Your seats are as important to your safety as helmets and restraints, and the end of the desert and short course racing season is the perfect time to have your suspension seats tuned up. While the end of the season is the perfect time for a seat tune-up, MasterCraft Safety strongly recommends sending your seats in for inspection following any “event” or collision as well. MasterCraft Safety seat owners will also be notified if their seat frames are damaged. Seat frames are never repaired, but they can be replaced for a fraction of the cost of a new suspension seat.
What exactly does a “tune-up” entail? MasterCraft Safety will replace the Pirelli straps and cord that are the foundation of your suspension as part of their basic tune-up. At the same time, the skilled craftsman at MasterCraft Safety also inspect your seat to determine if the foam or liner need to be replaced. Should your seats require more than the basic tune-up, a sales representative will contact you with recommended repairs.
