Default Re: Gel seat for M50

Is that the old Savage? Does it need a gel seat? Do what I do with my old Triumph - ride it slower over shorter distences.

You might try the gel seat available from Suzuki -- $220

Its a bit like Marauder 800. Suzuki changed all of them names, Savage is now S40. I just donĀ“t get it how people could prefer moped sounding "S40".

Try one of those imitation shearling covered gel pads from JC Whitney. The gel part slides into the faux shearling seat cover through a zipper in the back of the cover. They're cheap and they work ok. They're held in place with two inch-wide-or-so u-shaped clasps that fit underneath your seat edge and are snugged up to hold the pad in place. A large one is about $80. I've used one on my ST1100 and ridden a couple of 800 mile days with it. Not great but better than the stock seat and not a ton of money either.

M50 is the redesigned 800 Intruder. 805cc V-twin- I believe they have left the shaft drive off this one.

I own an Intruder 1400. I haven't ridden on the gel seat, but riders on the forum on Intruder Alert have said the Suzuki gel seat is a BIG improvement.

IMHO, a largish "six" is easier to sit on, as the Ischial Tuberosities (forgive my spelling) don't pressure the skin so much with the extra padding.



My Triumph gel seat (for the Sprint) is ok, but living South of I-10, it gets "nucular" hot if I park in the sun too long. And, it doesn't cool down for a long while.

Incorrect. The M50 is a newer version of the maurader if anything. It is mechanicly identical to the C50/volusia, with the exception of the inverted forks. It has shaft drive.
