The cruiser seat is what caught my eyes.
