My biggest issue with the 2010 V so far (after only 2 days of riding) is the seating position. Not so much the padding, just that all my weight seems to be directed on my pelvic bone instead of my butt, almost like I am straddling a saddle. Not sure if the mod addresses this. I am 6'-2" with a 34" inseam. HELP.
I feel your pain, 6'3 and 36" here. Copy of Spencer email for detailed info.
The Versys riders area can be reshaped internally and remain at stock height for more rearward bias, with better support, and to distribute your weight across the entire seat rather than concentrating it on the crowned center, without effecting the nose shape so you will still have freedom of movement in the twisties and enhanced position and comfort for day long rides. I also create a softer frontal midline to take pressure off of the crotch. Due to the surprisingly thin foam depth in the actual seating area (the seat pan is angled upward and has a big indentation) I would strongly suggest adding the Supracor suspension to the riders section if you plan to ride any distance. It provides a more form fit, reduces vibration in the seat, and dampens road shock, while not effecting the angle correction or final seat height. The Supracor/LD material works for the rider because it is a dynamic material with an instant rebound. It moves with you, working with your weight shifts for proper bike control. If you use a material in the riders section that "takes a set" it locks you in one position and fights against you. This is the main problem with foams as the rider is constantly moving, even while cruising the highway you are making small corrections in your weight distribution. .
Pricing would be the standard minimum for a single piece seat of $50 for the actual work to the riders area and a $25 material charge for the Supracor.
A photo of you in riding position is helpful and appreciated, but not an absolute necessity. Each seat is set up specifically for the rider so any additional information you think I may need regarding your position, type of riding, any medical concerns you may have should be listed in the special instructions area on the order form. When you think you have given me too much information, just a little more should be about right.
Feel free to ship at your convenience, all that I ask is that you drop me note when you do so that I can properly set my schedule. My current turnaround with the spring rush is no more than 48 hours so your only real downtime will be in shipping. If you visit my web site you can find the order form as well as my FAQ page which contains more information regarding shipping, payment, and a bunch (probably too much) general information. Contact me any time if you have questions.
Thanks again and ride safe, Spencer
