Seat concepts #1
New XT250. So far I love it. The 50 mile seat not so much, ordered a Seat Concepts cover and foam, only way it comes. Took a month to get it, shipping was only 3 days, woo hoo. Installation wasn’t too bad. If you get one make sure you have a pneumatic stapler. I tried two hand staplers, an electric one and finally broke down and bought an air powered stapler and all was well with the world.
Took it for a quick ride but will have to wait for the fires to clear for a full analysis. Here are some picks.

I'm curious how you end up liking it, I tried a low one on a Suzuki DR350 and wasn't blown away with it, perhaps just because on that bike a low seat is super square, yours is a lot more tapered toward the front.

Okay, going stir crazy. Skies looked kinda, almost a little clear so neighbor and I went for a ride. About 80 miles of backroads and dirt roads. Smoke got worse so we gave up and went home. The seat is an improvement. It’s wider where it counts, foam is about the same as stock but butt bones are riding on seat instead of on the edge. In all fairness my tush is a little sensitive, I have a gel pad in my duramax. I was hoping for 100 miles without pain. It’s okay. I may try a gel pad now that I have the extra width to support it. Hope that helps. Mike
