919 seat

So what are my options to make my 919 seat a little more comfortable? does anyone know if they sell a seat kit like they do for offroad or is it just buy the corbin seat?

There are some great threads on here for a bunch of great do-it-yourself seat covers and such.

Here are some pics of my Sargent seat I had made before finding WT.

I had the '03 seat reworked by Frank Turnier here:

The comfort cell foam was added and the seat lowered. What a difference! Unless you want your seat recovered, I would suggest Spencer.

I had the seat for my Buell re-worked by Loren at Baldwin Motorcycle Saddles

Baldwin Motorbike Saddles - Handcrafted Custom Motorcycle Seats

He did great work... lots of options, and he customizes your seat to your height, weight, etc. At the time, I asked him if he could do seats for the 919, he said he would just need a seat pan to start with.

how much does a seat rework and recover cost, on average?

I think a Sargent seat is around 350 or so if you send them your seat. If you are having problems with the stock seat then it'll be worth it, believe me.

Spencer's Seats said he'd do mine for under 100. Look him up. I have an extra seat I picked up I'm gonna send to him. Keep you posted.

+1 on Spencers. I had mine done last spring and it's a big improvement over
stock. He doesn't replace the cover so yours has to be in good condition. Be
sure you find a box it will fit in and pack it well.
