Saddlemen SaddleGel Pads
Ruined my seat cover....
I installed this on a stock 2014 BMW Sertao, I just installed it under the seat cover. It started out great, however after a week the pad made a oily substance seep through the seat cover. It then hardened up the seat. I took it on a 500 mile trip and it made the seat unbearable. I got home and took it out, the pad turned a deep blue color and the pad had deformed on the edges. It also ruined my seat cover, it now needs replaced. I do not recommend this product.

I had a custom shop install this. They carved out foam to place under the bikes existing foam seat rather than on top.. I thought that was brilliant. Vastly improves the cushion effect, while still has firmness for bike feedback on sportier rides. 2014 Suzuki Vstrom 1000, factory seat.

Saddle Gel Pad
Before you start your project:
If you've never done upholstery before you may end up needing two of these like I did. Basically you have a great idea of cutting into your seats foam and putting this in place of it. Well it's not that easy haha...
When all was said and done I cut out the entire middle of my seat and needed ***two gel pads*** to make the seat look good. Install takes about half an hour first try. Once you realize you need to re-do it it takes another half an hour. So an hour. Very simple stuff I've had it on my seat for a while now and it holds form and doesn't move around.

Again maybe I'm r*t*r*e* and everyone else can make those perfect cuts and trims to make this fit nicely without using two, but eh I like it like this.

Worse than stock!
I bought this because my stock seat on my 2008 cbr600rr was hurting my butt after about an hour of riding. Now that I have this thing installed my butt hurts after just 20-30 minutes of riding... I think i'm officially done with gel seats....
Here's a video I made on my install process in case you are curious.

I got the Gel Insert and I cut a place for it. Worked like a champ.

For my Bolt
Purchased it for my Yamaha Bolt. After about 100 miles or so, my back would really start to hurt. My legs would ache and I would have to pull over for a bit to continue. Installed this with the stock seat and much better. Lets you get more miles on the road and is a great alternative to purchasing a new (and expensive) seat.

Your balls will thank you
Please put something between me and this steel seat pan and this 35 year old cushion. I plead to your sense of humanity that you protect me and give me comfort from all this vibration from your 1979 Shovelhead motor. Why not try Saddlemen SaddleGel Pads?
Saddlemen SaddleGel Pads provides great support from vibration and monkey butt. It's super easy to install, just unstaple your upholstery, peel and stick gel on top of cushion, then stable upholstery back to seat pan. Easy!

way cheaper than buying a new seat.
My GF complains about the pillion seats lack of comfort on my SKrr. (I know, I know, "its a track bike", blah, blah)..but I cut a rectangle in the foam of the pillion seat and inserted this gel and viola...a super comfortable seat for her when she wants to join me on my torture device.
