Iv'e read all the post's about the Guts seat foam and cover but I'd like to get a complete seat ready to go. SDG doesn't list one for the 07WR but they have it for the YZF. Wont fit I'm guessin. Any other companies make a complete tall seat?

I don't see why it shouldn't fit. They share the same rear fender mounting points, I would think the seat mounting holes would be the same.

Sorry guys, they are not the same. The seat pan is different in that the front of the seat has a "tongue" that mounts up like the old 400/426 seats, whereas the WR seat hooks into the two "tangs" along the two top rails of the subframe. Also, the taper up front is different. Notice how the WR seat doesn't quite cover the top of the YZ shrouds when using the IMS tank (which was originally designed for the YZ). The rear mounting bolts, however, are the same.

SXP is correct.
I have a SDG YZ seat in my garage as proof.
It will not work. I tried and failed.
Ended up getting the GUTS seat.
works great.

Do you need to get the tall soft for comfort or is the regular height soft O.K? I would rather not make things taller.

Thanks for the clarification SXP:thumbsup:

SDG needs to get on the ball and make a WR seat. The SDG seats I've ridden on were almost couch-like:ride:
