Several people have shown interest in replacing their Burgman 650 OEM seat with a Russell Day-Long saddle. I recently took this step and wanted to share the price for those who might be interested.
I ordered an all vinyl Russell solo saddle with built–in backrest without pocket. With a solo saddle, Russell totally rebuilds the driver’s seat, while leaving the passenger seat cushioning intact. The entire seat is then recovered with the desired material, in my case vinyl.
$ 525.00 Solo Day-Long Saddle covered in vinyl
$ 45.00 Driver’s seat heavy duty suspension
$ 250.00 Driver’s seat built-in backrest without pocket
$ 75.00 Addition fee charged for XL scooter seats (Applicable to Bergman scooters)
$ 100.00 Cost to ship & insure my OEM seat via UPS to Russell
$ 60.50 Return Shipping & Insurance
$ 1,055.00 Final Cost
I contacted Russell during August and was told that I could ship my seat at any time. It took a week to ship it to them, and another full week to get the rebuilt seat back. It took Russell two weeks to complete the work. Because I wanted to ride my scooter during this time, I bought a second OEM seat on eBay. The cost of the spare seat (with shipping) was an additional $249.37. My intention is to put this seat on my Bergman when I sell it.
