DIY Gel seat insert - Aprilia Pegaso Trail

  • Hi everyone

    Just fitted a gel pad seat insert to my Aprilia Pegaso Trail, posted similar photos a while ago when I did my ZRX seat, but hopefully posting using flickr will make them more accessable. The photos should be self explanatory, took less than 2 hours to complete. Gel pad was under £20 so did not break the bank!

  • Bruce, good job again.

    Three Dawg, When I had the Tiger I bought a pair of Moto Skiveez and initially thought they gave a bit of added plushness. Eventually though I decided the padding felt constricticting and uncomfortable. Consigned to "back of the drawer"

    When the GT came along I tried them again -and if any seat would have benefited the GT OEM would but alas they were no help.

    It did get me thinking about shorts again thoughj.

    I took a pair of cycling shorts and cut out the padding. Long legs and high back now seem gto me to be the way to go.

    I have now worn the padless cycle shorts a few times and i Do like them. Base layer tucks in and has no chance of easing up and the long legs do feel comfy on the bike.
