I don't have experience with the SC carbon but my son's Corbin is slippery. I bought just the all carbon cover from SC to possibly change out the gripper but decided not to. I laid it on the existing seat and didn't like the amount of movement.

Personal preference of course.

Call me an ex-KLR rider with bad habits but I got

one of these http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Comfor.../dp/B006JMK7N8
and I also put one of these http://www.amazon.com/Northeast-Prod...s=therm-a-seat underneath it in back to extend my pillion room and comfort and we couldn't be happier .
All for about thirty bucks .

I believe Seat Concepts probably needs some more pics a just a little bit more info on the website so people know what they're getting. But i've only heard good things about the comofort of their seats.

So if I leave the airbox open and install the stock muffler, will I be OK if I don't adjust the carb?

Only one way to find out. I run an FCR with an open airbox and stock muffler. Don't see why you'd have to make changes, the stock muffler might be heavy but still flows fairly well for an OEM unit.

with the help of the car in front of me. Had the sun in my eyes so visibilty sucked and a pedestrian jumped out out in the front the car in front of me, but I didn't see him braking until it was too late. I managed to brake enough to reduce the impact quite a bit, but not enough to avoid the impact altogether.

Pissed Supermoto fender causes damage

I see the problem. The front fender made you do it.
That tire has too much traction so when you really get on the brakes, this is what happens.
Now if you were running a knobby...

No injuries?
Other damage?

Excellent time to upgrade the front forks...
Most of us don't need a reason, any excuse will do.
