Yep, the dakar.

You're never going to get away from this bikes prominent faux tank design, unless you go as far as notmybikemodelname and plastic surgery.

Tall version? you mean the one listed for the Dakar being taller than the standard gs?

What do you mean moving onto Dakar stature.

How much is postage to Australia?

I've moved the pegs back as well, which is just making the bike feel cramped. I hadn't riden it much for a long while and just can't understand how I've ever thought it was comfortable.

Got the firm foam and it is much much better than a famous brand aftermarket seat that I paid more than twice as much for..and didn't have to wait 6 weeks to get it.
Pics? I've got the SC on my WR250, contemplating one for my 950SM.

I was thinking plain/carbon but I see that combo isn't offered for the Dakar. I'm thinking the embossed cover might hold dirt too much. What do you reckon, the gripper/carbon?

The gripper will hold the MOST dirt! I can do plain carbon, but that will take a couple of days to sew up.
The dimples in the embossed a very small.

Thanks for offering to customize the cover. How durable is the embossed material and what combo would you recommend most? Daily commuter and riding tarmac twisties/gravel and dirt roads on weekends.

Wasn't too hard to install once I got the air gun. Very happy with the seat. Only one real ride with it but the seat went unnoticed for the first time :) . It was a little slippery at first but must have been broke in some as the traction was just right on a dual sport ride.

Got my seat installed today. Didn't even need an air-staple gun. Standard stanly staple gun did a great job.

Surebonder Staple Gun

I too tried the "craftsman" staple gun, then an electric one from Home Depot. Both were failures...

Read up about it and ordered one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Surebonder-960...der+staple+gun

Incredible difference. If you have an air source, invest the $25, you won't be sorry!

The seat that Seat Concepts made for my KLX is a night and day difference from the stocker!

Looking for the one for the Super Tenere that is in development. Hurry guys! My ass hurts!
