    '09 gel seat mod to fit '07

    My understanding is that the '08 and onwards Triples had the seats redesigned to be more comfortable. This makes sense, as if you look at an '07's seat, there is a lot of wasted space along the edges where they could have made the seat wider, but didn't, presumably for aesthetics' sake.

    Has anyone had success with modifying an '09 gel seat to fit an '07? It doesn't necessarily have to be pretty. I just want something that will be comfortable on those 3+ hour rides.

    Idk if others have done this modification. I obtained a Sargent seat and purchased padded biker shorts. I was able to do 8 hours of riding no problems.
    Ride with confidence. Not your ego.

    I bought a little airhawk pad before the '09 ecr. Discovered the stock seat on my '07 was plenty comfortable without it. Really is a great seat for putting on miles.

    It won't work. The two seat pans and the mounting points on the subframe are different.

    Send your stock seat to this guy. Heard nothing but great things about his mods..
