So I just bought my first bike, a 2005 Rebel 250 from another member of this site who I happen to work with. I grew up around them as I had dirt bikes growing up and my dad had a Shadow for as long as I can remember and my uncle had a Goldwing, but this will be MY first bike. I've got some mods in mind.. First is a custom seat... While I somewhat like the factory seat I HATE the factory passenger seat. I mean its barely big enough for my kids to ride on... My buddy was nice enough to bring me a seat off a much larger Yamaha bike. It's a one piece and I'm planning on adapting it to fit the Rebel. I know I'm going to have to notch the bottom corners of the seat because of the shocks. My plan is to hopefully sculpt the seat to fit right in top of the taillight without having to slide it back... Anyone ever tries anything like this?
