Looks good if it works, but for a few hundy more you could have a BOSS seat and be done.MeanMike said:My sled is pretty uncomfortable for me on long rides (I'm 6'2"). After riding some really bad trails last year my back was killing me. I rode a friends rev for a little while and it was much more comfortable than my 98 machz. Well, after some searching here, I found some pics of a rev seat on an older chassis and decided to give it a try. I still have to make a support to go under the seat in the middle and I'm trying to find an 03 rear lower panel with the brakelight to finish it all off. After buying a new seat and trunk cover off of ebay I'm in for $200 plus whatever the tail light panel costs. Much cheaper than the boss seat.
I've made some cardboard templates, that I'll transfer to plastic and attach to the stock rev seat frame. I'm bending up some aluminum bracing to hold the extra plastic on with and it will stretch down past the seat to bolt the front to the sides of the tunnel. I had to trim the front a little to match the tank better and trim the foam accordingly. When it's done, I'll have the stock seat cover modified for the extra panels and the cut at the tank. It sits about 2" to 3" higher and is a little more firm than the stock ck3 seat. I'll add some bar risers to compliment it.
I got the idea from this thread. http://www.dootalk.com/forums/index.php?sh...484&hl=rev+seat
So I can't any credit for the idea. Hopefully it will make this sled much more enjoyable to ride.
I a BOSS on my old 00' Mach Z and it was awsome!!!
