About a year ago, I bought a SC foam base for the DRZ, and I made my own seat cover, because I couldn't afford the whole enchilada from SC. I LOVE THIS SEAT. It's been so much better than the stock seat, and two other replacements. I can actually ride all day with only minor discomfort now. Bravo Seat Concepts!
I made a renazco style cover for mine, with the suede top and heavy vinyl sides. Came out sweet. I spent dozens of hours on it, but it was worth it. I learned to use a large industrial machine as well.

I should have had bundy do this one like he did my ktm. That turned out perfect. I hate to buy a tool that i will never use

My order arrived in a matter of days -- then, of course, life intervened, and I didn't get a chance to install it until last week (left the cover in the sun for a couple of hours, as suggested, and used my non-powered staple gun, slowly and carefully).

I would apologize for not posting up my very positive experience, but, you know, I've been out riding my KLR . . .this seat has made a world of difference, for me . . . . . . .

Huzzah, Seat Concepts!

I used 1/4" staples, and yes, there was some times where it would not go all the way in, but I was persistent. Maybe I should get a pic......

Took the bike out for a ride; What a difference! These seats are a huge step up from the stocker.

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.
I've got my SC seat on the Dakar and it's perfect. I had it made flat so I could move back and forth as the stock Dakar seat is stepped and always kept me too close to the tank and bars. Leather top with carbon vinyl sides. Super comfy, able to move to relieve pressure points and no sticky, sweaty feeling

I'd love to see pics of SC seats on a 950 SE if anyone has any.

Better late than never.




Parked in the shade at work...



Seat Concepts makes top notch stuff, very pleased with their work and products. I have one of their seats on my KLR and one on my TE610 too.

I replaced a different aftermarket seat on my Husky with a SC model, the Brand X one was too tall and had a weird hump in the middle, the Seat Concepts one is flatter (yet more comfortable) and therefore makes riding the bike way better.
Feel like I'm sitting "in" the bike rather than hovering over it.
