I put a Seat Concepts seat on my '12 KTM 690 ER and it is great. I have ridden several hundred miles in a day with no problems. The only thing to be aware of is that if you like to move back on the seat while standing, it does get a little wide.

+1 on Seat Concepts. I have had one now for almost 2 years and it is great! Inexpensive compared to the other options too.

Seat Concepts is the best value in a great motorcycle seat by far.

I put a Seat Concepts on my DRZ 400 a couple of years ago and absolutely love it.

I've never heard of Fisher, but just like the 7 guys above me, the Seat Concepts I got for my DR650 is spot on. A true all-day saddle.

+1 on Seat Concepts

I bought a seat from them recently, so not a lot of saddle time yet but it's clearly nice, a big improvement over stock on my 350 exc.

I went with one pre-installed on a new seat pan and there was minor damage during shipping. I emailed them with a pic and a fellow named Lendon got back to me within a day and had a replacement cover in the mail for me the next day. Free shipping to Canada for the replacement too! Real stand up operation.

Lendon is a great guy and stands behind his product,Ive had 3 of the SC seats,one DRZe,one still on my 530 and one on my DR650. They work great and dont cost an arm and a leg or take for ever to get one.

I have had a Seat Concepts kit on my KLX for about a year. It's the most comfortable seat I've ever sat on. On this bike it does get wide for technical riding.

I just installed one on my DR this morning. I got rid of a Corbin and replaced it with an SC kit.

And I have a kit ready to go on my DL.

I don't think there's a better seat out there for my butt.

Fisher Seat

I sent my stock seat to Fisher with my specific request for foam density etc and they redid it for $175 plus shipping. It is wider, taller, and better. Now I ride all day.
