    If the seat was dished out to put a pocket in it and give some support it would be a lot better.
    Like you guy s have done on some of your other seats.

    Same here. My 2013 wasn't much of a problem, but with the 2016 I'm struggling to get comfortable. I'm not looking for more height, but am curious about the SC seat.

    Question,

    Can the Versys 650 "standard" height seat you guys made for me be turned into a "low" version?

    It's just too dang tall.

    There is several ways to address your seat height and here is 2 of the more common ways. One is to take the seat you have to a local car upholstery shop and they should be able to work with you and shave it down (something you also can do with an angle sander). We do not provide any customizing services as we are very busy and more importantly this is something you should be present for while being modified for your taste. You could also buy our low kit but you will need to find a OEM passenger foam to work as we moved back our standard seating position and this will not work with the low.

    Seat Concepts Touring seat for BMW F800GS is brilliant.

    A quick review of my new Seat Concepts Touring version seat will All Carbon seat cover. My bike is a 2012 BMW F800GS. I also decided to get a new seat pan from Seat Concepts and have them ( Robert and Dave ) install the seat kit.

    When I originally purchased my used 2012 BMW F800GS is fall of 2017, the the stock seat was too tall. I ordered a Seat Concepts LOW seat. After a few months I boosted the seat up with sheepskin cover and foam pad. Worked for first year. I did the foam and seat cover install myself.

    After about year and a half I noticed my BMW stock seat was getting tired from all the staples and reupholstering ( covers ). So, I spoke to Seat Concepts. I explained my setup. Rob was confident a Touring seat would work better for me. Moreover, I wouldn't have to deal with my extra padding setup ( Alaska Sheepskin and foam ).

    Four weeks later, my Seat Concepts seat arrived. Packed with plenty of packing bubble roll. Immediately I noticed a much thicker foam on seat than my current LOW Seat Concepts. Also much flatter and less steep sitting position for rider. Awesome! Workmanship of the complete kit and pan is excellent. The F800GS Seat Concepts seat pan looks identical to my stock one. Even has the same tool holder molding under the seat. Fitment is excellent. The half a dozen or so rubber bumpers under the seat pan look light grey. I put the new Touring seat on my bike. I measured both my LOW and new Seat Concepts Touring seat against a set reference point. I used my foot peg with bike on center stand. The Touring seat is about 1" inch taller ( more foam) than the Low Seat Concept. The most notable difference is the Touring version is about 1/2" wider in rear and much flatter seating position surface. The passenger area is also much plusher ( more foam ) and flatter seating position.

    I road 230 miles on the Touring seat. Comfortable ride the entire day.

    Some side by side comparison of Seat Concepts LOW vs. Touring seat:

    I've been using Seat Concepts now for 2-3 years. I have one on my Yamaha WR250R and now on my F800GS. Very happy with comfort, workmanship, and value. I also now they make one heck of a good seat pan.

    Keep up the great work Rob and Dave. Thanks for putting another smile on happy ADV inmate. No more pain on those long rides.

    We are happy to introduce the first of our XL line of seats. It is for the KLR in the stock height. It features a wider profile than our standard comfort seat klr650-xl.jpg with a dished center.

    We do have one we started on but stopped. What changes were you looking for? The first thing we noticed was the normal forward slope.

    Forward slope is one issue with the seat for sure. At this point I sort of butchered my foam while "testing" some homebrew mods in attempt to make it more comfortable. Was hoping you had one in progress that I could purchase to replace mine.

    I rode up to Idaho to have Seat Concepts install their tall seat kit on my BMW G310GS a couple of days ago. They got me in and out in less than an hour, and I could not be more pleased with the quality, looks, and the service I got from them. And after more than 1000 miles on it, including a ride over the Lolo Motorway, my butt is blissed out. Best seat ever!

    How about a comfort deluxe line of heated seats? Would love to have one on my Super Tenere.

    We've done some experimentation with them in the past but have yet to perfect the combination with a comfort seat in conjunction with a heating element. There has also been little demand at this time for that luxury to justify the additional R&D time.
