Thanks for the idea. I will do some checking to see what type of mesh seat covers are available.
Thanks for the suggestion. I had not really looked at the Seargent seat option for the KLX, but will now explore it along with the Seat Concepts full replacement seat. Did you notice any change is seat height with the new Seargent? I don't need a "low" seat, but do not want to add much additional height to the stock setup.
There's a good brand everyone likes, but I can't recall the name. Some are really cheap...
Did not notice any change in height.
Nope. That's an inflatable one. I have one I cut up in my garage. I think the label is still there... let me look...
Edit: Sit 'n Fly...
Just oiled up my air filter for the first time and wondering what you guys think of the look of it? I sprayed maybe a quarter of the can onto it and kinda worked it around. Figured the spray would’ve come up more as a fan pattern but was just a straight shot. Tried to massage it in a bit. Am I supposed to spray the inside too? It’s super oily after drying for 20 minutes. Isn’t it supposed to be a bit tacky?
thanks for you input. All my other bikes have had paper filters or k&n. Never had a foam one before
Seems kinda speckled too for some reason?
Anyone I've known who has bought one has no regrets. I never rode on one, but a friend did and it worked well for him. Air channels and it widens the seat with solid material... all for what used to be $20 at Walmart, no idea how much now.
Put it in a plastic bag and smush it around to spread the oil through the entire filter uniformly, while keeping your hands a bit goo free. It doesn't really dry. The propellant evaporates, but the oil is still moist and sticky. When you install the filter and mount it, put a thin layer of grease on the surface of the filter where it contacts the air box, seals against any gaps there.
Some riders have a couple filters and keep one ready to install in a plastic bag too.
Great tips thanks! I’ll definitely do that. You think regular old chassis grease would work? That’s the only stuff I have on hand.
I might as well throw this here too: https://advrider.com/f/threads/klx300r-klx250s-suspension-and-exhaust.1467036/
I’m selling a complete Stroker, Inc. suspension, and some KLX300R exhaust bits.
That's what we used at the shop and what I've used all along. Doesn't take a lot.
Most excellent. Cheers Markk
Sorry, I couldn’t resist!
Thanks. Ordered the seat cover on Amazon. Will post how it works once I install it.
Installed Coleman ATV Maddog seat cover tonight. Have not had a chance to ride with it yet. Only modification I made was to remove the front strap and replace it with two ball bungees (without the balls) knotted together so I could tuck the strap mounts under the seat.
Hows it feel on the hiney? It doesn’t look to comfortable, but looks are deceiving...
I think the big help is the widened seat and the air channels.
Nice part too is you can always take it off when not needed.
