i thought they weren't making the 800GS seats with suede anymore because the material shrinks slightly and pulls the nose away from the 'tank' up front..

anyways i got one with the vinyl cover and about 1.5" taller height and love it..no more feeling like the boys are getting crushed, no burning after 20-30 minutes and the additional height is welcome when going from seated to standing and back again..
being 6' tall i can touch 1-footed at traffic lights.. coming from a dirt bike background, that feels just fine.
i swapped seats with a friend mid-ride so he could try my saddle and that uncomfortable feeling was back almost immediately.
not surprising i had a little difficulty getting my friend to stop and give my seat back!
anyone know if they still require your old seat pan or do they stock them now?
