Glad I ride a 01 panther. my seat is really soft. The only time I mind the ride is when riding 3 to 4 ft moguols for 17 miles. just makes my butt feel bad but no chaffing. it is odd that a group of 6 would all have the same effect. if it was only your group maybe every one used the same type of soap who knows see if anyone else has that problem??
LadyK, If you can get Avon products, take a warm bath in "Skin-so-Soft". You will love it. I am not going to tell you that I do this because I would catch so much grief it wouldn't be worth it, but I "think" it will help you a lot. WWW.AVON.COM. By the way, ballsout1 , I am laughing so hard my ribs are sore, and from what you told me yours are too.
I am not sure what happened, but if your seat is too sticky and is causing chaffing, try Armor All Vinyl Protectant on the seat. I did that to my ZRT to preserve it after cleaning and the seat is always super-slippery for the next hundred miles or so.
I was using the dry seat at first.Stopped using it and chaffing has decreased, butt it is still chaffing. Just did 250 kliks and were all chaffed. A wet bottom seems to have something to do with it. As for the soaps we own a bath product company that specializes in natural bath products ,(ie, goats milk/ hemp oil) so it cant be the soap, it is the seat!!! Never happened on my other sleds, atv's or dirtbikes. Just the 02's.
In all seriousness I think I know what yer talking about. My seat is very slippery, which I really like. When I sat on the new MXZ's it felt like I was taped on with the seat and handlebars. I would just try to find some slippery bibs to wear so you don't get the "irritation".
