Hey guys, absolute newbie here so I apologize if this has been posted before.

I'm looking for a scrambler/brat seat for the CX400 Custom but obviously it's quite a rare bike. I've already contacted the people from Texavina and they're saying it's a completely different frame and unfortunately they don't have any seat models to fit even with modifications.

Any help or advice is appreciated.

Universal seat and some minor mods a possibility?
the other option is to take the original seat pan to a motorcycle seat refurbishet to have it made to your specs.

The asian market bikes can be a little weird in that their designations can be misleading. Could you post a photo of your bike?

I've seen 400Cs as standard, 500C and 650C based bikes.

Is the plan just to have a flatter seat or are you planning other mods?

At the moment I'm just cleaning it up a little, just got a pair of Murray's Carbs, might screw around with the exhaust layout a bit but the one thing I'm certain about is the seat needs to be changed out, i personally dislike the stock seat shape

You have one of the CX orphans . Aftermarket seats dont exist - your best bet is to butcher your existing seat pan and reupholster it .
