INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING SUNMATE
TO CUSTOMIZE A MOTORCYCLE SEAT
A can of 3M74 spray adhesive, foam, and an electric knife for shaping are
all you need.

what riders tell us that at least a ½ of a firmer SunMate material works
well as a base.
Layer the base foam with Medium to Medium-Soft SunMate for comfort
and weight distribution. Your weight and what you are trying to achieve
determine the thickness and support pressure (e.g., Soft, Medium-Soft, Medium,
Firm). Two or more inches of Medium-Soft foam on top of the firmer
foam is the norm. If using only one inch of material, Medium would be the
Many riders use ½ to 1 of Pudgee (green foam) as a layer on top of the
SunMate for the ultimate in comfort. It will also help eliminate vibration.
Because of its gel-like properties, it will move as your body moves.
Use spray adhesive to laminate the foam. Cut and trim it with an electric
knife. Depending on the changes, you can either use the existing cover or
have another one made.
Some riders have removed only the actual sitting area from their existing
seats. This makes the retrofit easier for those who have seats with complex
contours, who dont want to shape the entire seat.
Dynamic Systems sells a soft, elastic waterproof film barrier to put between
the foam and the seat cover. This film is 1½ mil thick and 60 wide
and costs $5.50/yd.
