Seat Concepts seat for 990 adv

anyone have any experience with these? They have a good reputation with smaller bikes and the price is attractive over other alternatives

I have had several for different bikes. Top notch. On the 990 I have the 2-up comfort. It is great, especially for the price. Can ride 500 miles a day on it.

I've got one of the do-it-yourself kits for my 990 I haven't put on yet. If you're interested in it I'd work out a deal on it for you.

Thumb two thumbs up

I have the "high" seat, not because I have long legs, but because it is a flat seat like my other dirtbike. My other dirtbike also has a SeatConcepts seat.

I had them install it for me at the Adv rally in Taos. Excellent job! Just as good, perhaps better, than my install on my DRZ.

The KTM Ergo seat gave me blisters on my butt on the trip to Taos. What a POS. The SC seat has been excellent. I got gripper top with fake carbon fiber sides (in the high non-stepped seat as mentioned above).

My longest pavement day on it, so far, is 800 miles. All good. YMMV.

As an addendum to my post above, I have the 2-up comfort tall. A friend has the low but it didn't have enough padding for my likes. The tall is the same height as a stock seat. I'm 5'9" with a 30" inseam and it's fine for me.

I have a flat high seat on my 950. Longest single day was 980 miles.
The seat helped, 300 miles is no problem, but when you cross 600, you find other ways to ride regardless of what seat you have.
