Went with the tall/soft foam and the competition cover.
I hope it is not too soft.
Also ordered the small tool bag that goes on the rear fender, really miss the one the XR.

Mine came with instructions so I knew which end to start at etc. Make sure you remove your seat anchor bolts. Use plennty of staples and remove all of the old staples. Cut and trim as you see fit - after you install.
Make sure you pull towards the centre and not forwards or backwards as this will creat kinks.
Work on both sides at the same time. Get the general tightness and positoning done for all areas first then finish off. This allows you to get the general positioning first and tighten everything up afterwards.
Took me about a half hour all told. Removing the old cover & staples took me the longest.

Use a hair dryer to keep the new cover warm as you go it will stretch tighter. This is a trick an upholstrey friend taught me. This works extremely well on the thick mil seat covers.

You can do it......it isn't hard if you can borrow a pro grade staple gun.

I had 1 problem... the stapler jammed... and when I pulled the mangled staple out, and a new 2nd staple came out and attacked my thumbnail!!
one small extra hole in my hand, for a geat looking, very comfy seat! well worth the effort!

Has any one used the CEET Foam? CEET Racing Are you happy with it?
Looking forward to hearing of your experiences...

I just received my guts seat cover and stiff seat foam, and I think the stiff seat foam is softer than the stock seat foam. I too was thinking of getting something softer, but after considering that sliding forward on a soft seat may be a little difficult. I will post my opinion about the complete package when I get the the beast all put back together. My 2 cents. Good Luck.....
