Seat Concepts?

[QUOTE=mikesova;19616530]


I noticed you've installed a Seat Concepts on your 250S. How do you like it? Thx in advance for your reply.

Dude, Gotta comment on the paint-job you're rocking on your floor jack. Very Sweet.

Lowered seat for KLX250?

Hey guys,
Wondering if you guys know of anyone (other than Corbin) that is making a lowered seat for the KLX?
The folks at Seat Concepts only make a wider seat for the bike.

Guess I could use links to bring the bike down a bit?

FWIW, I'm a stocky, 5'9" old fart.

Thanks...

Nate

I have a Sargant on mine. Wider than stock and an inch lower. Pretty hard but I like it that way.

It's 100% better for longer riding sessions. I rode 4 hours yesterday, no discomfort whatsoever.

Talk to Seat Concepts they might be able to make a taller foam/cover.

Nate,

Seat Concepts can and have made lowered seats for the KLX250S. I know because I have one. Go to the vendors section and look at the Seat Concepts thread. They can do just about anything you want. I really like mine. I'm 5'5" and it made a huge difference. I don't need the lowering links for now.

New seat with old foam comparison photos. The new seat is also wider in the rear and narrow in the front for standing clearance.
