PostSubject: SEAT PROBLEM   Mon Jun 25, 2012 9:47 am

Hi all,

I have a problem with my WR250X: I am 187 cm high and during the week I use the bike to go work (about 32 km every day)
During the trip home - work the bike is ok but the seat is a little bit hard.

During the week end I use the bike with my girlfriend she is 165 cm high but every time she swear because she seats pratically on the plastic.

I love to ride with her going to sea or somewhere kumbaya

I have seen seat concepts or corbin but I don't know if these seats solve the problem for passenger.

Is there something to install to give more comfort to the passenger? Rolling Eyes

Get a second bike so she can really ride with you. thumb

Have you tried to sit closer to the tank so she can sit farther down?

moving closer to the tank can be a short term solution but it is pretty uncomfortable for the rider. (ask me how I know budah )

Most of the aftermarket seats seem to have extra padding also in the back and are a bit wider. Do a thorough search to look for a seat which has more padding for the passenger. I remember seeing one on here once which looked very wide at the rear.

Alternatively, have a custom one made for you. Just gotta look for a right shop and you might be able to get away with a price not that much more than a "standard" aftermarket seat, yet you can choose your own amount of padding and width for the rear thumb I'm sure your girl would appreciate it wink

NOT the Spiral Step-seat.

It's harder and more narrow than stock. Shog

The Seargent seat is wider at the back. Butt it's a very firm seat!
The only way to fit a longer seat would be to stretch the bike. poser2

I long ago removed the rear passenger footpegs, it's not really a two-up kind of bike...

Thanks for your answer.... Yes the bike is really short

I was thinking to fill and raise the seat and then make an extra piece that come above the plastic...

This should be very confortable http://www.nevadalabs.it/lastremoto.html
And I have to buy a new and bigger cover too

What do you think?

On my local dualsport forum guys have been raving about Fisher. Looks they can mod any seat:

If its just for commuting, buy her a sheepskin butt pad or an airhawk. Both work very well. I've owned and used both and take both on trips.
