slippery seat
on: May 21, 2020, 09:20:32 PM
i found this product from a D675 forum. Thought I'd give it a go. I've tried all combinations of spraying on tank, seat and/or leathers. Brilliant. The best application I found was just on the seat. The only drawback is a smear on the tank when I sprayed the tank which easily wipes off. Alot better than permanent tank knee pads.
Be interested if anyone else has tried it and the opinions.

Wow, how we differ in our riding practices.

I prefer the ability to slide over rather than shuffle across. I will sometimes ride in tracksuit pants ( :156: :156:) and it is the most comfortable and productive manoeuvrability for me.  :002:

I did find the 765 seat a bit slippery on the first few rides :003:
But now I have cleaned the bike a few times and just wiped the seat off with a damp cloth with just a very small amount of Car Wash fluid in the water (not enough to get any bubbles) this seemed to have improved the issue  :028: May be Triumph have some kind of polish or similar on the seat from the factory which is a bit slippery  :027:
