I like that seat. The stock seat is the only thing I don't like about the Rebel, and it's not so much the seat but the location. It's a few inches too far forward. I wind up sitting between the two seats, and it is extremely uncomfortable. The back edge of the front seat6 is very sharp. On longer trips I tend to use the passenger pegs, which allows me to lean forward enough to take some of my weight off the back edge of that seat. I know there has to be an answer, but I know nothing about upholstery, so I don't even know what exactly needs to be done. I could wind up spending a lot of money and actually making it worse, if that is possible. I have thought about buying a used front and rear seat, removing the stock seats, and letting an upholstery shop see if they could come up with something. I want to keep the stock seats because I have a nearly new 2016 Rebel.
