    Installed the seat foam and cover today:

    Heating the cover to make it pliable in my 40° garage.

    Installed and stapled the foam, in front staples.

    Used a bit of glue in the dished part of the seat to hold it down.

    Great fit! Looks good.

    The seat is definitely taller than stock, but it feels like it will be more comfortable. I can still get my toes down! :lol3

    What is the seat height for the BMW F800GS with this seat? Is there a low seat option?

    I got a Seat Concepts seat for my 09 Husaberg this past summer and I am very pleased with it. It's now time to get one for my 03 BMW Dakar. How much extra will it cost to do a suede top with carbon fiber sides? Anybody got a picture of this type of seat on a BMW Dakar?

    Jim? I thought you had abandoned us GS'ers to ride a Bonniville or some such nonsense!

    Never! I just like a little strange now and then!:evil

    By the way, 100 miles on the seat Sunday, and am pretty impressed. It is high in front, but like a stock or Sargent seat set in the high position, as many of us do anyhow.:deal

    Installed my KLR tall seat this afternoon. Went OK, lots easier with a helper to shoot staples while I held the cover in place. A little wrinkles at the rear corners, couldn't figure out how to staple it down without wrinkling. But that area is pretty hidden. Looks good and very comfy, although a ride test will wait until outside temp is above freezing and roads are clean (-25 in town today).

    I wear 34" length for pants. I can just flatfoot with the tall seat, which is what I was expecting when I ordered it. Certainly any less than 34" inseam you should probably order the regular seat.

    Sorry for the bad photos, very cramped in the garage in winter time.

    No problem, MacNoob...they are not at all bad - in fact - they are not at all visible (at least not from where I am sitting)...LOL

    I have a SC seat on mine and I can ride the thing now for 3 hrs none stop. I am 5'9 and just touch the ground. SC seat is a 100% improvement over the stock seat.

    These guys are great. My much-loved DR-Z400S was limited to about a 70 mile radius before my butt could take no more. Now with the higher density, stock-height, gripper top model SC seat, it's an all-day, everyday rider. I could take it from NH to AK if I wanted to. It would be OK.

    I spent $5,000 on the new bike, another $1200 on parts for it and I still could only go 70 miles at the most. Just $150 more for the Seat Concepts seat, and now every dime I'd already spent on the bike became instantly worthwhile. Thanks guys!

    I've tried www.seatconcepts.com and I get one of those aggregator sites that tries to spoof me.

    Did they go out of business suddenly? Is there server done for the weekend?
    Inquiring minds need to know....:D
