    Well, they are not available in the US, so probably not.
    But if you can put together a 10 order minimum group buy and get a seat to me.......maybe! :D

    Well, the Death Valley test run is over & the seat passed!! Much more comfortable than the other one. Got a couple more mods coming but I think I will ride this bike to Bryce Canyon. That should be a thorough test.

    Bundy,

    What do you think about sealing the cover seams on the underside using a "tent seam sealer" like [​IMG] or similar? Good, bad, unnecessary, other?

    Thanks,

    That should work. Do you have one of our seat kits?
    New seat kits come with a plastic under layment to be applied between the cover and foam, so sealing the seams is not necessary .
    On complete seats we install the sheeting in the build process.

    I'm wanting a tall seat for the terra 650. I'm 260 lbs was wondering about foam density? I didn't see any options on the website.

    Yup, it showed up today. I'll shoot you an email on the underlayment.

    Looks like you have a good thing going here. If you don't mind, any pictures of the tall seat for the F800GS. A regular will do as well.
    Thanks.

    I just installed a seat kit, current KTM model. Came with the "new and improved" logo and everything. The only things in the bag were the foam, cover and instructions. Am I missing something?

    If you didn't get a plastic sheeting than yes you are missing something.
    PM me your name and addy and I will mail you one.

    Well fook! It's already installed and looking mahvelous. I'm sure that if I pull the cover off now off things are going to go bad when I try to reinstall. What's the downside if I don't have the underlay? How come it's not mentioned in your install videos or instructions? I watched that thing so many times I could recite it word for word.

    That's a great idea. I use to love my seat concept seat for my 690, but after the first week not so much.The foam is not dense enough so my arse still hurts.

    I just returned from a 2k trip from SLC to Tombstone and back. I have to report that my seatconcepts seat worked well. I hated the stock seat with a passion with its forward slope to the tank. However, the new seat is much more comfortable and allows me to do 300+ mile days without to many problems. Thanks.

    Well its a recent development. We were raked over the coals in the CRF250L thread forum on thumper talk because of the seams weeping. This is a problem with all sewn seat covers unless you have a uber expensive seam sealing machine. So instead of selling a separate rain cover like some of the competition, we came up with suppling the underlayment.
    I do not have the under layment on any of my personal bikes, but I do not ride in any down pours either.
    Under normal use you should not have any concerns.

    Thanks.
    I am considering your seat. I have had three try's of another well known seat maker, but they just dont work for me. And I an an enduro mountain biker, so I don't think my behind is that picky.:D:D
    Would it be possible for you to measure the following on your tall f800GS seat. Measure from center, and aft of the seat, forward. Please measure with @ 14 inches,@ 19 inches, and @ 24 inches. My current seat is 11 wide,9 wide, and 5.5 inches wide, at those stations. Thank you for your help.
