Yep, they are the Wally World ATV covers. My buddy still uses his, I felt like I slid forward on mine too much and have it off right now, but I'm going to put it back on and give it another try. Tryiny to figure out if it's a little more slippery than the factory cover. It seemed to me that I would slid forward every time I hit the brakes, but I have noticed a bit of the same on the stock cover...

As for feel, it feels pretty good to me. My riding buddy who has issues sitting long rides due to his prostrate loves his. It adds almost an inch of firm padding with a large "waffle" type surface. For $15 it's worth a try, if it doesn't work out you can always sell it to a KLR guy!

As for the height, I don't really notice it although it's a bit higher, by the time it compresses you are gaining maybe 1/2 inch.

I have a tall firm DR seat with a blue cover that I might sell, it's a little too tall for me at 5'10", maybe 2" taller and really firm. I liked it, but it's just a bit too tall. I may ride it one more time before I decide to let it go but shoot me a pm if interested.
