SPS Seat Woes.

Much as I love my 748 SPS, I cannot get used to sliding forward and ramming my tackle into the tank everytime I brake even slightly.

Any suggestions on how to prevent this?

I was considering a tecnosel seat but, when I eventually managed to find a dealer who could obtain one for a single seater, I was quoted 150!


Cheers,

Moley

Brace your arms when you are braking?

you want a set of the pads from California Superbike school. Highly recommended. Fit on the sides of the tank and give you something to grip to with your legs.

You really shouldn't be using your arms nearly as much as your thighs.

KJ Performance had a blue technosel seat pad for 60 (I think) a few months back - might still be there.
