Make it fit like a glove

Motorcycle communities are a huge resource for any kind of project or help you might need. It’s incredible the amount of stuff people post and the effort they put into it!

arturo3rd on posted some great tips and photos on how to shave down your motorcycle seat for a more comfortable ride.

Things you’ll need:

  • flat screwdriver
  • pliers
  • sharp knife(steak)
  • rough grit sand paper
  • staple gun

I’m unsure if all motorcycle seats are made of the same material so be wary before you start if your motorcycle isn’t a Kawasaki.

Head over to the Kawiforums to see full instructions and pictures on how arturo3rd did it. See the rest of the post for a few more pictures of the job.
