What’s the most comfortable motorcycle touring seat?
That’s an even tougher question đồ sộ answer than`what’s the best motorcycle oil?’ Not only does everyone have their own opinion, everyone also has their own size and body toàn thân shape, sánh there are nearly infinite combinations. Motorcycle seats are lượt thích mattresses: Some lượt thích firm and supportive, others lượt thích soft and pillowy. The best way đồ sộ research the seats you’re interested in is đồ sộ join a diễn đàn for your motorcycle, then tìm kiếm the seat threads. If your xe đạp is a tourer or sport-tourer, there are probably hundreds of them. When you’re ready đồ sộ bite the bullet, kiểm tra the return policy just in case you and your new seat aren’t a good match – bearing in mind that some of them need a “break-in time” of up đồ sộ 1000 miles.
Can I reupholster my own seat?
But of course. Most seat covers are held đồ sộ the base by heavy staples, shot by the kind of staple gun you may already have around the house if only you can find it. Upholstery stores, with all kinds of foam and seat coverings including the ubiquitous vinyl, are all over the place and online. The electric knife is apparently the tool of choice for removing foam and shaping new chunks đồ sộ spray-adhesive in place as needed. If at all possible, find a donor seat for your xe đạp in a junkyard or on ebay; all you need is the seat pan, or base. That way you have nothing đồ sộ lose if your little experiment goes horribly wrong.
How tự I clean and protect my motorcycle seat?
Keeping it out of the elements, most of all the hot sun, is the best protection. Some people carry a xe đạp cover, but there are also seat covers that are easier đồ sộ carry and deploy – nice đồ sộ have on frosty mornings. But hey, motorcycles are meant đồ sộ be outside and đồ sộ get wet and dirty, sánh cleaning the seat is easy enough with soap and water or whatever you clean the rest of your xe đạp with, unless you’ve got some kind of custom ostrich giảm giá. A nice vinyl/leather cleaner and conditioner now and then can’t hurt.
