    I knew the TW seat sucked

    I knew the TW seat sucked but after riding a Honda Rancher and even a 2002 Yamaha Blaster I would now say it's the worst motorcycle seat I have ever been on. The small Blaster is inherently rough but I can ride it all day and it has 6 ply china tires. I already had the seat cover thing and stuffed a wad of foam under it too. Sore arse swingarm. This means more money, right?

    You haven't ridden on a stock KTM seat, have you? A stock KTM seat will make the TW seat feel like a feather bed. Having said that, the TW stock seat does suck.

    Of course, I didn't know the stock TW seat sucked until I joined the forum X amount of years ago. That's when I found out the TW seat was supposed to suck and I went out and got Colemen seat pad. I then learned the Colemen (Maddog) seat pad sucked and I now have a Seat Concepts seat. I hope I don't learn the Seat Concepts seat sucks too or it will cost me more money again.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    That's what I was thinking. Go sit on just about any dirtbike seat. Or the Harley Softail chopper thing- the fxcw 'Rocker'.

    If you cut a 2x4 piece of Douglas fir and replace the seat it will be nearly identical to the KTM seat.

    Yep, there are certainly worse motorcycle seats out there. But the stock TW seat leaves a lot to be desired…


    The seat concepts seat was a real game changer for me. That, and a pair of hillbilly impact shorts!

    LOL
    The hillbilly shorts look wild but they would probably be great for my old rear. I'll look into the seat concepts. Thanks

    Am I the only guy that thinks the stock seat is fine? The seat on my previous DR650 was awful and the seat on the 300 Versys I want might be even worse than that.

    The Seat concepts cover is the single best mod I did.

    Believe me, the stock KLR650 seat is worse than the stock TW200.

    Two words: SEAT CONCEPTS! You'll never have to talk or post about it again.
