Yamaha Attak Seat Project Has A Final Say

You might remember some time ago we did a little makeover on our Yamaha Attak. One of the areas that we addressed was the seating position that in our eyes has you sitting too low.  With the  help from our good friend Kent Teslow from A-Plus Upholstery,  we came up with a fantastic upgrade for our Attak.

Now it took some time and a few different versions but with much patience on Kent’s part, the seat was done. It looked amazing and worked great. At that point we thought the final chapter was written with the version we had. Now a little time passes and then something happened; I found myself riding the new Polaris snowmobiles and a light went off in my head.

The flatter and wider seat was just way too comfortable and I wondered ‘could this work on our Attak?’ So a phone call was placed to A-Plus Upholstery and after Kent  listen to my idea, he was more than happy to put together the final version of our project.

With this new design, we are still getting about 4-inches in height over the stock seat but this one is built flatter and wider. This makes it even more comfortable on longer rides. If I feel like wicking it up, I can still get up on the tank and let it all hang out or I can just sit back and cruise all day in comfort.

At the end of the day I’m sitting in a much better position and my legs and back are the better for it. Keep in mind that we have the Apex mountain riser block in the handle bars which bring our arms up, and this makes it a winning combination.

With  snowmobiles getting more expensive each year, this might just be a perfect way for you to update your older sled at an affordable price. The quality of the material and the workmanship is top-notch.

I like the way Kent can keep it looking like it came from the factory this way. He has many great ideas to help you get the seat that will work best for you and match your sled. A-Plus Upholstery has been great to work with on this project. If you would like ot upgrade your seat at an affordable price, contact them to see what they can do for you. They make custom seats for Yamaha, Polaris, Arctic Cat, and Ski- Doo snowmobile.  www.aplusupholstery.com. Tell them Randy from MaxSled.com sent you.

    Thanks for looking into this for me. Its December 8th and no word. After I get some resolution to this I am planning on purchasing a seat kit from WRP, (and a new seat of course). Maybe you could look into this new product and use that in your article. Looks to be a great alternative.

    Great article, I sent my seat to Kent at A plus upholstery in September with a 250$ deposit to reupholster my Attak seat and guess what? Haven’t heard from in over a month. Its now December 4 and he is not returning my calls. Cashed my check though back in September. So now I’m out of an entire seat and 250$ plus 90$ to ship it to him. If I don’t hear from him ASAP I’ll be contacting the local authorities and the BBB. Once again thanks for referring this guy to all your readers.

      Brian, Sorry you are having issues with this vendor. Not that we can do much about it, but I can get Randy to try to call him on your behalf and at least try to remedy your situation. If we don’t get an answer we may pull this article. Hopefully we won’t have to.
