Have you asked any other manufacture to not brand their product? Probably not.

Think about it this way. What kind of company does not want their name on their product? I'll tell you. A company that makes cheap crap. Look at any top quality product. Is it branded with their name? Of course it is.

It's a piece of art and the logo is the artist signature. Get it?
funny you brought this up..... I have removed all KTM logos on my bike.
no I haven't ground the side cover but I have on an old Honda before.

not a very good argument for a product.

motorcycles especially dirtbikes have too many logos as is.

but I will gladly cover my moto van in stickers supporting Seat Concepts and other moto brands and rock bands.

I was at Seat Concepts on Wed to PU a seat for my X-Challenege. Saw the new logo and it really isn't that bad. Maybe not as nice as an embroided logo but really not that obnoxious either. I wouldn't worry about it, I'd just buy the seat and have my ass be happy

2008 DRZ 400e

Great reviews for Seat Concepts but hard to find specifics, Im looking for feedback on seat height... I am 5'7" 165 lbs and have a 2008 DRZ400e, I cannot touch my heals to the dirt and I understand the added width of the CS seat adds to my problem.
Im looking for feedback from others concerning height, I like the standard CW seat but may need to order the low, please give me your thoughts.
Thanks

Thumb Feedback for ya

...The good part is the seats, at least the SC's I've owned, are wider at the rear for sit up and commute, but taper to the front for offroad work.
I tested mine for a full three hours yesterday, and it's the best of both worlds.
FYI, mine is a 'Low" version



Looks like they make a Low, Standard, and High for your DRZ friend!

Rapid Dog is right in that it stays narrow at the front. I just put one on my DRZ 400sm, and it looks/feels great. I asked about the low seat before I ordered the standard height, and they indicated you lose some comfort due to less foam.

I currently have S wheels on mine, and I'm 5'8" with a 30" inseam, so I can't flat foot mine, but just hang off to one side when it's time to put a foot down.

Yes being narrow at the front should help my height problem, I guess I should call them and tell them what Im looking for and see what is recomended.

Thanks

Hey Rapid Dog, I missed that you have the low version, are you ok with it? Would you do it again now that you have tried it? I would like to go with the low but I cant seem to get good feedback on how people like it compared to the standard.
Thanks

Keeping in mind that the first aftermarket seat that comes to my mind is Corbin, and they use a small side tag. (I've had 3 Corbins, and disliked them all)

But I could live with the logo. What about a seat for a 2000 WR400? I don't know the other models well enough to know if anything is cross-compatible.

Thanks!

I needed the low because my bike has a longer shock. I had a standard on my WR250R and it was great, though I took the bread knife to it too. It was a tall bike too.
I'd say if height isn't an issue, go for the standard. No matter what, more foam = more buttcomfort.
That said, the SC foam is just the right density weather thick or thin.
My seat-o-the-pants impression (PUN INTENDED) is that the low is no worse than the low E.I. nor the KTM Powersports Soft I tried.
I normally ride 15-20 miles to a trail and 3-4 hours at a stretch all in all. (Riding undies help big time!)

If long dualsport rides is your normal deal, get the standard, you can always trim it down.
The kits are simple easy to modify.

Thanks Rapid Dog (nice bike you have there), getting the standard would give me the option of cutting it down if the need is there.... I do plan on long dualsport rides.

Thanks again

FWIW... My buddy and I both purchased seats for our identical TE630s last Aug. I also struggled with which version due to my 30" inseam. I finally decided on the standard height because it looked in pictures to have a wider seating area. By buddy went with the low version. We've traded off bikes and both agree the standard seat is better. There is a rise 1/2 way back on the low seat that you feel at the back of your butt after a while. I don't know if all models would have this rise?
