I took a chunk of foam board and sculpted it to raise the seat to the level of the pillion pad.  Then I strapped on a atv seat cover from Wal Mart.  Cost about $20. I am 6ft 2in. that along with Routy controls and I have the most comfortable bike I have ever owned.

I am thinking about taking my stock Savage seat to my auto upholstery guy and having him add some stiff foam to bring it level and take out the dip, then re-cover it... so the rider seat is about the same height as the P pad. Has anybody done that?

Sonny,

I haven't done what you are talking about, but I have been thinking about it.

I would like to remove about half of the foam height from the passenger seat and add foam to the driver's seat to level them out and then have a new cover made. I would like the rolled upholstery for the 1970's banana seat look.

Oh, thank you Huntsville. What you did there is exactly what I had in mind. I'll post a photo once I get it done. Great.

My old '87 vinyl might not take the stretching but if it tears up I have a good upholstery guy who will do me right.

You might be ahead to take what you have and show it to him, before you risk wrecking what he could have used as a pattern. And if the cover crushes the added padding, how is it shaped differently?

I use the atv pad bought mine at wal mart for about $20.  I have it on four of my bikes.  The main reason I like it is because you can experiment with a variety of things under the pad to get the fit just right.  Just having your seat redone is no guarantee that it will be "just right" for your butt.  Soft foam, hard foam, all kinds of stuff can be used to build up the seat.  And the good thing is that you can unstrap it all and you are back to stock!  I generally use double sided tape to hold the padding to the top of the stock seat.  Keep messing around and sooner or later it will be just right.

I like very much the Boneville seat option.
Did you need to do any modification to the frame or fender adjustment was just enough?
Do you have any pictures how the seat was mounted to the frame?
