My bro-in-law says his butt still hurts from a ride we did 3 weeks ago. It was his first ride on his '05 WR450f.

Any chance there is a cushy gel seat, or an oversized foam seat that would shut his whining up about a sore butt?

Links would be nice. Thanks... Stores in utah/idaho for local pickup? or online stores to order and ship, whatever you find.

Yes there are comfortable seats out there. Guts racing is one of the favorites around here, but you would know that if you tried a search. There are literally hundreds of threads out there on this exact subject. I am not trying to be an a$$, but it is obvious that you didn't even try before posting this. Sorry.

I don't know what got into me, I am not usually the "Search Nazi" but for some reason I felt the need to tell him to search. I have no interest in being a mod, nor do I have the time it would take. Sorry, I will crawl back into my hole and just answer questions. Have a good one.:applause:

Yeah, I already admitted that. Even apologized for it I think. In my defense though, I didn't just tell him to search, I also answered his question. I admit the crankiness could have easily been omitted.

Hope you enjoy your seat, I personally think it was one of the best investments I made on my bike.

I noticed the tall/soft Guts seat reference, and at risk of sounding like the newbee that I am, is it actually taller than stock? I ask because I'm a short little bugger who would like a softer seat that is not taller.

Go to their site (Gutsracing), they have factory height with soft, medium, or hard foam available. You can but just the foam or a whole new seat.
