    This item is currently part of the Triumph sale and is available for £51.59.
    Has anyone got one fitted to their Bonneville and what are they like, comfort wise?
    My Newchurch seat is the standard offering and is rather plank like after a couple of hours.
    I like the Burton bike parts seats, but I also like this sale price, just looking for some positive user comments before I take the plunge.

    I have one on my Bonnie and I am very pleased with it. I don’t do long journeys but I do find it far more comfy than the stock seat and at that price it’s a bargain!!!! If you don’t like it you could probably sell it in the spring and get your money back!!

    Thanks for the swift reply BykerBry, can't argue with your logic there.

    Do these fit the carbed Bonnies?

    Hi Callumity,

    As far as I know. All the 790cc carb Bonnies through to the last of the air/oil cooled 865cc EFi Bonnies. Had exactly the same seat fitment.

    Do you remember that fancy Corbin seat I bought then resold? They are advertised on the Corbin site as fitting every Bonnie from 2001-2015.
    Plus some other Triumph models as well.

    I had the original T120 seat re upholstered and re covered, it cost £120 but is so much more comfier than the stock one was. It was worth the expense. That and the bar risers made a big difference to comfort. 11 T120 1.JPG

    It sounded very cheap so not surprised they sold out. May have had just the one.

    Hi Curly,
    https://autoretrim.co.uk/ did my seat they are in Cradley Heath, I used to get bum ache after around 40 mins on the original seat but have ridden with the new seat for over two to three hours with no aching, its definitely a big improvement for me and I'm looking forward to covering some miles come the summer. I don't know what foam they used but it does the trick. The £120 included having the Triumph logo embroidered on the back. I've kept the original cover in for when I sell but it wont be any time soon. I was quoted £140 on the phone but when I took it in they quoted and charged £120.

    You're forgetting that the back of the bike settles down and levels out when my fat @rse is on it.

    No reply from Triumph Chesterfield so in view of other posts about availability I'm writing that one off.
    Your seat looks terrific, thanks for the gen Gazza, time for me to get something sorted.
    Every time I ride back to Burton from Portsmouth I end up with severe arse ache, I can put up with it but why bother when a far superior seat like yours, in appearance as well, is available at a very reasonable cost?
