Does anyone have any idea of seats that may fit on the XT against the tank? I remember someone finding a modern bike seat that fit quite well but was a little narrow, but i can't seem to find it via google.

On another note, not looking forward to how dirty the XT is after it's been in a barn for almost a year with little riding.

EDIT
If you do the swap without a longer shock out back, your going to end up with a chopper.

BTW that shim/spacer cost me $20 at the machine shop.
