2020 900GT, another seat discussion.

You can't see it when you are sitting on it! Russell has a sport option that is not quite as wide, but if you are going to spend big bucks on a Russell seat, why not get the more comfortable version? 

 

Nah just too damn ugly and old man looking, plus I find my Bagster seat to be very good looking and very comfortable as well. :) I think the 21 and up Tracer is a bit fugly, but the original FJ and Tracer 900 GT look quite pleasing.

Thanks for all the information, I just received a comfort seat set from someone on here that had it for sale. received and looked brand new. Looking forward to a test ride. I'm still experimenting on the seat mod. I stacked the washers and liked the outcome. Now I'm seeing what I can come up with for a permanent solution. 

I just purchased a 2020 900 GT with 1400 miles on it. That is what the comfort seat is going on. I also have my eye on a Corbin that is lightly used. 

I still have my 2015 FJ09 with about 18K on it. Added Terry's seat, side bags, heated grips, and top case.

I have a JK3D kit I pulled of my bike (built a custom seat that eliminates the stock seat forward slope) that you can have. I hate to throw it away, if there is someone who could use it.

I have been happy with my Corbin. Can't compare it to Russell or some of the customs, but I found it a huge difference over stock. Corbin works by improved weight distribution as opposed to being cushy. Some people don't care for the firmness, but I've had good results on long rides with the combo of the Corbin and Winx motorcycle shorts (which I have found much better than bicycle shorts which I used previously).

I have owned 3 Corbins on 3 different bikes, and I can attest to the Bagster being superior in every way "IMHO", plus it got rid of the forward lean and pressure towards the tank.

 I carved out some foam in the seat and put in 2cm gel pad and some extra padding at the front , I just got home from a 2hour trip and it is better,  a bit on the firm side but i think its because the gel is cold . I have 2 sets of seats so i can swap to see what i like best.

Just took the first ride with a comfort seat and seat mod. raised the front 3/4. Rode 150 miles, much better than stock.
