Temporary seat...

This Sunday it is going to be warm enough for one of those last rides before winter totally takes over. The problem is, I sent my seat to Sargent to get re-done. Looked around the house and came up with this solution. Okay; lets hear those wise cracks. IMO this seat is still more comfortable than the one h_ryder rode to the shin-dig on!

It beats the sh.... out of sitting in the house all day. Good thing posting this early to give RC90 the chance to prepare to give you a rub down after riding that all day

Seriously though I got some of that put back from house repairs if you have good results let us know

That front clip for the seat mount looks like it may cause some discomfort.

That's awesome... Man after my own heart. Ride on!!!! It was 60 today and I was able to get a few hours of saddle time (not so much STYROFOAM time).

I've got a spare stocker in KY. But, that thing looks too comfy. H would probably like a piece of plywood...........with some nails in it.

I know where you're coming from; I used a folded up flannel shirt for a seat once.

My pillow had a tag that was dangling and melted to my lovely Staintune's.

I wasn't happy.

I wonder how those hard tail guys do it. They must love a good rump pounding

Ya gotta do what ya gotta do sometimes!



That's a cheap Chinese H4 replacement headlamp for my old Yamaha XS650. I was waiting for some paint on rubber coating to dry I had applied to the inner side of the chrome trim ring and basil to reduce that vibe that come from the headlight on the 9er. Man I hate that vibe! BTW, it didn't work.
What seams to have worked is 4 or 5 pieces of foam adhesive weather stripping around the chrome ring. When the headlight is screwed in place, the foam keeps tension on the headlight and reduces the vibe noise. I know some have used inner tube rubber.. but I don't really know where to put that? Also read some one filled the bucket with bubble wrap.. that would work same as the foam stripping. Anyone got something better?

Oh yeah.. I have officially hi-jacked this thread.

No, I think this thread is all about ghetto makeshift stuff. You're right on track.

I put two layers of electrical tape all the way along the the lip around the headlight bucket. At the top you have to tape around the slot where the tab fits into on the headlight ring. This seems to have stopped the buzz, I never hear it now. What I have a problem with is my cooling fan rattling to all hell when I am engine braking, it is almost as bad as the headlight buzz.

Hey can you provide some quick pics? I've been trying to solve the buzz for ages

Not as good as a pic but close:


Just put elec. tape around the lip the red arrows are pointing to.
If it doesn't solve the buzz just add more...and so on. I messed with it about three times before the buzz was completely gone. It kind of ends up like Rev. Cycho's, where you have to press on the headlight, then put the screws in and it is so tight (under tension) that it can't buzz.
