Can you all help me out?
Iím working towards getting my 2000 jackal / v-7 Lemans hybrid ready for some longer rides (this year I hope!).
See pic below for reference.
One thing I need to figure out for sure is the seat.
This seat starts killing my tail on rides over 30-45 minutes. (See my trick beaded seat mod)
Itís an older seat so the foam isnít fresh but Iím wondering if itís just a little too narrow and the step is right where I sit. One data point to consider. I still have the floorboards on the bike so my feet are a bit I front of me rather than under me. I feel like that might be part of the problem (angle of hips etc.)
Iíve been debating getting it refoamed and flattened / widened a bit. I worry Iíll mess up the original. Generally speaking I like to leave old parts alone and find spares to modify. Which will get expensive in this case unless someone has a cheap v-7 sport pan laying around.
Is this the price I pay for the stunning lines of a v-7 seat?
Are there other seats I should be thinking about? Or something else outta the box?
Whatís the most comfortable tonti seat? And would it fit my Lemans tank.
Iím open to ideas!
