Hi. I had a 2015 Z1000SX and I now have a 2020 Ninja 1000SX. Essentially they're the same bike and I found they both had pretty uncomfortable seats. I got an auto upholsterer to remove the original covers of both seats on the 2015, take off the original foam, replace it with memory foam, and put on slightly grippier covers. The pillion seat needed 2.5cm/1inch of foam (about twice the original depth). Total price in 2015 NZ$750/US$500/GB375.Hey guys,
Quick recap. On my 2012 Z1000, I quickly upgraded the seats to Corbin. Huge upgrade on the stock.
In 2017, I bought the new Ninja1000. The seats were way better than the stock on the Z, so we decided to keep them. But this year, with 35000km on the clock, maybe because we got older, our bum suffered a bit more. Based on my experience with Corbin, I ordered a set, both front and rear. But somehow, the front seat doesn't fit. I'm shipping them back tomorrow.
Sargent doesn't make the rear so it's no option. Or my wife won't ride with me... hmmm... note to self: think about that for a while...
So how about Kawasaki's gel seat?
On a 2006 Suzuki SV1000S, I had bought the gel seat and seem to remember it was not so bad at all...
Any experience with the Kawi gel seats? Are they any good? Did some of you bought them?
Any inputs will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks all, ride safe.
