Hey everyone, I'm looking at buying another spyder (RSS) and am looking for all the information I can find on aftermarket seats. I'm a chest level paraplegic, didn't have any seat mods on my old GS as back then, there wasn't much available aftermarket.
I'm looking to open the seat upholstery panel under riders ass and replace foam with supracor or similar and replace upholstery panel with a more breathable material, not sure what yet?:shocked: Tried air hawk etc in the past but struggled with the higher riding position.
Also plan on having removable rider back rest, has to be removable as I transfer on to bike and then I lift my rigid wheelchair onto rack at rear. This requires me to slide around on the whole seat, the reason for "removable" backrest.
Any and all information and creative ideas and of course any that enabled riders have already implemented would be gratefully appreciated

cheers,

I cut out my foam and inserted the air hawk cushion in my seat. It works perfect and you can't even tell it's there. My spider is set up just like your explaining you want yours. I can send you some pics if you want. Mine is a 2011 rss. I don't know how to post pictures but I can send on my phone. By the way I think I am going to sell mine. Need a new van. My # 209-740-3228

Hey mclovin, I'd have been interested in your bike but I managed to get one yesterday I'd been eye balling. I don't know your price but there' a member "MrGimpy" looking a spyder with a handbrake?
I cut out the foam on my old GS and tried airhawk and few other things, wasn't bad but I'm thinking this time I'll take off the panel under my ass and install some supracor and recover with something breathable? Not sure yet.... Also like to add a backrest

cheers
