Padded underwear vs seat pad

I'm still having some difficulty with the rebel seat. My tolerance is building, but I'm investigating alternatives and additions.


There's been discussions of the Airhawk seat pad here on the forum. But I haven't seen any discussion of padded underwear. I found this yesterday.,,Cruiser Skiveez:

A bit pricey, but I seem to have no choice but to spend money so I'm not in pain when I ride (and after). And what about a combination of Cruiser Skivees AND Airhawk seat pad? Personally, I can't stand the look of the Airhawk on the motorcycle.

Just my opinion - You could probably have some extra foam added to your existing seat and be in the same price range (or even less) that you're looking at for the items you mentioned. There's also some replacement solo seats on ebay that are in the ballpark of 100 bucks, but I can't speak for the comfort/quality.

This was my solution.

I have since applied another thin layer of neoprene foam on top to remove the slipperyness. It is very comfortable.

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

For the price of the Skivees you could buy a memory foam pad that you didnt have to wash after every ride!!

I took my seat to a local upholstery shop. He removed the cover and trimmed 1/2" to 3/4" of the original foam. It was very stiff stuff. We then added about 1 1/4" foam that was softer. Now the seat is much more comfortable and only 1/2" or so taller. It looks almost stock. The guy charged me $50 for the whole thing. Very happy with the results.

Im a Trimmer and did a similar thing, recovered in leather and added 1.5 of soft foam under the new cover.
