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.
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!
If part of your issue is overheating in the crotch, go the cheap route first and order a Sit & Fly off eBay. I finally got out on my DL1K yesterday with the Sit&Fly installed. It does allow air flow under your butt.
For rides of over 100 kilometers, I strap a cheap foam cushion about two inches thick onto the seat. It is nothing special, but it makes the difference between substantial discomfort that lasts a while, and mild discomfort that disappears a few minutes (and a few ounces) after I stop for the day.
Why not a permanent solution? I have more than one bike.
Many here have the same problem with the oem seat..
Bought my vee about a year and a half back and YES, two hours+ and the numb butt starts to kick in pretty seriously.
Temporarily, I bought an AirHawk seat cushion, got it off the local Craigslist for half price and it does a great job. I ve forgotten about getting some kind of "new" seat, the AirHawk is good.
Since the Vstrom is set up so good for it ,do what I all ways do.Stand awhile.Stock seat on my 011 and put over 59,000 on it.One 10,300 trip and one over 900 mile day back from Colorado trip and at 71 can still ride all day just need to move and stand a lot. Throttle lock,stand often,and move,move, move,and all day easy.

I'm new to this site and V-Stroms. I bought a 2006 1000 in October. It had apparently gone into a ditch...
Mechanically it's sound but one side and the nose fairing had damage. Also a small dent in the tank. It's all cosmetic and I'm pretty impressed with the abs repairs I've done.
