What is the best seat cover for my bike!!!

I don't know about the rest of you, but after a little the bottom of my spine kills me. I am wondering if anyone knows what the best cover is for my 750. I think it is the best option just to get a cover instead of a new seat. Thanks!!

I have the air chambered seat cushion. I used it a lot when I had a stock seat. I dont have a stock seat anymore. They sell on ebay and amazon $30-$50.00.

I think scuba is refering to the Airhawk seat pads:

Don`t know anyone who has a Butt Buffer seat pad but they sound like they should be an improvement over the stock seat:

I have a piece of sheepskin I`m going to try this summer, but I suspect Spencer may get my seat to rebuild after this riding season:

You can try many things, A sheep skin will help alot or a bead pad. Sounds funny but keeps air flow between seat and you.
I have a Airhawk as well and great also.

Nice in the summer too.....


When you say "cover" you mean pad I assume. A cover is what you use when your not on the bike or when you are re-covering the seat with new material.

Abit cheaper than a new seat is having the stock one re-padded by Spencer:

I use an AirHawk on long trips over 300 miles. But I fine the seat a lot better than most bikes I've been on.
