I raised the stock seat 1/4 inch, not enough, still sliding forward into the tank. Survived a 1,500 mile trip through S. Wisconsin recently. The seat is not baaaaad, but I think that it should be a bit better.
Picked up my Concepts seat and had one two hour ride on it. Time to get off. I hoping that it needs a break-in period like a corbin does. Either to conform the seat to my bottom, or to conform my bottom to the seat. I do not slide to the tank on the Concept seat. Hoping to put on 600 miles this Weekend and get the something broken in. Riding West to Fort Francis, Ont, across the backroads to Dryden and return to Thunder Bay. Alzheimers Ride for Memories.
Note: My heavy duty hand stapler would not drive the staples into the plastic seat base. So I paid an upholsterer $30 to put it on, the other option was $135 for an air stapler. Could not find a cheaper one in town at the time.
I put a Russel seat on my Kaw Voyageur, it was great. Sargent on my KLR 650, at bit of an improvement.
