Renazco Racing seat

I finally had a nice day that I could try out my F800 seat that Renazco Racing did for me and after an hour of riding, I had no monkey butt and I could walk normally. Before I could only stand about 30 mins of riding and then I felt like I had been riding a horse all day long.

Their workmanship is fantastic and I highly recommend them.

They only get better the more they get broken in too! I have been doing 250-400 miles a weekend for the past couple of weeks and it is getting better (plus my ass is breaking in too).

Thanks runnin4melife for the photo.

I was going to take a picture of mine, but yours is exactly like the one I got, so thanks for posting a picture of yours.

Like everyone else has said, the seat is fantastic.

I'm also looking to fix this problem. I just filled out their form yesterday and submitted it.

I'm assuming you added 2" the std height seat. If you don't mind me asking, what's you inseam measurement? Mine was 33 1/2 with my boots on and was thinking the 2" taller seems about right for what I'm looking for.

Thanks

I've had this on my bike for a while. It is an essential upgrade to the stock seat IMO. As pointed out, I also had the front scoop of the stock seat eliminated. I had mine made similar to the dirt bike seats I have had made by Renazco with a narrower front for more control and a wider back for cruising. The only thing I have done in all my subsequent Renazco seats is to do the whole thing in suede. The suede is fantastic for off road riding in terms of comfort and the right amount of grip.

So I think I'll go with 2" extra height.

I was thinking full suede too, how is sude to clean and maintain?

Looks like they are booking for June at this point. It sounds like the wait will be worth it though.

Suede got too hard for me, but I am in the desert, where everything dries up.

I didn't get the suede, but I had to wait 4 months when I ordered mine and it was definitely worth it.

I sprayed mine with some leather water proofing treatment after talking with Dan at Renazco. I dont sweat it if it rains on the seat, but I do pull it off the bike when I wash it. My full suede seats on my enduro bikes take a lot more abuse and I just wipe them down when I clean the bike. The vinyl sides on my F800 seat are definitely easier to clean I just like the feel and the amount of grip the suede offers. Call the guys at Renazco and they can give you more insite on the various fabric options. Yes the wait is long but it is well worth it.
