Thanks for the tip. Spoke to Jerry at SDG. He said their new YZ400/426 seat will weigh 1.5 lbs less than stock. They are using a water-proof superlight closed-cell foam currently used in the medical industry.
Per Jerry, the seat firmness will be similar to the stock YZF'er.
The YZF seat won't be available until December/January but worth the wait if you're interested in shaving 1.5 lbs for $90!

They get $85.00 for their mountain bike seats, so I was a little suprised that they are claiming about the same for a motorcycle seat that would require way more materials. Then I remembered the mountain bike seats have titanium rails.......
$90.00 is a very good price for a complete seat if you consider the $125.00 for the base, $50.00 for the foam, and $50.00 for the cover.
I think they will sell alot of these!!!
