There's a reason that guy had the seat modified. The stock one sucks and will continually push you into the tank. Rich's makes great (expensive) seats. I would recommend selling the Rich's seat on the Forum) and getting a Corbin since they supply the seat pan and all. If you want to try a stock seat, you can PM me. We can get together and you can try mine. It's sitting on the shelf. I'm keeping it until I decide whether or not to have it modified to suit me and sell the Corbin. The Corbin is a huge improvement over the stock one but I would like a little more lateral thigh support. I have also checked on Craigs List for a section for motorcycle parts and there is only a "Motorcycles" section. No parts, so I think it makes things harder to be seen so they can be sold. That's why I would say that if you're selling something for a Versys, this forum would be the best even though someone usually ends up paying shipping. And by the way, how do you like 52 degrees on the first day of July?
