    You might want to look back at post#s 4354 and 4364. These were the only posts I know of that mentioned peg relocations. I believe both these bikes have the suspension modified to lower the bikes. If you are scraping with full suspension height, that's pretty impressive and you should post pics. Here's a pic of a pro test rider with stock height suspension and there's room to crank it over further. I wasn't trying to irritate you.

    Thanks Walter. I'll definitely look into those Airhawks.

    philosobrad- I tried a Corbin a while back and it was not a good fit for me. I do get into the dirt a lot and the width was awkward while standing on the pegs. It also felt pitched forward too much when seated. I have a 36" inseam so my long legs probably position me a bit further back than most.

    Ross- I've heard a lot of positive feedback about the Seat Concepts products. The website talks about extra width on the 950 SMR seat. Does the width of your SM seat feel awkward or force a bow legged stance when on the pegs?

    The Airhawk is making sense in that I can remove it if I go off road and need to work the bike while on the pegs. It's weird but I can ride for hours off road or on twisty pavement and never think once about the seat, but after 30 minutes on straight pavement, it begins to be about all I think about.

    Thanks for your replies- much appreciated!

    I went with the Seat Concepts, and that's why the Corbin is available.

    I'm a heavy off roader as well. The SC seat doesn't impede on the dirt enjoyment. It's a revelation on these machines.

    No problem with that at all, but my bike is the SM which has a different seat than the SE and SMR which I believe are the same.

    I really liked my Seat Concepts foam and cover until I picked up a Renzaco. I have a Seat Concepts foam and cover for sale if anyone is interested. I also have a Renzaco tall complete seat for sale.

    I really like the shape, the non-grippy cover and especially the color scheme of the stock SMR seat, which no doubt when combined with the orange frame is the secret to the SMR's superior performance!! Do you folks with the Seat Concepts set ups think there would be a benefit to switching only the foam to Seat Concepts foam trimmed to the stock shape?

    Definitely maybe. But.......the seat concepts cover is, IMO, superior to the stocker in every way.

    Dump the Dirt bike style pegs and go with some of these like i did. I even lowered bike suspension (better valving and stiffer springs - SPS Suspension) and still don't drag these pegs. Before the SPS work and Peg change i was grinding the stocks all the time while getting knee down. (crappy stock suspension) Now i just drag knees - :) and occasionally the skid plate i installed

    My '06 sm with the Seat Concepts complete. Carbon top and sides, contrast stiching. One million times better than stock.
