Instead of forking out the money for something more comfy than my stock KLR seat, I decided to rebuild what I had. I've got champagne taste, but a beer budget. Bottom line: I wanted a dished saddle and good foam, but didn't want to fund Corbin's kids' college. Cost of Materials used $11. -spray adhesive -laminate underlayment (waterproof) -8# carpet padding (it's more firm than stock KLR seat foam) Step 1: Take cover off seat. Cut down old foam. The KLR was more of a motocross seat (tall and narrow) so I brought it down from 4.75 inches to 1.5 inches with a sawzall and a long blade. Step 2: Spray glue on remaining seat foam. Set 2 layers of 8# carpet padding on seat. Let it dry. Then cut the carpet padding to the shape of the seat. Step 3: Shape the seat with whatever you have. I used a grinder and it made a mess. It will take me longer to clean up that mess than it took me to do this whole project. I shaped a fairly deep saddle into the seat and then sat on it a little after each bit of cutting. I wanted it to fit my butt perfectly. Step 4: Wrap it with a waterproof underlayment that goes under laminate flooring. I did 2 layers to cover up my not so perfect job of grinding the 8# carpet padding. It smoothed out the lumps, and adds a waterproofing. Step 5: Now the difficult part of the job. To make the seat fabric stay down inside the saddle and not bubble up when you pull it tight to staple it ... you have to glue it in place. Lay the old seat cover on. Begin with the saddle area. Use your spray glue, and let it really dry before you pull and stretch and staple it underneath. As it was drying, I used a little weight to hold the inside curves of the saddle down. I used a 7 year old 72 lb little girl who can't get enough of sitting on the bike. Step 6: Pull the edges tight around the bottom of the seat and staple the seat cover underneath. I basically cut off 2 inches from the height of the seat ... and it helps me a bit to plant my whole foot on the ground at stops, or while pushing through the snow this week. This worked well and looks like a custom seat ... except for the Kawasaki logo down the side of it. I've got great pictures I'd like to load ... but can't. Is ADV not compatible with Mac?
