A+ Modification. My A** is grateful. Best bang for the buck seat mod. Will use Alaska Leather Seat cover when doing longer tour. Very happy with the product.

I purchased a SC upgrade for my Husky TE630.

Night and day from the factory Husky seat. I would recommend SC to anyone.

Was home today so I installed the Seat Concepts foam and cover as soon as the UPS guy dropped it off. I opted for the low foam and embossed vinyl cover. I'm not a fan of gripper seats and I am on tippy toes while seated with gear. This was very easy to install and I can almost flat foot now which is nice haha. Didn't get to ride yet but just sitting on it I can tell it is much firmer yet more comfortable because it is wider than stock where you sit.

Tool used:
Craftsman pneumatic stapler with 1/4" stainless staples. I like shorter staples, less chance of poking through the pan at the "tongue" or at the very rear of the seat.
Flat blade screwdriver and pliers for removing staples from old cover
Heat Gun to heat up cover to make it more stretchable. It is rainy here today so no sitting it out in the sun to heat up. (not shown)
Spray Adhesive (not shown)

After four good hundred mile rides, 50/50 dirt - some radical stuff, and street, I'm happy to report that my arse is happy. Two thumbs up for Seat Concepts. I went super soft, standard height, gripper top and carbon sides. I float off the ground at 135ish lb.s and have a bad hip and it's no longer an issue. When I get gonzo I wear a pair of Forcefield padded knickers under my MX gear. They have a coccyx protector that is a bother on anything but a track bike but with the SC seat I don't even notice it. The soft foam gave me a loss of feel of the rear end so I've compensated by drifting more extreme. Very happy

poser2 poser2 Yes, I read it as the soft foam put your arse to sleep. I was laughing too hard to understand the rest of the sentence. I was going to reply that you should have a doctor check that out until I figured out what you actually meant. Intentional or otherwise, Thanks for the laugh!!!!!

Does the low cut seat make it feel like you want to slide forward all the time? I noticed this with most lowered seats. Had Fisher redo my stock seat & it's about as close as you can get without having the seat slope forward too much.

The lowered seat does slope forward, I would get the regular height seat and a lowering link if you need a lower seat height.

I do not feel like I am sliding forward anymore than the stock seat. I don't know if it's because it's wider or that the foam is better. But I am very happy with the low seat.

I tried the lower foam, sent by mistake, just laying it on the pan and it sloped way too much for me. The regular height feels like it has more slope than stock. Bothered me for a bit but I've gotten used to it - or complacent. So much more comfortable than stock that I'd keep it even if Motokid snuck into my shop and painted it pink.

From Seat Concepts or Wheeling. You are going to pay the same price, you won't find it cheaper than $159.99 unless you find a used one. If you use the ADVRIDER.COM code mentioned earlier in this thread on Seat Concepts site you will save $15 so basically free shipping. You can't use the code at Wheeling Cycle Supply.

Awesome, good luck with it! Make sure you use a pneumatic stable gun if you are installing it yourself. A hand stapler will not penetrate the seat pan.

Hi all! I'm thinking of picking up one of the low seats for my (new to me) wrr. Can you reuse the old foam & seat cover? Or did most of you just trash it. thanks!

Just wanted to post my install guide and review of the seat in this topic.

Install guide

I will update this post with a review when the weather permits.

So after a summer of riding I have to say I am happy with the seat.  Most of my riding is a short commute to work, where I have no issues.  On my longer Sunday adventure rides there really wasn't much of an improvement because of the increased incline in the seat.  My riding pants would start to ride up on the goods after too long making it uncomfortable.  If I were to do it again I would get the standard seat concepts foam and figure out a way to lower the suspension an inch.

My initial impression:

5'9" and 32" inseam.
I purchased the low version because I figured it might lower it enough so I can have two feet flat on the ground.  I sat on the bike to get a quick feel and it seems like I am dipping forward into the seat.  Like there is too much of an angle.  

I am excited to see how it feels on the road!
