OK, this has now become priority #1 for me - basically its gotten to a stage now where its becoming an injury risk for me to just get on the bike - its playing havoc with my back! For those who haven't heard me complain about it - I have an XV250, and the comfortable seating position for me is to sit RIGHT on the back of the seat - any further and I'd be on the pillion seat! This is comfortable for distance from the pegs, etc, but no so good for the back as I'm sitting on a lip - every jar goes straight up my spine. ANYWAY, I want to do something about it - replacing the seat is probably the preferred option, so long as its WAAAY back (some framework probably required for this) OR get the seat re-upholstered - cut the moulding out so its flat, jack up the cushioning and I should be right. I hope. I don't mind paying a fair price for the work to be done properly. Does anyone know of a place/person that can do this ? For health reasons it NEEDS to be in the west (werribee way or surrounds) - I can't take the bike any great distance without suffering back problems, although I can take the seat part anywhere. Some help would be GREATLY appreciated. If I don't resolve this issue fairly soon, I don't know if I will be able to continue to ride. I'm cursing the bike laws which prevent learners from riding something larger - I wouldn't have this problem on a larger wheel base.
