    Seat Concepts - Comparison of the 4 Different Cover Options

    I'm wanting to try a Seat Concepts pad & cover kit but I noticed they offer 4 different types of cover options. I've never seen "carbon" and was wondering what it looks like as well as the "gripper" or "embossed" top. Any pictures / opinions would be welcomed

    I found one pic but not sure what option this is ?

    Cover Options;
    Embossed Top with Vinyl sides
    Gripper top - carbon sides
    All Carbon
    Plain vinyl

    1432379442372.jpgI have the gripper top with carbon sides (love it!). I would say that pic is the embossed top with vinyl sides.

    +1 Definitely go with the gripper top and carbon sides; looks great, feels great. A 500% improvement in comfort!

    thanks for all the info, I'm considering one of these as well, probably not 'til the off season though. Curious how they hold up over time/miles?

    The Seat Concepts is probably one of the best accessoriesI have added to my TW and DR650. The oem seats are torture devices. The dip on the front of the seat is definitely filled in and higher than stock and a great improvement. I found I was constantly sliding up into the tank and both my azz and "nads" were unhappy.
    I have the Carbon/Gripper on the TW and it works fine on the little bike. But like TWilight said it grips really well.
    I have the all Carbon on the DR because I ride it faster and need to move around more plus I need to slide ahead when stopping to get my feet to the ground.
    No matter what cover you go with the seat will be a vast improvement over the stock OEM seat.

    Yeah I got the Mad Dog ATV gel seat cover and it's OK but kind of like throwing a thimble of water on a bonfire really.

    I had to go look at mine. Mine appears to be carbon all over. It looks nice. It grips well and looks awesome.

    Edit: Remembered I took this photo about an hour ago.. it was actually of my cat, but it does the job. You can also see the Bill Mayer seat on my DR650 and the Corbin on my V-Strom. Makes for a nice comparison.

    so...do you have to do the seat repair yourself, or can you send it to the company. and can you get stock configuration?? height/width
