I use my 426 in more of an enduro style,riding mostly in the mountains and desert. The only complaint I have is the overly firm seat for my riding style.Does anyone know where I can buy an XR style seat for my 426.

I know that the foam seems too firm but if you go softer, you will "bottom out" the foam.
You should check for a taller seat for more cushion, something from Ceet or thoses others companies.
You can alway try riding more, you will toughten(sp?) your rear end.
Good luck

I had the CEET Tall Foam for my KX and it helped a lot over the firm stock foam. If you are a vertically challanged rider then it might not be a option but would consider it.
