Saddlemen Seats used my bike for their first R3 Gel seat. Way more comfortable than the stocker. My usual Saturday ride is 350 miles and with the stock seat by the time I made it home my butt would be screaming. I used this one last Saturday and it was much improved. I don't know if they've priced it out yet or not so if interested you might want to give them a call. They did both seats but in the meantime I picked up the expanding seat case which is why the passenger seat isn't mounted. They did a really nice job as you can see.

I had a Saddleman on my Triumph Daytona 675R. LOVED IT!

Like the seat. Which expanding seat case did you get? How much was it?
I bought the Yamaha one from the dealer. He gave me a small discount. I don't recall the price at the moment.

They make some good seats..... for me though, almost the same price, I get custom seats done in S Dakota, real alcantara suede, custom patterns and custom stitching, memory foam, etc. Have had 2 sets, the one on my previous bike held up to racing and track/street use from 2011 to this year. I now have a new bike with a set from the same guy again.


275ish to 325ish for both rider and passenger seat depending on materials and extent of customizing/patterns and such.

Both seats were for my zx10r, the bike pic is my newer 15', alcantara suede with material that looks like rhino liner, but really soft and grippy, white stitching and the memory foam. the other seats side by side are from my 2011' zx10r, white stitching, memory foam, alcantara suede and some material that looks like CF. Held up perfectly, no wear after 4 years in all types of weather, I was very surprised, I expected it to last one season due to past experiences with suede in cars.


I picked those patterns because they weren't too blingy and very functional... simple but effective, but you will his work is definitely functional but show quality.
