The first seat was too hard and the second seat was too soft .... stop me if you have heard this story/fable before .. lol
Installing the (just right, hopefully) Seat Concepts Version 2 for the 300. The shape is the same as stock. I will remove some of the foam (underneath cut) from the thigh area and the hump. I do not cut the top side , its tricky, makes a mess and tough to make it look smooth. I ordered the vinyl/grip combination cover.
Will post a followup after my first six + hour long day of riding.
One hour riding time, the kit or entire seat is well worth the money, IMO best mod for this bike. Its a touch firmer than my Honda CTX but far superior to the stock seat. I now have four smiling cheeks .....
Go to the FAQ section at Seat Concepts. The T-50 staples are a must to use (they won't bend). I used a new air stapler, could easily used my old electric if I had ever tried the T-50 staples. You could wrestle with a manual stapler (IF the T-50s fit) because the plastic is still somewhat malleable when new.
2017 Versys 300 ABS, the fastest one ... green
