If a gash in your seat is stopping you from riding, you are about as pathetic as a freestyler who can’t ride because he doesn’t have the right tattoos and jewelry. Get some duct tape, slap it on your seat and get to practicing. And if I told you that the physics inside the four-stroke engine make it less desirable for free styling in most cases, maybe when your are in school and they start teaching you physics you’ll pay attention instead of drawing sketches of your next tattoo on your inside book cover. Did the gash in the seat cover have anything to do with our Letter Rip offer of a seat cover? I know a girl who offered to ride against Brest Cancer for that seat cover and she makes your begging look a little suspicious.
- Jimmy Lewis Oh, do I look suspicious? I would rather buy a seat cover and you give it to that girl that will ride against Breast Cancer than me get it for this meager letter. I will take the kosher tip for the seat cover until I get a brand new one. Also, I like my bike the way runs and it works perfectly fine for the FMX I do. Other than that, should I buy a Factory Effex TC-4 Seat Cover?
P.S. (Spelling Error on Breast Cancer). I wouldn’t pay a penny for inky tattoos nor stupid body piercings.Right on guy, you got me on the spelling! Send us a photo of you and your bike, with ripped seat and I’ll see if I can figure out the best cover for you. I’d go with gripper in all black so it fits on the cut down to nothing foam you need for leg clearance. The TC-4 has that hump in it for holding you on in the turns and I’m not sure it is the best for FMX. Maybe Chris Denison knows?
-Jimmy LewisFor FMX, I’d go with the slickest seat cover you can find. If the material is too grippy, you’ll snag your feet coming over the seat on double cans (it’s better to have something that your boots will slide on).
Most of the FMXers I know ride two-strokes, but a four-stroke certainly isn’t out of the question; just be sure to turn your idle up pretty high so that the bike doesn’t nose dive when your right hand leaves the bars.
