I decided to cut my comfort seat as Dave S did with his. Here is how I did it:


I first lined the mugellos play side panels to know where it goes. Then I tried my best to line up where to cut and continue the line of the tank. Masking tape was perfect for this.



I used a flat screwdriver, also a knife, to take these staples of and a pliers to pull them out. I just pulled out the ones that was inside the cutting line. (You can pull out the rubber in the center of he picture)



Marking the backside and then pull the cover to the other side. To be sure, I measured both side using a reference point to be precise. There is a plastic cover that covers the foam. Just cut this along the edge so you can pull it over again when you going to staple the seat cover back again. That's what I did.


Using a dremel to cut the plastic. I also used the sanding tool for the dremel to rounding the edge. Be careful with the foam.



I used a knife to cut the foam, leaving it a bit higher then the plastic to be able to fold it over the edge.



Using a staple to attach the seat cover from the inside. Stretch it a little, you should be able to see how the cover goes with the foam and judge by how much you want to stretch.


I managed to get both side pretty aligned with each other. Just use the same reference point when you're double checking the line of both side.

Then you're pretty much done!

This is the end result. Really happy how it turns out, and pretty pleased that I managed to continue the line of the tank and not have a big gap between the seat and the panel. I also wanted the whole curve of the seam to be visible and not hidden underneath or on the backside of the seat.

Thanks Graham! Yes, mr Sittimat is a great guy. International customers should contact him with this mail [email protected].
It took a while, but I wasn't in a hurry. Living in Norway, you can't ride in this weather anyways :p

When they sent the panels, it took just 2 weeks to get it.

Yes, by Paypal! I think they sends out their product when they have enough order or something. Especially if you have some custom parts, like the seats they offers.

Juicebox What is the trick to removing the left side panel? Did you have to remove the rear shock? I was thinking I would just need to remove the 3 screws holding it and pull it out, but the rear shock is in the way.

I've had to become intimately familiar with removing and replacing that side panel...

- Remove the three screws.
- Lift the locating peg at the lower left out of its grommet on the frame by lifting the panel towards the outside of the bike. (You can't see this, you have to feel around the backside of the panel for it.)
- Move the panel down the suspension unit and bend gently until it clears the under-seat panel. It then lifts out.

Installation is the reverse... Be sure not to push the grommet through its hole in the frame.
It's kind of a fussy job but ultimately not particularly difficult. :D

I eventually figured this out. LOL Thanks for the writeup. I did this a few month back and love the look so much better.
