I recently put in 260 miles in one day. I know I would have had SERIOUS monkey butt if I were still running the stock seat. I switched to Factory FX softer foam (stock height) which made all the difference in the world. I was little tired after that ride but no monkey butt whatsoever. The Guts soft foam is also taller than stock which may be desirable if you have long legs.
$55 (money well spent). Here are the options they offer:
YZ400/426 98-00 STOCK 02-0633
YZ400/426 98-00 SOFT/TALL 03-0145
YZ400/426 98-00 SOFT/STOCK 02-0634
WR400 98-00 SOFT/TALL 03-0146
WR400 98-00 SOFT/STOCK 03-0147

Yes. Stock tank and seat base. Have to remove old foam from the stock seat base and glue the new foam on. Also need new seat cover. I went with the guts cover also.

New, cheaper seats available from SDG
SDG traditionally has manufactured bicycle seats, but the owner also rides a YZ250. I have no experience with their products, but have heard second hand from a few guys that the bike seats are amazing. You may want to check them out.

In the latest Cycle News, which I just received for free, there is an advertisement for replacement MX seats available.
check it out @: www.sdgusa.com
Their advertised price is $85, which includes everything, including the base.
Our "internet wall" came up here at work, so I cannot check it out at this time. But you can!

You may want to consider sending Gutsracing your stock seat base. They will mount the new seat foam and cover for no extra charge. It is well worth it. If you've ever tried to drive a staple into the seat base without the proper staple gun, you'll know what I'm talking about. Plus they will get the cover nice and tight.

I also went with the Guts foam/guts grippy cover. Very nice, very comfortable. I'm 6'1 and used the standard height, but if I could do it again I may have got the tall foam.
