Sliding forward.
on: July 21, 2016, 10:10:05 AM
Hello All,

Anybody got suggestions to prevent sliding forward on the saddle.Its set to lowest position at the moment so don't want to interfere with that.
Any suggestions welcome.

Hi there,

This might help:

Or there's Tony Archer, I've used him a few times, you just tell him what you want, then send your seat up to him. It normally takes around a week depending how busy he is. Last time he charged around £70 to recover, and increase the padding on a CBF600.

When I collected mine from the Dealer last Tuesday, even though new, it was set up with the Front in the high position and back side brackets set using the Low bolt holes. I tried putting the front to the low position but found front high and rear low worked best with no sliding forward.

The angle of the seat is surely a design flaw?  I ride with the seat in the lower position and I have 17k mile on mine, the angle of the seat means I am ‘closing’ my pelvis, therefore I’m now having physiotherapy as the muscles at the front of my pelvis have shortened and my gluteus maximus muscles have lengthened  which is causing pain down my left leg!

Just done a couple of hundred miles on my Tony Archer seat, very happy with it. As you can see the material he uses to recover the seat is non slip.



Cheers,

Did you go for gel inserts?

No, just extra padding.

Looks a nice seat, have you got Tony Archer's details?

Thanks Richard
