I'm looking for comments/info on tall/soft seat foam for the WR450. I rode a 426 with the Factory Effex tall/soft seat and fell in love. Unfortunately, Factory Effex doesn't make a tall/soft for the WR450, only a tall/stock (whatever that is.) Let's face it, the WR450 stocker is like sitting on a brick. :) So, who makes tall/soft seat foam for the WR450's?

Like I've posted in the past, find a good upholsterer in town and have them add some foam and re attach cover. My buddy does it and it is coosh.

Is there enough room to do that with the stock cover or does he go with an aftermarket cover?

Guts Racing products (530-642-9118) has regular and soft foam options for standard and tall seats. I have the tall, soft option on my 03 YZ250F (same seat) and like it. A good cover and foam will run you about $130.

I rode a friends KTM that had the GUTS seat. WAY better. Felt like a narrow XR600 seat. Nice. I think I'm gonna get me one. :)

Tried to find the Guts website but no luck. Here's a link to a retailer.

I have used the guts seat foams and covers for all of my bikes. Experience has shown that the best option is the tall medium foam with regular seat cover. The foam will last longer and the seat cover will not give you monkey butt :D :). If you want a gripper seat I will sell you my guts cover for $40.00. One ride was all it took to remove.
