Whats under your seat cover?
I have 3 seats for the pro. this one was trashed so i took it apart to see what and how its made up. Someone has cut this bottom somewhat to make room for something under the seat. maybe carbs F/A's not sure.
Gives ya a chance to see whats under the seat you sit on.. Not sure if this foam is original to the Pro from the factory. It had a different seat cover on it. But it clips on the same as the other Pro seats.

Nope. doesnt stink 1 bit. not wet. its neprene foam looks like, doesnt hold water. hey cliffy, I got those seats with my Pro.. I didnt get them seperately.
Iv'e watched a guy make a seat out of foam once, it was pretty neat. he used a makita tool like an electric knive to cut the foam. it worked great. Then added different foams for different surfaces.. pretty neat ..

Thats why i though that had some work down due to the different colouring in foam, i would of thought Polaris would of had a foam mold to pour the foam into pre shape jobby

It may just have been that way. then it shrunk, then someone recovered it with a new cover and added the additional blue foam to fill in gaps where the foam shrank originally.
I heard that happened to the seats. the foams shrinks inside and leaves a gap. My other seat has that problem.. this one actually fit tight to the seat. just the cover rotted away. I bet it wasnt a sunbrella material!.

That foam will hold water and it will stink!!
When I recovered the Hurricane seat a few weeks ago I had to leave the foam sitting out it in the sun to bake for about a week before I put the cover back on. I bet that thing lost a good 5 pounds of water weight!

The Pro 785 foam was designed to not hold water. Unfortunately, as already mentioned it did shrink a lot. That is why every original Pro 785 seat cover, fits so loosely.

Here's a pic of the original seat with the foam that shrank. Polaris chose a special light weight foam for racing, Unfornately it shrinks.
