I think that's for the lawyers benefit.

I use them on my drz400 and dr650. I love it. More comfortable than the Corbin seat I had on my Dr650 plus I have emergency water. You have to be creative on fastening it to the bike though.

Had one on my DRZ, which has the most cruel/painful ass-punisher ever put on a dual sport. It transformed the bike into an all-day comfort bike. Seriously, I'm not given to hyperbole it make it like sitting on a nice office chair and I could stay in the saddle for a long time.

Downside? It's awkward if you hit the trails with one on, and it decreases your leg-to-ground clearance...I had to scoot forward off of it at stops, but for the price and the comfort, it's worth it big time.

I put foam around two MSR bottles on either side, and could carry extra fuel which was nice too.

I seem to recall somebody racking up big miles on a DRZ using that. Maybe it was Dr. Rock on his Mobius trip. If something can make a DRZ seat bearable, it must be magic, because that seat must be one of the all time worst motorcycle seats.

DRZ400 with Seat Specialties aftermarket seat is too narrow to sit down for long distances.. Without SweetCheeks I would have had to stand up for a lot of the 4,800 miles on the TAT.
