Finally got round to collecting the seat I'd had made last year - what with winter and then lockdown, it's the first chance I'd had.  Bought a new standard seat and took it to a local trimmer who's done work for me previously.  He formed a new hump at the rear, covered it in Alcantara and fitted a gel pad.  Sold the cover and strap to off-set some of the costs.  Damn sight cheaper than a Corbin.  Not been far yet, but it feels more comfy than the stock one.

Nice job on that seat.

I've thought of doing something similar.
I'm not really a fan of how the stock seat overhangs the tail.
My wife will never ride on the back so trimming it similar to what you've done is on my list.

Hey Dave seat looks amazing. The tricolor pinstriping is top notch! I did the license plate relocator as well but what did you do for the turn signals? I like your setup better than what i did. Thx - Mark

Thanks Mark - the seat turned out better than I'd hoped for, and after riding it a bit, it's comfier than the original.  Surprising the support the hump gives as well

I used a KC34 side mount.  They supplied me with relocating brackets which fit directly into the mounting points under the tail.  Although they'd be fairly easy to have fabricated up by a local fabricator
