My 2008 Tiger came with a low seat and I have long legs!
« on: 21 August, 2019, 04:23:34 PM »
So rather then sell it and try and buy another one, I took it to my local upolsterer who added 3/4 inch foam and 1cm of memory foam all over.

He couldn't use any part of the original cover.  Wouldn't sit flat, he thought it may have been heat moulded. So glad he didn't.

I just said a bit of orange stitching to match the bike would be great. He used two different vinyl. All for 95.

Very pleased with it.

His name is Marcus at Saddlesorted, based in Badgeworth, North Somerset, UK.  Not sure, real friendly guy, worth an ask.

Thanks m8, recommendations are good. I've had a couple done by Dave at Digger seats, Newport & one at Tony Archer, Huddersfield, no complaints, all good.
