I have to say, this seat is the best I've ever owned. When this seat wears out, I'll be sending it back to Seat Concepts for a refresh. No more "perfect seat" searches for me.

Best of luck in your search.
I have Seat Concepts on my 525 EXC and love it. It's super durable and has done it's job in the toughest conditions over the last 2 years.

I visited Seat Concepts shop today and tried 3 different versions for the 990R. I found the one that suited me best and will report my experience with it when I get a chance.

They are working on a 4th version to be out soon.

I had a Renazco on my 950 A and really liked it. I have a SeatConcepts on my Husaberg, an excellent production seat. I can tell that the Renazco was built for me, so if you tell him the right details it is worth the cost.

Went on short ride with the Seat Concepts I chose, not what I'm looking for. It's close, but the a sitting area is too small front to back. It could use 2" more depth front to back. I may try and modify the foam. It is apparent that everyone's ass is a different shape. It is really the most personal part of the bike.

Can some of you Renasco disciples post some pics of your seat?

I've been curious about the 2 Up seat from Seat Concepts. Did you by chance try that model out. I may just make the trip out there as well.

Yes I did. Good seat. The rear seating area does not allow for sliding back and forth transitions real well. It has a pretty good up slop to keep the passenger from sliding into the driver. It works excellent for 2 up. Not my thing.

I decided on getting the 2 Up version for the 990 from Seat Concepts. After a 200 mile shake down ride I was really impressed. I really tried to like the stock seat...

So did I, but somewhere between Seattle and NJ, I decided the stocker's got to go. A perfectly designed, well engineered instrument of PAIN.

I reshaped the foam on my seat concepts low seat. Got it to the shape I like. We will see what happens. I think it takes a 350+ mile ride to really give you and idea if it's a long distance seat.

I don't know what it is about that seat. I do regular 3-5 hour rides on my mountain bikes that have almost no seat, and 10+ hours in my sea kayak with a seat that almost looks like a piece of foam and I'm fine. 45 minutes on the stock seat and I'm spent.

I feel that they shape them for the overall look of the bike to get it sold. Once out the door, you are on your own to figure it out.
