Hi Guy's,


Thanks for all the replies. I have been doing some research and i may give adding the foam to the seat a go using closed cell foam. I'll take the saddle cover off and stick more foam on it and shaving excess off then re upholstering the seat together again.

Alternatively, i've also contacted an upholstering company lol.

Gave my seat to a local upholster for modification. He did excellent job. After 11 years I am finally happy with the seat. It is flat-ish front to back and left to right and 2cm higher. After testing modified Versys seat, ZRX seat went for modification too.

Hi Maverick,


In regards to the Motowerk footpeg lowering block, is it just the brakelever nut you need to get additionally for it to all function properly?

I didn't have to buy anything extra from memory (long time ago) I adjusted the brake lever to suit.

And here.  Just don't forget to adjust the brake switch too, or it'll be on all the time.

Taller seat, beads and MotoWerk lowering blocks:



If you ignore the two idiots in the background, Rob's Mk2 has an even taller seat (plus pad), beads and those lower footpegs he mentioned:

  Two guys trying to 'embrace the day' and they weren't even drunk  :008: :008: .

  That was a good day  :37: .

 The pad under the beads is temporary. Got some new foam to redo the seat this winter, so with luck it won't pack down so much.
