Attention to detail, expert craftsmanship, top quality ingredients.

They are building a set of seats for my Ninja 300 right now. I've had them on 8 bikes already and they are my top priority mod. When I buy a new bike, I buy a new seat and ship it, sell the stocker when I get my Renazco modded seat back.

Great services and products.

The foam contains novacane and slowly putts your butt out of it's misery....

Custom height,width and firmness based on the riders size and type of riding. They vary quite a bit from seat to seat and I've seen a few odd balls in the flea market get sold multiple times as they must not have fit the new owners very well. The suede cover really makes the seat work, no sliding and very comfortable. I've had mine for a couple of years and it is worth every $$ and then some.

They are craftsmen. It shows in the quality of their product. Doesn't hurt that they also know what customer service means as well

I like the one I have on my 450 but hated the one on my 950. Sold that one and got a Rick Mayer which is plain awesome.

The use of several foams in varying densities, and strategically placed, make for a well made seat. The key is that the guy understands the ass ergonomics and does his job well. You can't just slap a fancy seat cover over any crappy foam. I do bags and such, and one day I may venture into the seat re-upholstering business, but it's a full time job. I have a lot of respect for the people like him.

Simple: During the many months you're waiting for it to arrive, a chemical change occurs in the area of your brain that controls your ass pain receptors. You only think it's more comfortable, though the suede finish sure is nice

Joking aside, I don't think there is a "secret". Better quality foam than stock in multiple densities. I had James build me one for my 950 and I'm happy with it but I don't think they have a monopoly on comfort, there are plenty of aftermarket seats that are perhaps more comfortable for road work. I bought a used Russell Day Long seat for the 950, it was more comfortable than the Renazco (in my opinion) but the winged design while great for pavement, definitely impeded forward/backwards motion when riding off-road.

Mine is too narrow to be awesome for road trips. It's good and the foam is a nice density. But a Russell seat it is not. My Renazco is barely better than the Suzuki gel seat on a V-Strom which is nothing special. The Renazco is good off road because its narrow. But that narrow profile is precisely what limits it as a mile muncher.

I can do 300-500 miles but not in comfort.

I'm sure I'll hear plenty of disagreement.

mine is really worn but it works perfect for my butt . long 300-500 mile days no problem, out of the way while standing for long distances

I think the magic is in the proper width with some indent relief for the butt bones

I dont think Id want the wider style for my 525 dual sport, the Enduro engineering tall soft is just right for that. I have seen some renazcos in that narrower style and don't think they would be as good on the 950
This one came with the bike I got used in '07, I think it was made in '04-05 or so , I have not seen many this wide

I am amazed at how well the stitching is holding up even though the suede is smooth now at about 50,000 miles

Dustodust, is it possible to show a picture of your seat from above?
I am looking to get a Renazco, but as shipping is $$ from here I would hate to get one I did not like.
Cheers.
