Question & Pic Request: Racing seat foams!

Question: Does the generic racing foam seats leave a black stain mark on your leathers from sliding (left/right)?

Does it tear apart easily after so many trackdays?


Pic request: Just curious what creative (if any) type of racing seat foams you guys have on your track bikes.

How about, if someone owns a GP Tech seat can you post a pic of it please?

mine was a closed cell foam sheet that I picked up somewhere.... cant remember where.
I cut it out by hand and then shaved it down with sand paper.
it never left any streaks on my leathers, but then my suit is black and gray.

Damn bro! Good job! That looks sweet. I wish it came in black though.

Did you use a reg. scissor to cut it? And which sandpaper grit did you use?

I believe they are, either way the sharkskinz foam is good stuff.
IIRC I used something like 500 grit sandpaper for sanding, and a standard razor blade to get the initial shape.
