Well, let me start this by saying I personally like BADX!

I had my seat modded last fall by BADX. If you want to stay away from this trouble maker see the link below. I could not believe how much difference the Riders Choice made. I used to ride 100 miles and I would have to get off the bike and walk off the butt burn and leg cramps. Then I had the seat modded.

Now, I take off and ride until I hit the reserve. Then I fill up and ride until I hit the reserve. This just happens over and over and over again.

That is where the problem with BADX started.

My wife tells me if I ever stay home long enough she is going to leave me. I am burning gasoline like I never did. That may cause me a bankruptcy! And I now own stock in Dunlop. (Which is not making me any $$$).

Oh, I saved a bunch of money with the seat mod but nothing is free and now I am PAYING the price.

Oh! And one last thing! I wanted the memory foam mod and he talked me out of that to save me money. Now I want to send my spare seat to him to get the memory foam mod done and it has been loaned about twenty people down the chain and several hundred miles away from me. Go figure!

See what I mean?

He is just a trouble maker. :D

The first seat I had him mod.... got it back...... looked the same. I'm thinking I got "took". Oh well, maybe just a cheap lesson.

Got it on the bike and went for a ride and it didn't really feel any different.

At this point I'm a little bummed out but what the heck, at least it isn't any worse.

Next day I end up running 350+ miles. MAN WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!!!

I played hookey from work on the next day (Monday) and did 400+ miles. Even thought about taking off on Tuesday but it was raining cats & dogs. Oh well, might as well go to work. :roll:

The seat mod was cheap enough, but it's costing me $$$ in fuel and "road food".

BadX's seat mods are EVIL!!! :wink:

it's killing me right now not having the seat....but luckily that nail in the rear tire makes it easier to not hop on the X w/ a towel for a seat :(

I could not agree more. Since BadX did the rider's choice on my seat, my monthly gasoline bill has gone way up. I have missed countless hours of work due to leaving early to get a longer ride in. I also had him stud the seat to match my saddlebags, so now I spend alot more time in the garage staring at the bike when I should be in the house paying my bills, cleaning, etc. All of these issues just since the seat mod.

Stay away from BadX. His seat mod will cost you lots of problems!!!

His name ain't 'BAD'X for nothing.
I, too, cannot peel my butt out of that seat until the little orange light is on for many miles.

Very very BAD man.

Some people just gotta try to start somethin.
BEST mod ever done to mine. Allen is the best. And as soon as I can find another stock seat mine is going back for a new cover.
