Aftermarket Seat

Hello all, I'm looking together a new seat for my 02 919. A couple iv seen/heard of are mustang, Corbin, and riches custom seats in Seattle. Any opinions or experience with any of the above or any I failed to mention? Thanks

Grumpy1 has a Corbin with the upgraded ventilation for sale. You may want to PM him.

If you have any interest in just reworking your current seat look up spencer's seat mods... by far the most affordable, and I'm a huge fan of mine.

Just make sure to get a detailed description with 38 pictures detailing every fold, crease, seam, and scuff.

Now. To answer the question at hand. You pretty much named the big ones with the exception of Sargent. Both Sarget and Corbin make a good seat for the 919. Everyone will have a different preference, so, its really up to you. GENERALLY speaking, it goes stock -> Spencer -> Corbin in terms of comfort, but, that's not for everyone. badmoon692008 mentioned Spencer's seat modification. I have heard nothing but great things about Spencer and will be sending my seat there this fall/winter. Great prices and great (reported) results. Just do a search for Spencer Seat Mod.

You failed to mention the unique undulactions that come with natural wear and handling; character derived from nominal interaction with the environment...

Most likely not, but you can use your old oil (as long as it's the right kind) to keep them looking good.

You do not have to change the oil, that's an old wive's tail. Honda motors come sealed from the factory with DoTerra CPTG certified Unicorn Oil (only pressed from the finest unicorn ivory) that was infused with Chuck Norris' sweat to aid in dispersion and filtering.

Just by dabbing a bit of this oil on your seat, you are guaranteed to cure any STD's (the longer you sit, the faster the healing process) as well as make your loins more fruitful and the hair on your chest sexy.

Oh, and you get a manly beard as well as instant karma and 20 coins at the local arcade.

It's a secret. Only those that have unlocked the power of the 5.2 gallon tank and sub $500 Ohlins know about it.

A secret like "stock on PL filters, 59 lb torque the oil filter, hand torque my rear axle and, I don't know, do I have to lube my bearing?"

Not to bring this thread back on topic, but there's also Rocky from Parkland Upholstery [(253) 537-3201]. I haven't had firsthand experience with his seats, but the local shop (south bound honda) highly recommends him. The dealer I talked to said that out of the corbin's, sargent's and others that she's tried, Rocky's are the most comfortable. Oh, and supposedly his prices are much more competitive than just about anybody else's. (this shop has no affiliation with them, she just likes his seats).

It's in WA, just outside Tacoma. It's a real small time place (one guy) but he's supposed to have great quality. It's actually where I'm planning on getting my seat from.
