Pre-Filter

Can someone provide the page to the pre-filter, I know it's in here somewhere but I can't locate it. Also, if someone has the part number and more information on it, that would be great. Thanks,

Got my new Saddlemen Adventure seat this week. Not bad so far. It is flatter, a little wider and very firm. It is a bit strange with the "suede" rider perch and family jewel protection channel. Passenger seat is better, more padding basically. Passenger seat has metal rings ( two on each side) for bungees. Saddlemen rep told me they are working on soft luggage to attach to these points. 200 miles so far. Sorry for no pics.

I wouldn't recommend it. I just got the ortlieb moto saddlebags and there is no way to stay off the exhaust without some kind of rack. The racks doesn't have to be anything special. I plan to make a small hoop on both sides using the stock case mounting locations.

How would you compare the seat height to the stock seat. High or low position?

That is a very interesting seat. Not sure I've seen one like that (well on this kind of bike at least) before...

I've got a set of Ortliebs, but am planning on replacing them with one of the loop bags - need more storage. I can snap up some pics in the next couple of days.

With the stock exhaust...you would likely need to fab something up, as the existing exhaust shield isn't big enough to provide complete protection for the Ortliebs. Or, you could use this as an opportunity to pick up CF slip on - I've got the Leo Vince. In my limited testing, it doesn't get anywhere near hot enough to melt the bags. I went out for some very spirited riding last weekend, and took the IR thermometer with me. I never got a reading higher than mid-130's anywhere on the CF portion of the slip on.

I decided to get a Leo Vince carbon exhaust which is cool enough that I can set ortlieb bags on it with no trouble so far.

This keeps the rear profile nice and narrow and was cheaper than buying racks and bags. Can also add a small amount of punch to the ride.

Highly recommend the Giant Loop bags. I use a Giant Loop "coyote" bag (located in the pillion seat area) and medium size Ortlieb dry bag on the rear rack/hand grab area. Fits great, compact, bombproof off-road, and stores everything you need for a month long trip. If you have to carry more gear.....go with the Giant Loop "Great Basin". NO RACK REQUIRED and waterproof.

I can't speak for the Great Basin, but the heat shield on the stock exhaust provides adequate protection for the Coyote.

This setup saves you 30lbs of aluminum boxes and a rack! A huge weight savings!! In my opinion, it is much safer when riding off-road. The downside, is that you can't "lock/secure" the Giant Loop bags and contents on the bike. Therefore, I bring the bag in the hotel at night..... While it's not that big of a deal, it's certainly would be nicer to simply lock the aluminum panniers and carry just the Ortlieb dry bag in for the evening (I keep all my day to day clothes, etc. in the Ortlieb and tools, spares, first aid, rain gear, etc. in the Coyote). Obviously, this isn't an issue if you're camping.

I would say the Saddlemen seat is closer to the low position. It does not appear to be adjustable. I have a 34in inseam and it works so far. Thank you for posting the pic.
