        I will try again. I emailed him about a month ago but never heard back.
        Thanks

          I sent my GoldWing park bench to John on Monday and received a beautifully padded and comfortable seat back on the following Monday. The smartest thing Honda could do is contract John to make every Goldwing seat the way it should have been in the first place. Thanks to John for doing quality work at a reasonable price.

            Another Nail in Honda's coffin for me.

            I installed a 07 Heated OEM seat on my 04 back in 09. I still like how it feels on a 14+ hour day..

                John says it has the exactly same amount of padding. No more comfortable, just better looking.

                  The upgraded Honda seat is a joke! All that’s done is the back (driver-rest) portion is padded higher. That is it . . .

                    Yep, I am afraid that is all you get for $900.

                  After a couple of months on this seat i can now feel what you are all talking about the stiffness in this seat. Saving up the funds to ship mine in the upgrade.

                    I had John from WingSoft upgrade my seat at WingDing last year and when he finished it was almost as bad as Honda's version. I took it back to him the next day and he basically said, that is how it is and would not attempt to adjust it any further. Not everything is all peachy with John or the WingSoft upgrades. I just wanted to make sure the forum had an opposing view and didn't think everything with WingSoft was fantastic.

                      I suspected the fix wouldnt suit everyone. although its only 600, that 6 could go towards a different one though.

                        Did he refund your money?

                          I appreciate reading good and negative reports from vendors.

                          After all "That is how we all learn" from others experiences.

                          OTOH. There isn't a aftermarket seat out there for "Everyone"

                          Been working on bikes now for 20 plus years, and I have had seen the Pros & Cons of every seat made out there.

                          To be fair. No one can build a seat for everyone.


                          Try and get Russel day long & Corbin to made repeated adjustments?? (For example)

                          Every company has a set limit, as to how many adjustments are made before you are told.
                          "That is how it is".

                            I understand not wanting to do repeated adjustments but not giving it a second look is not very professional.

                            Seeing I wasn't privy to the actual conversation demeanor?

                            I'd get a refund one way or the other.

                          No, didn't offer a refund or to take another try at the seat.

                            Wingsoft should be shamed right out of business!

                              why? #1 we dont know the other side of the conversation, and #2 he has pleased a lot of people with his modifications. hes obviously providing a service people need and like. if what he said is true, the market will correct it
