    Gents, anybody running a Seat Concepts cover and foam on your 950 / 990?

    Interested in comments / reviews regarding standing riding position... I've a Renazco, no idea what model / build, bought of an inmate a while back, whilst bum comfortable it's too wide between the knees when standing...
    Wondering if the SC seat is narrower (feeling) between the knees?
    Thanks!

    Hey @braaap! - have you had a look at these guys at all?

    https://www.acmseats.com.au

    They did the seat on my Super Enduro and was very happy with the quality of work and shape they came up with.

    Wont cost you anything to have a chat and see what they can offer. :-)

    1cb, can you use the back of your seat? The touratech is nice and flat, rather firm and has a differing profile front to rear. As you move fore and aft it changes the pressure points.

    If dd can ride a 950 whatcha bitchin about :wink:

    I can sit on my swag strapped on my rear rack btw, hate single position seats for any use but so used to planks and moving to suit. And pillions go in front of me...

    Not really, normally use a small duffle on the pillion end.
    I like to travel light if I can.

    I meant can you sit on it while riding...? Use the full length of the seat?

    Nice setup Rossguzzi. What sort of lightbar is it? Hows it wired up?

    I used a 6' N-Tech Light bar, 45 watt driving beam.
    Very happy with it in combo with the lights converted to quality HID.
    Switched with a relay using high beam positive for the sense wire.
    Awesome lighting, was very happy with it.
    If I was going to do it again, Id do the same but use quality LED conversion instead of HID for the lights as well.

    The one above in Rossguzzi's link looks identical to the one I used.

    Anyone got a link to a walkthrough for replacing the clutch plates/springs on a 990 ?

    BTW - how many kays are you guys getting out of your clutch plates before replacement ? Ive got 60k on mine.

    Cheers
