stock seat would be cheap.
tall seat and graphics... Not sure. But I will say they look nice... especially the seat

Thanks for the quick responses. It figures that I need the seat too!!
What are you asking for the stock seat??

I have a WR426 that Im looking to do the conversion on myself...maybe we could work $omething out?
drop me a line if interested, my inet connection is here and there but i usually check the email at least once a day or so..

I will be keeping the stock YZ set up for when I moto (which is what I usually do). The WR tank and seat thing is for when my buddies and I go for cross country/trail/longer rides and the YZ tank capacity just is not enough.
Sorry for getting you excited, Ernie

How you been?? How are the hoofs?? I posted a while back trying to check up on you but you never responded. I figured you either took your own life cause you couldn'd ride for a while or you were in TT denial.
I honestly never thought about the ergonomics. You guys make a great point. I'll have to check into the aftermarket tanks.

The tall Wr seat.... hummm... my cost was ...
100$ seat cover and graphics
50$ foam, and about 50 for the seat... plus 2 hours time to custom fit seat foam and cover...180$ and i guess I'd let it go.
There is like 4 " of foam (2 seats worth) in the rear 8" of the seat (extra tall)
I'll try to post a pic of my bikes!

That is a lot ot foam. Are you 7' tall or is that seat for Herman Munster?????

My shops scanner is broke, so no pic, but...
I cut the rear 6-8" off of the stock foam, cut at a large angle, or slope. then I glued it to the base, and put the tall foam over it. had to trim for the best fit, but it looks great! no lumps or wrinkles anywhere. from the fender to the top of the seat is about 3- or 4" instead of 2".
I've got long arms and legs.. and this is softer on my bony a$$, and makes it easier to stand... and a lot easier to let the seat bounce off of me in the serious rough stuff.
I did this to my YZ seat as well! my YZ seat is almost a straight line from the tank to the back of the seat.
I'll admit now that i did them so no one can borrow.. or test out my bike! even if they can start it !!!

The ankles are much better. Air cast is off. They hurt when it's cold. I can't run but I have been mtn and road biking alot. I'm going to Gorman this Sunday and try out the dirtbike on some trails. MX track soon. Are you going to the Supercross this Sat?
Think about the ergonomics on the WR tank. Thats why so many people have dumped the WR tank. The YZ or aftermarket big tank that fits a YZ seat is a huge improvement.
Let me know if you will be at the SX and we can hook up.
