BASE PLATE/SEAT PAN
Each seat we create is designed from the seat pan up to correctly fit the specific make and model bike. Seat pans will be either a 2up seat for rider and pillion passenger or a solo seat with many having an optional detachable pillion seat that compliments the riders solo seat. Seat pans are built from steel or heavy duty marine grade fiberglass.
We use a high density polyurethane foam that is expertly shaped to flow with the lines of the motorcycle but also to provide ergonomic support and comfort. Understanding the importance of an ergonomic shape is just one of the many reasons Sinister Seats stand out from the crowd. We offer a range of seat styles for your motorcycle to suit your needs and desired look, from a slimed down minimalist look for round town or short rides to a wider more supportive touring style.
All covers are designed and sewn from the highest quality materials. Sewing thread is a UV stable polyester thread that will not breakdown in sunlight.
Vinyl / synthetic leather is the go to material for easy care, it can be cleaned with a damp cloth and is not impacted by sun and rain as other options.
Genuine leather is a great option but does require some work to care for your seat. Leather requires regular conditioning to protect from UV light and moisture. If the seat will be left outside or regularly ridden in the rain, we recommend using a protective cover. We do have some leathers that are designed for outdoor use. If the leather does get wet, do not force dry or leave in direct sunlight as this damage the leather. Leather will patina with age. Never use any petroleum based product on leather.
Exotic hides such as Elephant, Stingray, Ostrich, Alligator and various other hides can also be used for a custom cover.
