    Ideally, I would love to find a RDL heated seat with backrest.

    I know its a long shot, just figured I would put it out there.

    I have not seen anything in a long time. There was an RDL on Facebook last week. However, the owner could not ship to the US. It sold within minutes anyway.

    Is there a particular reason you don't just order one from RDL?

    I was hoping to find something cheaper.

    I would be willing to try a Corbin if the price was right.

    Gotcha!  I imagine even a used RDL in good shape is still going to set you back a pretty penny.  What about taking your stock seat and having it rebuilt, reshaped and recovered?

    Not a bad idea Merritt.

    Any recommendations?

    Not in your neck of the woods but I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that there is somebody that specializes in modifying motorcycle seats close to you.  Google it and I'm sure you'll find someone.  Up here in Calgary, there are a few people that do it and we are a city of 1.5M people.  It will definitely be more cost effective too.  Let us know how you make out.
