I have been rideing my old 04 crf the last few outings.My o6yz450 was sitting awhile with a flat and a torched rear tire that I was to lazy to change. Anyway when I got back on the yz it felt a little awkward. To me it feels like your on top of the bike on the honda and on the Yz your kind of in the bike.Should I get a taller seat? I am 6' 2"

I'm 6'4". I've added foam on every bike I've owned. I like soft foam so I removed my seat and took it down to the local trim shop and had them add an inch of some household-memory foam stuff.

I can now sit on my ass for hours without it hurting. :thumbsup:

Thanks nice bike. How much taller is the seat from stock? Does Gutz or one industries sell the complete seat so I can just bolt it on? The last time I did a seat cover it came out looking like one of those japanese bulldogs.Plus I want to keep the origanal seat.I like your all black one this way when I get the urge to by a new bike I can just put the yellow plastic on it and while i'm at it i'll buy some hair dye for the for the ol lady!
