Custom tank requires a custom seat

The stock seat needed to be modified to fit the new gas tank. The seat needed to be shortened 5 inches and narrowed up to fit into the gas tank channel.

There is considerably more rise in the seat with this gas tank, the stock seat is basically flat. We took a heat gun to the plastic seat pan then pressed the seat into position until it cooled to gain the shape we needed. It was important to gain the proper shape in order to keep the seat cover from bunching if it were flexed the seat to fit. Now the seat is the proper shape.

Next was a secure way to fasten the seat. The stock location for the fastener is covered by the gas tank and now the shorter seat would not reach it anyway. A fabricated bracket and it will now securely fasten.


The seat is now getting the magic touch of James Renazco at Renazco Dual Sport Seats.
