Seat Concepts seats are constructed using a foam material that is a much higher quality than OEM seat foam. Our proprietary formula provides a more plush and active ride, while still offering the necessary amount of support. Our unique comfort shape maintains a similar contour to stock at the front of the seat so the rider’s legs are not spread farther apart, but tapers out towards the mid-point to distribute rider weight over a greater area.
On this model, we built up the front of the seat, but dished out the rear slightly to level out the angle of the rider platform, and reduce the slope-into-tank feeling of the stock seat.
These features combine to offer a custom seat feel, and provide greater enjoyment and increased range on a long commute, or adventure ride!
The rear foam and cover kit is made from the same High-quality foam as the front seat and has a slightly wider and more dished out shape. Additionally, the front of the platform has been built up slightly to help keep the passenger from sliding into the rider.
Rear covers for OEM seat:
We offer a matching rear cover for your OEM rear seat. Just remove the old cover and install this cover for a matching set.
Available as a Foam and Cover Kit for the OEM pan or Complete Seat. The Foam & Cover Kit DOES NOT include the pan . The Complete Seat comes with an aftermarket pan with the foam and cover kit assembled, ready to ride. The rear seat comes as a Cover Only or Foam & Cover Kit. The rear seat DOES NOT come with a pan.

SEAT CONCEPTS is a world-class manufacturer of high quality and great value motorcycle comfort and race seats. All seats are manufactured in the United States. Seat Concepts has been making Off Road and Adventure Bike seats, as well as custom seats for classic and sports bikes and now expanding into the cruiser (think HD) market, for over ten years. With a range of covers, foam densities and heights to suit every type of rider (Low, Standard and Tall) for hundreds of bike models and years, Seat Concepts probably has a seat kit or a complete seat to fit your bike. Our most popular seat finish is a “Carbon Fibre Gripper” cover that offers a level of friction to help stop you sliding every time you hit the brakes and a standard density foam is suitable for most riders. The real trick is how Seat Concepts seats support the riders hipbones with their wider than standard seats and superior density foam. You can’t turn your two wheels into a lounge chair, however, if you can extend your ride time and comfort throughout the day, then Seat Concepts if probably the best value seat solution you can invest in.

Problem solvedBy: Philip Kern on 15 January 2018For three years I rode a 2013 R1200GS. With just a BeadRider on the seat, I had no problem doing 12 hour days, and rode in comfort to the top end, to Tasmania (with the help of a ferry), etc. But the KMs started to add up, so I traded it for a new leftover 2016. The bike has all manner of engaging features, and is a winner in most respects, but I never came to terms with the bike, and even began to wonder if I had made a mistake for one simple reason. The seat was a killer. I would start squirming after an hour, and never could get right. After 40 years of riding and a bunch of bikes, I thought maybe I'm getting old, or too padded down there, or something. I'd never had a problem before. My first attempt (after the BeadRider) was a pair of Moto-Skivvies. They're great, and will be a regular part of my riding gear going forward, but they didn't come close to solving the problem. I thought about a custom seat, and then considered a Touratech or Wunderlich seat. Extensive online research suggested a) I might never get comfortable, b) the brands I named are expensive and some swear by them while others swear at them, c) going custom has pros and cons due to the height of the bike (ie too much extra width can make it hard for some of us to reach the ground). So what was I to do? Another suggestion from my online research (option d) was the Seat Concepts approach. Apparently they sell denser foam padding. That makes sense. My OEM seat is soft. So soft that in the showroom it feels plush, but quickly becomes non-supportive. Also, the Seat Concept shape differs from the OEM seat. The original kept sliding me forward. The result was that the soft part of my anatomy--not intended for sitting on--was bearing more weight than it should have. So I was uncomfortable front and back, no matter what I tried. The Seat Concepts seat, with its denser foam, solved the first problem by being more supportive. It solved the second problem by putting a scoop in about the centre of the seat, so I no longer slide forward. Instead, I get placed in the middle, and now have the option of moving forward or back rather than having the bike dictate to me. My problem is entirely corrected, and for less money than the other options I'd read about. I should add that I've always had a great experience every time I drop in to AdventureMoto. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgable. I've bought a few things from them, all of which have performed as advertised. p.s. this review is of the Seat Concepts front complete seat.
