03 GSXR Seat


Where would be the best place to buy a stock 03 GSXR 600 seat? I am looking foe a real good price and the vinyl does not have to be perfect.

I looked on Ebay, but I am not sure what other years fit the 03.

I am going to take the new seat to a shop and have them shave it as far as possible and then have them custom cover it .

My current seat is shave, but It looks bad and not it is a little to high, since I added foam to try to smooth it, plus the carbon fiber material did not work, so I out the stock vinyl back over it

I got one on E-Bay!
Check it out! It is shaved for short legged people like you and my wife.
I sold the 600 and she is getting a SVS sooner or later.

Hey I've told many people this on TWF... it's a balancing of needs... you need it to be lower cause you're short, but do you need it to feel good on your toosh?

There is nothing wrong with going on your own and shaving your seat!! I like originality in a person. With all of the emphisis placed on bikini areas these days and folicals hanging out and such, I think it was wise to ensure your had less on your seat to deal with.

No, he tried to . There is a place here locally in El Paso that does custom seats for every type of bike. I was gonna see if they can redo the R6 seat. Haven't decided yet though. I know they are cheap too.
