Seating position on a TTR250

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by lextsy, Apr 17, 2008.

  1. Hi all

    I was wondering why the TTR has such a close seating position. If i sit up on the back i always slide down everytim i brake.

    Does anyone know any fixes for this i.e. different seat?

  6. Gripper seat covers are just a vinyl sheet type product that you replace the original seat cover with and staple into place. You can buy it at Ringmaster Images (don't know their number). You might also find an acceptable substitute at a vinyl place like Clark Rubber?

  8. well to be honest i already want to sell it.

    I just sold my cbr250rr and after buying this bike I decided i want to buy another road bike but am short on choices. I may just wait a year and buy a cbr600
