So had a sore butt from the last overniter and decided this winter to add some gel to the seat. Found saddlemens web site sell just the gel pads, to add after cutting out some of the original foam. Just wondering if there may be a better site, or someone here has done this.

Cost me $150 dollars for shipping and the work but I had Spencer's in Florida do my drivers seat area in the gel that goes in aircraft pilot seats. I can do a couple hundred miles now before my but needs a break. I'm a heavy boy!
That's just another chose. Some people have successfully did their own.
I wouldn't put gel inserts in a motorcycle seat. Left in the sun they heat up and take forever to cool down. When it's cold, they stay cold.
You're better off having some quality foam put in. Good move having Spencer redo the seat...but skip the gel.
no to mention, hot gel is more squishy and less firm and cold gel is too firm for too long. I took the gel out of my home made seats about a month after I used it. too hot, too old, and only when it was like 70 degrees would the gel feel the way I wanted it to.
Id just mod the padding itself....should have 2 foams in there...a yellowish and a green....take a lil green from the crotch end, cut a lil yellow out where yer tailbone goes, and add the green to there.....easy and free....costs you some staples to recover.....
