I suspect if it's a gel seat, it's likely a factory optional seat. It would be hard to tell by the base in that the Seat Concepts uses a factory pan. If it's not too much trouble - a photo would help determine if it is in fact a Seats Concept.

In any event, thanks for responding.

I did only one ride ~50 miles and swapped the OEM back on. Might be willing to trade the seat for a set of DRZ forks for my wanna-be JDRocks rat bike.

With the OEM seat, I can flat-foot both sides with riding boots on and with Rawkstar's seat riser.

The gel seat was slightly better in terms of ass pain, and admittedly I haven't tried it with the riser block yet (which would restore some of the height back).

I have a set of Motowerk peg lowering blocks to install for more improvement - I'm almost enough with 2" Rox risers to comfortably stand on the pegs without hunching over. The lowered pegs should be perfect.

If you wants pics, let me know.
