    Interesting. I've been using the Triumph factory gel seats on my Tiger and really like them. I would interested in seeing these when their done. If they are as comfy as the dirt bike seats, I may have to make a change.

    Tried a suede cover on my Husaberg FE570 seat this time and wish I had tried suede before now. Very nice and even easier to install than the vinyl (at least for me). I had requested that the expensive suede cover not come with the big blue nipple of a logo on it, but that request was ignored and I got it anyway. I could've removed it, but then I would have had holes in my new suede cover from the stitching. The small tags on the side would have been preferred and would've been classier. Just a heads up that you apparently don't get a choice when it comes to the new logo on your seat cover.

    I have the stock seat on my '02. I can't imagine my trip to Alaska this summer on that thing. I did a 3000 mile loop to the Olympic Peninsula last year, and my ass was done.

    I know what you mean. I spoke to them regarding a seat for my SE. Pleading for delivery the day before! lol.

    24hrs later I see the shipping notice! Really nice folk to deal with, and if the seat is anythink like the one on my WR250R I'll be very pleased.

    Update: Bundy got back in touch with me and the inclusion of the large logo on my suede cover was added in error and he offered to make it right. We worked out a compromise and all are happy. Great follow up after the sale. :freaky

    As feedback from my 690 tall seat- had to be tall as I wanted the tailbone channel foam. THE SEAT IS FANTASTIC several hours riding and no burning or numbness. I like the wider rear section also, so comfortable.

    Nice one rob!

    Is this an appropriate place for write-up/review (good or bad, won't know until I ride it), or no?

    Seat Concepts for life!
    Seriously. I am never going to run another saddle as long as SC is in business! I bought a DR 650 a few years ago on which the p.o. had installed the Seat Concepts diy foam kit with the stock cover. It's a great seat. I've put about 22,000 miles on it, with several 700+ mile days where I fuel on the bike, and don't stop to rest for several tanks (5.3 gallon tanks!) Never really knew what to compare it to until I got on a buddy's stocker. Holy crap. A thousand times better.
    My DR with Seat Concepts foam on stock pan and stock cover:
    [​IMG]
    So, I saw this thread, saw all the effusive, over the top praise for the quality, low price (relative to what you're getting!), and fast turn around times. Had to pull the trigger on a low seat for my buddy bike, a klx (drz) 400, so the ladies can get their feet on the ground. And a seat for my KTM 950 sm.
    I ordered completes, so I can return to stock if I sell the bikes and recoup some $ selling the seats in the flea market. They came with lightning speed, packed in a box in such a way as to allow no movement or abrasion to the two seats in one box.
    I'm 5'11 with a 32 inch inseam. The klx has never felt too tall for me. However, the low seat, at an inch and an eighth lower than stock, but with a slightly narrower and more domey profile right on the tank for technical sections, and a slightly wider, flat section further back with amazingly comfortable foam, is WORLDS better. It's an amazing seat. No faults whatsoever can be found here. Aesthetically perfect stitching, high quality, burly looking materials (gripper) for the cover, and amazing comfort...what more could you ask for?
    I don't have a photo on my phone or I'd put it up. Later I'll revisit this post and get one on here.

    And then there's the beast. I've done several 700 mile days on the 950sm with the stock seat. It's a hundred mile seat. Liveable, but pretty bad. A Seat Concepts complete in "embossed" vinyl with orange contrast stitching was a no-brainer. And holy jeez, am I glad that I did! All of the lines are more graceful and beautiful than the stock seat and add to the appearance of the bike. And it has turned this bike into a road warrior! Total transformation. Fuelling on the bike, all day riding, no discomfort AT ALL. It's a work of functional art. The best kind of art.

    Here's the ugly, bland, narrow, roundy stock seat. Mmmm, sit-bone pressure and junk-numbness...

    Here's the Seat Concepts....what a beauty.

    Anyone who will listen, is going to get a recommendation of Seat Concepts from me. I am sold. Especially after having been on the good Sergeant and Corbins. You owe it to yourself to try SC.

    Ordered one in suede ( a +$90 option) for my Super Tenere two days ago. Can't wait to get it. I'm hoping the wife and I like it and it was a wise investment.

    Just ordered mine in a full seat configuration. I was going to have them install it for a reasonable $20 but decided that for $75 more I'd get the pan and everything. This way I can recoup some of the cost if I sell my bike down the road. Can't wait to get it on the bike and get some good miles in.

    I want to order the foam and cover for my 690 enduro. I have the old version seat concepts but its too wide.

    I would like carbon sides with gripper top, but dont want the big blue logo. Can I get it without it? It would be a deal breaker. :ear

    Sorry, but the gripper cover only comes with the logo.
    We are getting some samples of the logo in black where it is now blue, will see what that looks like.

    I was supposed to report back to SC on my Tenere seat. I think I got the first passenger seat they did and my wife is very happy with it. Did a 10 day bike trip on it last fall and she didn't want to kill me at the end of it so I call it a success. I am more than pleased with the front seat for myself.

    I was just thinking I may order one for my DR350 soon

    Any word on seats for the KTM 1190 Adventure? I know you said you were waiting on your bike -- did you get it yet? :ear

    Just wanted to say thanks to the guys at Seat Concepts, had me in and out super quick this morning. Didn't want to put one more mile on the stock seat.

    Btw, everybody complaining about the new logo, it really is not nearly as bad as you are making it out to be...

    I have to agree. After having the new logo on my seat for a few weeks now, I've grown quite used to it and don't even notice it....much. No different than having any other logo on an aftermarket part. Although, I would prefer not to have it on a suede cover, it wouldn't bother me on a gripper cover.

    In fact, I'm groovin' on the suede. I have been playing with the idea of replacing my other SC seat covers with their suede versions. :evil

    Makes me wonder if some of these guys cut the stars off their Alpinestar's, the swoosh off their Nike's etc :huh

    I think if it didn't look so much like an afterthought people wouldn't object to it as much. Also, I think people wouldn't mind something on the side of the seat (like how a swoosh is on the side) as much as they mind a big blue circle on the top.

    It's not nearly as big or gaudy as it looks in some of these pictures. Don't have it in front of me right now, but I'd say its under 2" across
