Rebuilding Stock Seat

Hi All,


I ride a 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100. The seat does not bother me; but my wife complains about it.

Ran across this website and wanted to see if anyone has done this to their bike seat?

We have 20" of snow on the ground so I have some time to do it. Any thoughts or experiences would be helpful.

I agree with 04ctd---Mean City Cycles ---

I learned about him from several Honda VTX forums I am a member on, he is really popular with them. He is not only the HD guy, he is the VTX guy too! Since I have a Mustang on my VTX, I am going to have the seat on my 07 V-Star 1100 done by him in a few weeks. You can call them and talk to them, they are really easy to work with and will not try to oversell you. I was looking at a more expensive option for my seat, but after talking to him, he was up-front and honest, telling me with my size and when I was looking for, the cheaper alternative was the best for me.

One down side is his popularity, you do have to schedule your mod appointment in advance, but I have heard nothing but good things about his work and business practices from the VTX folks.

I guess I'll be the 1st to say my seat was just as bad when I got it back as when I sent it in.

Wow, I am sorry to hear that, and your comments are appreciated! I'll let everyone know how mine turns out once I get it back in mid-march.
