Custom Seats and Heat

Based on the adage, there are no dumb questions...

When you have a custom seat made, Russel, Mayer, etc., are the new custom seats still heated?

I pick up my GT on Friday, so I'm not sure exactly how the seats are heated, hence the question.

Thanks.

Yes, it's still heated.
There is a heating element between the foam and the cover. They reuse the original element when they build your new seat.

Re: Custom Seats and Heat

In most cases, yes. Rick Mayer, for example, maintains the factory heating elements and system when he builds a saddle. I'll be taking my GT to him in the near future to get one made!
