    Gen 3 seat for track

    G'day

    I'm finding my stock seat a bit too squishy for track work. Sat on an instructors track prepped Gen 3 and he had a race fairing including a foam seat pad on it (plus a different shape tank which was great for locking on to). It was great.

    I am wondering if there are any options out there other than putting a race seat unit fairing on to get a much firmer seat? I was thinking that maybe I could buy a used OEM seat and strip the cover and soft foam off it and shape and stick a foam pad to it.

    Thoughts?

    Just put on some used road fairings. I could just put a race tail on I suppose.

    Ah, interesting. I had only found US based ones. Damn expensive though! Could put a race tail and seat pad on for that. However, it does look very much like what I’m after.

    Looks like the HP race seat also need an €80 mounting kit as well.

    I had one fitted to my previous Gen 3 and it was brilliant. You can order one from any BMW dealership.

    I have successfully used a CRC short seat and mount with OEM bodywork.

    Re: Gen 3 BMW HP Race Seat

    I just checked, getting all 4 parts together is cheaper than the 3 you'd need from CRC...

    I hadn’t clocked that the CRC short seat would work with the OEM fairings. That looks like a good option as well then.

    Both options mean I don’t need to do any painting of fairings which is handy.

    Thanks chaps
