Seats

Hey, guys. I'm looking forward to picking up a Rebel 500 as my first bike. However, I'd like to replace the seat. Can anyone point me toward some good aftermarket seats for the Rebel 500? Thanks for the help.

Andy,

Welcome to The Forum....

My experience with after market seats is that you are better off going to a local automotive upholstery shop and have them add foam and a custom cover. It is less expensive than any of the current offerings that I have seen and it will look good.

Thanks for your response, Kenny.

So far, I'm most interested in this seat, but you suggest a great idea. I'll look into it!

Andy,

Be aware that the one you linked to is a seat COVER only (and a rather expensive one) and it's not a complete seat.

Do a forum search for "Corbin", that should lead you to seat related threads.
