Best touring seat xr650r
 
Hello.
I love my medium red pig, and the road is calling again.
As a new member on here I have a bunch of questions for youall, and here comes the first.... :evil

I have cut my seat, glued and shaved softer foam, added sheep skin, and my ass still gets super sore after 3 hours. It is simply not wide enough in the back for cruising. curious if any body on here has experience with either a renazco racing seat or corbin or anything else. I am leaning toward the corbin due to the fact I can simply order one and have it here in 2 weeks. A part of me wants to keep the stock seat they way I have it set up because on twistys or mixed offroad conditions its fine, but for those long huals btw states or moods its a real B*tch.

Also debating putting the 7 gal IMS tank I have to match the cruiser seat and dirt bags I ordered. Current tank is 4 gal IMS which if I keep it under 70mph gets me a little over 100 miles.

Thanks
Matt

Im getting 43mpg with 15/48 gearing which is about 100 miles for the stock 2.5g....

Well that sounds wonderful. I have 15/45 air box mod and properly jetted stock carb. Do you ever go 70-75 on the freeway? mine may be more like 3.6 or something I bought it off some c@nt on eBay after my last one cracked. ;)

my cruise speed is 60-70., yes lots of freeway. Im running stock carb on an uncorked bike. 175 main jet

I regularly hit 70-75 miles without touching reserve.

My numbers may be off. I think I get somewhere like 35-40 if I don't push it too hard. The point is I need a seat sufficient for lots of miles. I went to BMW and checked out financing options on an f800, but it's sort of just not me. expensive and not really that attractive (like my last girlfriend). I love my piggy to pieces and I trust her.

Seat
 
Check out Renazco for a seat option. They did a seat for me for a past DR650SE. Very happy with the end result.

175 main, 68s and the upgraded needle. Sea level. That 43mpg is street only.

sunnybandit 07-10-2013 09:25 AM

I can't remember..... B53E on the 3rd clip?

I really wanted a renazco, but ended up for a seatconepts. I will say for the price difference, I think I made a good decision. I think it may be possible for the renazco to be a finer seat, but for double the cost, and 20-30 times the wait.....

Maybe someday I'll order up a renazco to test it out, but for my trip I just ran out of time and money.


I'm a bit interested in your IMS 4.6 getting you only 100m per tank. I know I generally get 130+ miles and never even hit reserve.

I am adding the Acerbis tank to my bike for my planned TAT trip this summer. I've had a few battles fitting it, but after a lot of cursing I went in and reroute all of my wiring and cabling, and as of last night, its fitting pretty smoothly. The factory mounts suck for Acerbis, so pick up one of Hodakas mounts.

Had a Renazco on my 610, it was worlds better than stock, but not as good as the Corbin I had on my 2002 XR650R. I think a stock XR650R seat is as good as a Renazco. Have to be careful with a Corbin, it doesn't fit the Acerbis 6.3 tank, that's how I got to spend a ton of time on a stock XR650R seat which I don't find all that bad.

sunnybandit 07-10-2013 11:05 AM

Thanks guys. Spoke to Renzaco who I found out himself is a 650r man. Like said above its a time issue so if he can't find me a spot it's goina be Corbin or seat concepts.
