I, myself, do not know of any other after market complete seat other than the IMS.
99 WR, all YZ mods, de-octopused, OEM YZ tank and seat, jetting by Clark, got forked by Pro Action.
For clarification: WE'LL be having a KICK ASS time in Moab!! Right Mitch?!!

Good hearing from you again! Hey I got new foam and a cover from Guts Racing, then had a shop install the stock plastic. On KerryT’s recommendation, I went to a small upholstery shop here in Denver. The guy took the seat in at 8:00 am and had it done by lunch for 20 bucks. I don’t have a full exchangeable stocker, but $20 is cheaper than you will find a replacement form.
I bought their tall/firm foam, but I swear it is MUCH more comfortable than the stock foam. I know they offer the stock height – soft. You might contact Baja Designs or A-Loop (all their seat products are Guts). They could get you a better read on the seats for you.
Hey – a few of us Denver folks are thinking about the Cloudcroft, NM enduro this October. Do you know anything about it? I heard it wasn’t too technical, but a ton of fun! Maybe, we could hook up there?

Well, the next one was my wife's XR250 (had to do it on short notice - no chance to have a shop do it)and a buddy of mine helped me out - we used his air stapler and had it done in an hour w/o any problems or wrinkles. I went and bought the same stapler from Harbor Freight & Salvage for $50 when we got back from Mexico. My point is - go buy the right tool and it will literally pay for itself. I'm actually looking forward to installing the Guts tall foam & cover on my WR.
I'll post the stapler PN in the next day or two.

They also have the standard height seat foam that is of a softer compound than stock, however being 6'5" tall the extra height of the tall was a welcome benefit. It was extremely easy to re-attach the foam to the stock plastic and put the stock cover back on.
Go for it. It's not that tough and you will be extremely happy with the results.
