    how are you guys stapling the new seat on?? regular big squeeze handle stapler?? I don't think I'd want the seat any wider, I'm short so I need all the leg reach I can get, even on the Dub

    Fred had a hand one that worked for him. I had bought a new one at HD but it didn't work very well for me. I ended up getting an air stapler from HF but I already had an air compressor. It was the bomb.

    My thoughts.

    I have the "Gripper" if this is the same thing as Embossed.

    Doesn't keep me from sliding forward as much as I thought or would like but it must work because when I try to slide back in the seat it pulls my pants down (i.e. plumbers crack). Actually, not that bad but I do have to lift my hind ender so my trousers don't get pulled down.

    Riding comfort of the seat, in general, is unmatched to what I've used before, which include stock (2 hours before sorebutt, Maddog or Coleman pad (4 hours before sorebutt), and Seat Concepts (6-8 hours before sorebutt).

    I like it.

    I have bad hips. I could make it about 15 minutes with the stock seat / about 30 minutes with the stock seat with the coleman pad on it and with one of PlacerLodes seat concepts seat double that. (could be longer, but I stop at all donut shops I pass along the way)

    It was a definite reduction in pain.

    Thank you Fred and God Bless ya brotha!!!

    ***still want to know how many covers were in the car...

    I like to use 1/4" staples with my Makita LXT18v cordless stapler (dang stapler is too expensive though!) it helps to warm the seat pan in the sun or if you live where there is little sun heat it up near your furnace etc it greatly softens the plastic so the staples penetrate easier

    I used 3/8 and 1/4 staples with a hand stapler. The staples didn't go in all the way so I finished tapping them in with a hammer!

    I am short as well and it does not effect me at all.

    I stapled my stock seat cover with a standard Arrow stapler. Looks like hell but it works and you cant see the staples when the seat is on the bike.

    The position of your hand using the Powershot can control a lot of recoil so staples penetrate deeper compared to traditional Arrow-type staplers. images-3.jpeg
