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?

Might be close, but not sure because I just had the local trim it out with some nice gripper cover he had in-house. The Seat concepts cover had quite a bit of excess material originally.

The seat concept seat was really nice compared to the oem. If I had origianlly ordered the gripper cover, I probably would not have made any additional changes. I used the seat cover change as an excuse to change the seat foam--glad I did.

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.

dustyg can you make me a seat like that ? how much ?
Find someone locally to work with you on reworking your seat--that's what I did. There is likely someone who can do it. Its just finding them. Or maybe start with the seat concepts seat with the gripper cover. Big improvement over stock and cost effective.
