Hi Guys,

This is my 2nd try at installing a GEL seat. This time I chose to do it on the Ninja 1000. Why??? Cause my a** is killing me at the 20 minute mark.

Here it is, 2 part guide:

I can now ride about 1 - 2 hours with normal comfort. You could likely do better if your younger than me.... It's quite comfy and the mod cost about $80....

Nice vid and instructions. Sorry, where did you get the gel and pad? How many hours, appx?

Thanks!

Thanks, I got the GEL from Ebay:

ULTRAGEL® Motorcycle Seat Gel Pad - Small TR

$37 US / $47 cdn :(

Add shipping, $12. Its a 24" x 20" and 5/8"thick. Comes with the smoothing foam. Took about a week to arrive, customs and all.

Took my time and had to stop here and there for taping but took 3 - 4 hours. The 2 parts I cut out were the cutting of the squares (@30 min) and vinyl re-attach (@15 min), oh and shaping was about another 20 minutes.

Did you want me to ship mine to you via ups or is fed ex better?

I do wish we had something other than gel to use, and Gavin would install it for me.

Nice job on the seat. I'm thinking about doing that, but I can ride for about one in a half to two hours before my butt starts hurting me. But once it starts hurting I'm uncomfortable even if I take a short break.

How true. Once you've passed that point there's no recuperating from it that day.
I think I'm sending mine to spencer soon. He does something similar to Gav.


Speaking of butt pain:
