Well, I joined the Lizrdbrth seat club--in a round about way though. The oem seat caused great pains, and was the limiting factor in riding--forget about the tank size. I odered the Seat concepts kit with a mini-perf top. The seat foam and cover are 1st class. The foam is more dense, but also more resilient, and wider at the rear. Great feel. Extended my ride time greatly. I should have went with the gripper cover, but went with the mim-perf--way too slick. Add to that the natural slope of the TW seat and I was constantly sliding forward and the arm pump was bad. I stopped riding it for a while. Was going to get a gripper cover to remedy, but then finally found a local shop that would modify the foam at my direrction and pattern a gripper cover. I liked the ergos of the seat concepts so I decided on the follwing: 1. Fill the area nearest the tank. 2. level the slope. 3. add some extra height overall for seat/peg/ground comfort. 4. Maintain the width of the seat concepts seat from front to back. 5. Add changes to the seat concepts foam. Here are the results- and liking it very much. The added foam really helps to reduce the felt impact of the bumps in the road. I use to brace for impact on some of the larger bumps, but not anymore. The remaining forward slope of the seat levels out when I sit on the bike.

That looks great!
Do the Seat Concepts kits come with enough excess material for that, or did the local guy have to redo the cover?
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.
Seat looks good, how difficult was the install (prior to the modifications)?
I have the Walmart ATV Pad with 2 inches of stiff foam unser it.... ugly but kinda works
Lets here of the comfort of the seat concepts PLEASE
I really like the Seat Concepts kit. I can ride twice as long as I could with the OEM seat and the grippy cover makes off road obstacles much easier to negotiate.
Anyone else up for a SS1000/BB1500 TW rally?
