Well that's pretty cool! Thanks for sharing.

How does it feel compared to the OEM Tracer seat?

its higher due to the extra padding of the tenere seat , but makes a bit difference . with the stock seat [ i found a little better than early model ] i could still feel bumps in the road , that has all gone , changed the bike completely ..so i ask myself "why didnt yamaha come out with a propper thick seat for the gt " ???

I gave thought to modifying my stock seat pad just yesterday. Seeing this gives me hope for more comfortable long range touring.

Thanks for sharing!
