Well....... it fits! There’s a slight gap where this seat has a flatter angle so the plastic tabs hold it up higher in the rear, but it’s not that noticeable. I haven’t got to ride but about 5 minutes on it so I’m not sure about comfort yet but it’s certainly more firm than the stock seat. I like it so far, let me know your all’s thoughts! I’ll post up some pictures after i read the post about adding pictures off a mobile phone. Hopefully this opens up some options for everyone else!
Wow, that's cool. So bolts right up and secures like normal? The gap in the back isn't the worst. Could possible trim tabs or just put on something of a gasket around the back to "seal" it up. Maybe some kind of foam or rubber weather stripping.
Yes it bolted up and no modification were required although i will add some clear 3m tape to the tank to add some protection from the seat rubbing the paint. That’s just out of precaution, i do not believe this seat fits any tighter than the factory one. That’s is the same seat i got, and I’ve still not had a whole lot of ride time on it, but i rode it to work for 40 miles one morning and i loved it. Riding back though after the seat sat in 90 degree plus weather for 9 hours, i could definitely feel that the gel had softened up and it was not as comfortable as before, and probably comparable to the factory seat. My favorite thing that this seat added was a more flat riding position. Since the rear of the seat sticks up more, it seems to sit in a flat position which i really think helped comfort.
I did not get a whole lot of riding time this summer (maybe 400 miles) due to an internship, but when i rode it, it was a huge upgrade unless it had sat in the sun for some time and the gel had softened. The seat sits more flat in my opinion, which was also more comfortable to me. Overall the purchase was worth it, but i can see that some even more comfortable options would definitely be nice to have.
