2007 WR450 Seat seems REALLY hard...
Posted January 31, 2007 - 07:06 PM
how comfortable is the seat? I have seen and sat on a few of these bikes,
and the seat seems to be no better than a 2x4! Almost as bad as the
KTM's from several years ago...
If I am mistaken, please tell me.

SICASS has standard soft, standard super soft, tall soft and tall firm seats.
I am going with standard soft They all come with a carbon fiber look.
Pretty cool! Hope this helps you out.

The BIG issue though is why the butt gets sore. The answer is oxygen deprivation to the cells in your butt. Just the same reason people get bed sores. You sit too long, restricting blood flow to those cells. They respond by screaming for you to GET UP and let some blood flow their way. Regardless of your bike seat, this is important. I habitually ride at least a 10/20 ratio. 10klm standing and 20 sitting minimum. Terrain also dictates posture. The key is to NOT let your butt get to the pins and needles stage. Make a habit of standup riding.
Regarding the seat density: Soft foam seats tend to mush and pinch my butt, creating more surface area that restricts my blood flow. My 04'WR stock seat is great it that it is firm, yet absorbs hard shocks to the tail end. One man's "Bare End" opinion.

Its like cycling, ask Lance Armstrong. The more you ride the more you get used to it. eventually you wont even notice not having a seat at all. Spend the time in the saddle and get used to it. If you want comfort buy an sofa
I already have a sofa - it's called a Suzuki DRZ 400.

You need to slide bare butt across rough concrete (like your dog does on the carpet when his butt itches) to get in shape to ride.
Jeez, my dog wasn't scratching his butt on the carpet, he was wiping it on the carpet. Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "skid marks".
