This is the GEL insert for the motorcycle RIDER (operator) only. See related products for passenger kits. This Gel is intended to be ADDED to fit under a Luimoto seat cover.
Luimoto Gold Gel is the new standard in motorcycling comfort. Gold Gel is a premium gel insert pad that has a sturdy, yet comfortable feel, but will not bottom out, and will absorb shock on those bumpier roads. Whether you ride a sportbike, touring bike, cruiser, or off road, Luimoto Gold Gel will install perfectly into your seat and will retain the original shape so your ride height and position is not affected. Best of all, Luimoto seat covers will fit since the shape of the seat is unaltered. Get the comfortable ride you have been looking for!
GG1 Gel pad sheet comes as a 9 x 9.25" GEL PAD
Note: Gold Gel thickness is 1cm, so always ensure you have enough foam to install the insert.
*TIP - Use a sewing needle and permanent marker. Mark a dot on the metal stem of the needle, 1cm away from the tip. Poke each section of the seat foam, especially where you believe it is thin. The mark should be able to touch the foam before hitting the plastic pan underneath. If the mark does not reach the foam and you hit the plastic pan first, Gold gel is not recommended to be installed in that area.
* Not all seats can accommodate Gold Gel. Before purchasing, please CLICK HERE to view the official Luimoto chart, to find out which bikes are not able to use gel inserts.
Does your product come with the whole seat?
We do not sell the entire seat unit with foam. We design and manufacture a sewn seat cover fabric which is to be installed over your OEM seat using a staple gun. Below is an example of our actual product and packaging.
How long do I have to wait before my order is shipped?
Luimoto produces many styles in hundreds of different color combinations for most late model motorcycles. However, it is extremely illogical to stock everything. We know, no one likes to wait, neither do we, but the good news is that since everything is made in-house, we are able to produce the seat covers quickly and efficiently. Please allow approximately 2 weeks for manufacturing.
What is the difference between the CF and SP vinyl?
CF vinyl is a marine grade vinyl that has a carbon weave texture embossed onto the vinyl. It reflects in the light just like real carbon fiber. SP vinyl has a leather-like texture, look and feel; for those who want an enhanced OEM look.
How are Luimoto seat covers installed?
Installing the Luimoto seat cover is simple; however, it will require some patience. You will need a staple gun (an electric or pneumatic staple is preferred). Installation will involve some stretching and pulling. All orders come with detailed instructions.
How do I maintain my Luimoto seat cover?
Luimoto Marine-Grade Vinyl:
Wash with mild soap and water and rinse. Wipe off any remaining excess water with a clean chamois.
For stubborn stains, take a nylon bristled toothbrush and use mild soap and water and work the area in a circular motion. Repeat until stain has been removed.
Do not use any kind of store bought vinyl cleaners as the seat cover could become slippery making it unsafe to operate a motorcycle.
Use a clean soft nylon bristled brush to quickly remove dust off suede
Wash your bike like you usually would with mild soap and water and rinse
Soak up excess water with chamois or sponge and allow 15 minutes of air drying under the sun
Do not allow the suede to stay wet and dry out on its own
Do not allow suede to sit under the sun all year round uncovered
Following these steps should ensure long life of your Luimoto suede seat cover
