Yes, it is so nice to ride and not think about my rear aching. LoL. Really so much better!
I need to figure that one out.
Not to hijack the 511 thread, but what will the configuration of the TR seat be? It could be a bit more rounded off just aft of the transition from the tank.
I want to order one of your seats and install it myself but where can I get the 3/16 staples? Do you supply them?
I installed mine with an craftsman stapler and 3/16" can be had at any hardware, lowes, home depot, etc
Take your time and it will be pretty and feel so much better.
Thanks for the info. I will continue to look for 3/16 staples. I have been unsuccessful at any hardware including Home Depot, Lowes, and online. Do you know the brand and part number of the staples you used?
I checked, and I used 3/8" stanley TR45. Worked just fine. My seat has been on awhile, about 400 miles, looks as
Good as the day I put it on...
The 3/8 staples are what we use.
Okay, I'll send in my order.
I found the right staples at Harbor Freight right next to the wide crown staple gun. The stapler was on sale for $22.00, so I was out the door for $27 with a box of staples and tax.
Worked like a charm. Finally got to test it and man what a difference!!! Me and my best side thank you for a truly comfy solution.
Just did a 350 mile day with my new TE449 seat. I was great up to the 200ish mile point. 200-270 was mildly uncomfortable. The last 80 miles of highway back home really sucked though. Overall it's way better than stock. A 100 mile day on the stock seat had my butt screaming in pain.
Wow, that's what I call iron butt.
Before the seat concepts seat, 20min., was a long time, but still were not riding gold wing here.
100 miles on these bikes is a long way.
I have done a few over 200 mile days on mine with the SC seat. Was bearable but yes starting to not be fun. I would have been crying with the stock seat with I found OK.
Looking for another SC custom seat for a TE511. If you didn't think the last one you made for me was challenging, this one surely will be. On the SC mold for the 449/511's, the seat doesn't extend all the way to the outer plastics in the rear and I would like to have one that did. This is very uncomfortable for me to ride with my leg constantly rubbing against the outer corner of the plastic. Do you think you could make one like this?
I want the rear half of the seat to meet with the edge of the plastics as shown in the lower picture. The seat doesn't extend all the way to the outer plastics in the rear and I would like to have one that did. This is very uncomfortable for me to ride because I ride so far back on the seat.
Contact Lendon at 951-741-0722, I'm sure he will go over this with you.
After today's ride I definitely need a new seat! Also interested in a seat with Tinken's mods.
I called Lendon and he said he would call me back in an hour. That was four weeks ago, so he must be busy.
Call again, worth it.
