Will try n did out a pic if i can.

But extra layer(s) of cushioning can be done on the stock Pulsar's seat, so why go for a Bullet's seat ?

PS: I know that Bullet's seat is more comfy !

Default want to modify my Avenger 180 for comfort

Hello friends,

I'm considering modifying my 2005 Bajaj Avenger 180.
My complaints:
1) the seat becomes very hard and uncomfortable for long rides, specially the pillion
2) the rear shock absorbers are jerky
3) I prefer an 'open' helmet, can't think of any way to lock it on the bike
4) rear brakes are not quite responsive
5) a nice dull black paint job
6) any way to dull the vibrations that I feel on the handle?

I would appreciate your inputs for this project.
Please also keep in mind that I don't want to alter anything in the body as such.

Thanks!
Rohan

Default Re: How to increase the Seating Comfort of a Motorcycle?

Corbin is one of the top companies in the world that makes gel seats for bikes and their products have a large and loyal fan base.

Check out their products here.

They are expensive but their customers swear by these seats.

Hey Rohan,

Don't know much about the Avenger so can't help you with the mechanical questions like jerky shocks and vibrations. However, for the question on the helmet.

You could get an open helmet with a D-ring and a helmet lock like this one.

You can route the lock through the D-ring and attach the lock to the pillion back rest.
