Got my Concept Seat kit in this week, thought I'd share some thoughts and pics.
The stock seat is tough after about 1 and 1/2 hours for me, so I started to look around at the options. The Corbin's and Russell's, etc are all kind of pricey, and I'm sure they are good seats. I just didn't want to bring myself to spend that much on one. Most of the comments and feedback about Seat Concepts was good, and the price was right, about $190 shipped.
It all looked good in the box, and I grabbed my seat and removed the stock cover and foam. Big difference between the two. A lot more padding on the SC foam. I almost sent it back because I didn't want to mess it up, and I couldn't find anyone real local on the net. After thinking about it for a day, I said screw it, I'll just try it, what's the worst that can happen ?
I have a nice staple gun I bought to do a dirt bike seat a few years ago ( a much easier seat to do, all straight , no big lips) for about $30, air powered.
I watched the video they recommended in their instructions, and got to work. I took my time, and it paid off. I think it came out great! Sitting on it feels a little higher, but it's hard to tell for sure. It's firmer, and I get more support across my butt, and the nut-buster curve in the front is gone. I've had a real problem in the past with my right hip- most seats tend to pull or separate the hip joints ever so slightly, and it really bothers my right one. This seat looks like it won't do that because of the broad, flat support. Keeping my fingers crossed! Here's some pics- A ride report will follow at some point if I get a chance to get out here in the northeast on the weekend.
