FYI - On a mid-80's BMW they wind up being pretty soft (IMO) ... could be a perception issue ... but I think it's due to the much larger weight of the Rubber Cow

I used the DR650 head bearings ... the outside diameter matched the BMW's frame perfectly.

(Edit: From DRZ650 to DR650)

Looks like a Wassel Trials seat just like the one I bought last year. I guess I should put it up in the flea market because it won't fit the bike I bought it for.
