If it's a multi-brand group buy, I'd be in for an F800GS...

How about the thickness where you sit? Looks like the 1000 may be a little thicker?

On the KLR seat its 20 bucks to install, so it would be 159.95 plus 20.00 and email first and let me know you are an ADV guy and I'll give you free shipping on my end!

I think on the whole the OEM seat did a pretty good job shaving the seat at the front-end to allow the rider to touch the ground without having the edges of the seat poking the inner thigh. Similarly I have never found the stock width to be a problem and I am about 215 with a desk-job posterior.

Aside from the fact that the foam is too mushy, the biggest thing for me would be to push back the ridge where the seat transitions up for the pillion as far as possible to increase the amount of room I have to adjust my seating position during long rides. A seat that is a little taller than stock would be nice as well. The bike is tall, but the distance from the seat to the pegs is too close, and my legs are only about 33." I doubt it is posible, but figuring a way too allow a little more distance from the pegs to the seat without compromising the riders ability to touch the ground would be awesome. I never ride the bike two-up so honestly I do not care about the pillion area. A flat seat would work for me. A smidge taller would be a plus but not a necessity. The OEM shape is not horrible, the foam is.

Suzuki makes like 4-5 models of the seat. The DL650 and DL1000 seats are the same except or height. If you build a recover option it will be available to all of us. By far the Wee is the bigger part of the market, but there are a few of use with the big bike as well. The seats are interchangeable. The Wee seat is a little less than half-an-inch shorter. In addition Suzuki makes a gel seat, as well as high and low version of the stock seat. I think the low-seat is simply the Wee seat, but the high seat is a bit taller than the Vee seat. All of the seats are the same
shape.

If you have other questions let me know. The Vee is my car I can take any measurement you need or answer questions to move things forward.
hey Bundy, me again. i am local to you and have both the 650 and 1000 seats. i can bring them by so you can compare and plan. i too would like the "hump" removed if that's something you want to offer. nobody else does. maybe you can get a corner on this market.

Of course, for us short people the "hump" isn't an issue. But the long distance riding season approacheth (if too slowly...) and my butt would sure like a more comfortable seat!

If by any chance there's a multi-brand group buy, I'm in for a DR 650 seat.

Wow, go away for the weekend and look at what happens.
I don't know exactly how this works, can I start a group buy thread, or does an inmate have to do it. Don't want to be spamming the site.
Looks like by popular demand I'll need 2, one for the WR450 seats and one for a general buy.
