    There’s a Waffle House next to Divers Supply’s Marietta, GA location, too. Coincidence ... or is the prospect of breakfast while waiting for a fill part of a clever business model. :wink:

    Edge doesn't sell the service kits to the public, dealers do that. As far as individual LP seats those are also available but what makes you sure that you only need those and not the full kit?
    You should also be able to get them from your HOG service course instructor if they are still current.
    I usually have half a dozen or so seats on hand but they may not be the same as what are in the current kits. Edge/HOG has used several soft seats over the years. They came in black, red, orange, and the current ones are now light blue. There are some small differences in the composition of the seat and the new blue ones are a tad softer than the red ones.
    I have also seen regs come in for service that supposedly were done with actual kits but had seats that HOG never used.
    Maybe that's why they sent them to me instead of the place that did them the last time?
    I've got dozen or so kits in stock now and have red (10), orange (12), and light blue (2) soft seats.
    How many do you need?

    Hi Jim,

    I've disassembled both of my 2nd stages due to minor free flows and have seen the soft seats are quite badly grooved - I understand this is usually caused by adjusting the 2nd stage without holding the purge button. Thanks for the info on the different seats used, mine are the red version. After inspecting the internals I am pretty confident it's just the soft seat that needs replacing but I would be happy to purchase the full kits as it wouldn't hurt to do a full service. I will PM you for details.

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply.

    All the best.
