No matter how I changed my position ,my arms always became tired when driving for say 60 minutes or more. The solution -have the seat modified . Now I can stretch

There's a lot of differences between the quality and thickness of Vinyl used to re-cover a motorcycle/scooter seat, the ideal thickness for covering a motorcycle seat is 1.2mm, but thicker and thinner are used by Thai seat reconditioning shops. Some even use fake PU leather or other pleather (plastic leather) which is often not really up to the task of being used for a motorcycle seat.

In the past I did a few motorcycle seat re-coverings myself, you can read about it here Re-Cover your Motorcycle Seat

And one thing I can say is that the quality of the materials used for rebuilding the seat is very important, and the quality of the materials used for SutusB25's seat we cannot see from the picture. So if SutusB25's seat turn soft and ugly in one or two months we can say that he paid to much. If his seat looks still good after a year or two he surely didn't pay to much....

The price is almost irrelevant.Remember its 1200 Baht for comfortable driving- good value from my position.
