New Seat for the 919???

I rode mine from Florida to NYC and my ass was killing me. I think I need a new seat. Could you guys suggest what would be a more comfortable one?
And, where could I pick one up used and cheap?

Thanks

I did a gel/ memory foam insert about 5 years ago and it made the stock seat much more tolerable.

A lot of other folks have had good luck with Spencer's seat mod. The other options are a little more pricey.

AirHawk. It's relatively cheap and easy - just throw it on when you need it. I beefed up the mounting straps with S-Biners because I read the original hooks can come loose causing the cushion to fly away when a rider stands up on the pegs.



I also scored a Corbin seat recently from a 919 being parted out. It has no cover but otherwise intact. I don't know if I'll ever get around to doing anything with it so I guess I'd entertain an offer.

I have an AirHawk in the closet.. used it for a while on the stock 919..and for super long rides on the Valkyrie .. I sprung for a Corbin for the 919 and so glad I did.. great upgrade.

I lost all connection to the bike when I tried an Airhawk.
