Been happy with Seat Concepts on my DRZ and on my Husky.

I put a Guts seat (ribbed cover/medium foam) on the Husky last year and it is much less comfortable than the SC, but a bit better than oem. The ribs don't seem to help that much compared to a fresh gripper seat. The SC was quite a few years old and not grippy any more, plus it was starting to tear at the edges.

Thanks joe,

I have been looking at either Corbin, seat concepts or moose racing. It’s really the only brands I’m familiar with.

How does SC compare to Corbin?

I had a Renazco on my 950 and KLR. It was reasonably comfy but not cushy.

I have a Renazco on my DR. Its a been a good seat, pretty comfy and has lasted very well. A decade and 20K miles or so.
There are probably cheaper options

Not sure how much of a rush you are in. If we could get some half decent weather we could meet up for a ride and swap bikes.

Thank you all for your input, I just ordered a seat concepts kit.

After listening to your input and reviewing many other seats and comparing prices it seemed the majority of people loved their seat concepts and felt no buyers remorse.

Now I need to go buy a new tool :) Industrial stapler here I come..... I'm envisioning my wife walking into the room and finding me stapled to the wall rolling her eyes and all I can say is, what time is dinner honey?
