    Stupid question - Water logged Seat

    I know this is probably a stupid question, but I'm sure many of you have had this happen.

    My GP1300R seat is waterlogged. I took the seat off to check the motor while at the lake. I had it next to me and my cousin decided to sit on the seat while it was floating nicely minding its own business.

    I have had the seat upright against the wall and water has slowly been coming out for 2 weeks now. It still is about 5-10 lbs heavier than it should be. Is there a faster and better way to dry the inner foam of the seat???

    You can try blowing air into it. Or add vents (I wouldn't do this if you ride surf) Keeping it in heat helps.

    Save yourself a headache and buy a new one. Same thing happened to me, and it weighed 50 pounds. I left it in the sun for days, left it in the hot attic for months, and it will never, ever, ever dry out.

    Either live with it, or buy a new one.

    Can a waterlogged seat cause problems with the jet ski running and not having air to get through for engine?

    The only way to really dry it out would be to remove the seat cover and let it dry out that way.
