This is my first bike. Totally love it, and I have nothing to compare the seat to, I just know it's not comfy. I ordered the seat concepts one and the clarke 4.7 tank. Not sure what I'm gonna upgrade from there.

Just saw some for sale in the flea market. Not sure if they're the type you're looking for or not. $32 bucks. Ad posted by inmate named Chuckracer. Good luck!

Thank you, Barron, Steve, and Tom. I ordered the CR High Bend handlebars and some grip heaters. I hope to get these items installed this weekend.

Thank you, Clint. I just ordered the Tusk Grip Heater Kit from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC.

I'll let everyone know how well this kit installs and performs.

Waiting on the brown truck myself. He's bringing Symtec heaters and Easton Bars. One of the previous owners had heaters at one time because there's a switch attached to the headlight assembly that I can only assume was used for the heaters and it's on the left side. I'm close, I'm very close to riding again.

I have the KX High bend with no risers because they were a tad taller than CR high. Still too low but the stock cables are fine.

The thing to know about grip heaters is the left will always feel colder than the right because the bar on the left side soaks up some of the heat whereas the right side of the bar is insulated a little by the throttle tube, especially if you're running a plastic throttle tube. I've heard there's a way to make the left "feel" equal to the right but I can't remember what it is. Also, the backs of your hand can still feel cold while the part actually touching the grip will be hot. It's a strange sensation.

Oh yeah.... You fix that problem with heat shrink on the handlebar. Never did it myself, but I remember the post.

Do the grip heaters work good, i would think the bar would be a big heat sink?
Waiting on brown also, got a new set of rims and tires from the real big man marko on the way.
I am running cr highs with no risers, cables were fine.

You need to buy a short piece of 1" heat shrink tubing to put one or two layers of it on the left bar before you put on the left grip heater and then the left grip. The heat shrink will insulate the metal bar from the heating element.

I don't need heated gloves... I just need gloves that go up above my jacket cuffs! It sucks having water going up your sleeve on the way to school. Plus my gloves are perforated leather, so not waterproof at all.

I need me some waterproof gauntlet gloves... but I'm a poor, unemployed, disabled vet, full-time student (and my wife won't let me buy new gloves). Sorry, I'm done wallowing in self-pity now. Now to wallow in a bottle of beer instead...
