The stock 2012-2016 650 seats are painful/numbing for many. What year is it? I bought a custom Terry Adcox seat made in the US but there are many replacement seats. Look in the section of the 650s and you will find threads on the seats. Common problem.

Seat concepts make replacement foam and covers. Quite good, mine lasted around 80,000k's before it started to get a bit soft.

Another very inexpensive option - Ebay and search for "Sit&Fly"

The Seat Concepts replacement foam/cover are easy to install and roughly half the cost of an Adcox seat. It is fine for me, but my wife is still not comfy on the back with the new foam/cover. If I had it to do all over again, I'd go directly to Adcox.

After retiring from 50+ years of doing custom seats I now refer all my old customers to Terry. (I was dirt road seats) Check all the prices and you'll find that Terry is very reasonable , and everyone loves his work and customer service. Just a look at the above pic of SECoda's seat should be enough .

I developed a serious problem due to the fact that the stock seat cut off blood flow to my feet. My Adcox seat comes in Saturday. Full report to follow. The seat problems can be more than a lack of comfort!
