Sweet Cheeks Seat Support
 
I have been working on this for about a year. Keeping it simple was the hard part. http://cycle-analyst.com/sweetcheeks

Folds up smaller than a pack of cigarettes and can be refilled at any store or gas station with 2 liter bottles.

That looks pretty slick. Has anyone (besides Dualsport) tried these?

Yes, someone has. I need to search better...

Sounds like Sweet Cheeks has more than one way to cover your ass.

Covering my butt on this one. I figure someone will try hauling gasoline without it secured and loose a bottle into the rear wheel at 90mph.

It doesn't matter how idiot proof it's built, somewhere there's a better idiot.

I will have a large box of sweet cheeks at the AMA Renfro Valley dualsport ride this month. Bring your own 2-liters.

shows great promise
 
Good thinking, Dualsport, really good thinking.
I am going out to measure the seat on my Husky.
If someone manufactured DOT approved 2 liter gasoline bottles, it would be even cooler.

That's pretty innovative.:clap

try MSR,a camping outlet ,they used to have red fuel bottles for coleman fuel for backpacking stoves. they are spun aluminum,and good for high,,kinda pressure,and safty rated for fuel. dont know about gasoline though.

MSR bottles are of excellent quality and fine for carrying gasoline (can be used in some of the muti-fuel cookstoves that MSR manufactures), but the largest size they come in is 33oz, roughly 2/3 the diameter of a 2l bottle. I foresee a fitment issue.

Air Pumps
 
I have found a supplier of 2 liter pressure pumps. I tested several and found one that is almost no larger than just the cap. It holds pressure without leaking and is cheap. This allows the sweet cheeks bottles to be pumped tight and still left empty to prevent bouncing on the trails.
WooHoo, these things make a dirt bike seat feel like a Goldwing. :clap

Website is gone. What is a "sweet cheeks"?
It sounds like a seat pad that holds gas?

It's a canvas or nylon dealie that straps over a dirtbike seat. It has pockets to hold two liter pop bottles paralell to the seat making it wider and putting some weight on your thighs and less on your sensitive bits. I think the idea was you could tune the firmness you wanted by how much water you put in. I don't think gas would be a good idea that close to the muffler. :huh
I'd like to have one, those of us with TE610's could use something until we get our renazco's built. :1drink

This has been getting some play over on ThumperTalk, and there is current ordering information on the thread:

http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=655418

You can see my post on the third page, but I'll briefly say here that combined with an AirHawk, this is pretty much the best thing ever for long rides on a bike with a narrow seat.
