Seat option for the z125 from HMRacing

http://www.hmracingparts.com/_p/prd1/4554202271/product/kawasaki-z-125-pro-seat-v-1

There is another thread about ordering from this company I had posted in
This thread is just about reviewing the seat

So lets keep it at that





Photos of the seat
Its a good copy of the original seat pan










its much lighter then stock

Its also pretty soft, im tall but I think I will be able to sit in the molded area nicely can't do anything right now as its been raining all day

Its so soft even if I scoot back a touch it pushes down easily
its not rock hard where it would be uncomfortable so I don't think you need to worry about the hump

I had to transfer a rubber stopper and foam pad off original seat pan
along with the tool bag

you could install the passenger strap looks like you will need to screw it into the plastic seat pan, but im not going to right now
I only use that strap to get it on and off my swingarm stand
so if it gets too hard then I will put on the strap to help with that


the stitching looks straight, and in line

my only concern is the little red plastic tag
looks like its just glued on, you can see evidence of glue around it
and it did peel back a touch
hopefully if it does fall off the glue residue could be removed easily

would suck if it ruins the material if the tag falls off and leaves a glossy mark

if its hot glue maybe

but im not sure what it is
im not really sure how seats are made, what glues are used

I could try to message the seller, but they may only sell the items and may not know how its made

I like the HM racing better, and ironically enough it looks more like batman armor compared to Dark Knight Street's :grin2:

took a ride with it today, seemed fine
but won't know until I do a lot more riding

I think I may be forward a touch more then stock
because of how they force you to sit where they want
but I can make myself scoot back a little and it will soften and allow me to do that

but so far it wasn't anything annoying with the 5 min ride I did


later I will measure it to stock see if it lowers the riding position
I think it does

I did a long ride tonight, all the way until 1am

the seat is fine, no discomfort
im 6'1"
And I notice my knees sit lower on the gas tank, so I don't get that corner pressing into them because I think its cut lower then stock

Can't imagine it being comfortable if your knees are just hitting those tank ridges every time you ride, not sure how shorter riders will like this reduction in seat height.

I never really notice a problem and mine are crammed upon that ridge when i sit up close.
