Does anybody know if there are any companies or shops that make an aftermarket seat for the YZF450?
I just bought a 2011 model and the previous owner changed the stock seat for an acerbis x-seat and the thing is solid! Either that or does anyone want to swap stock for x-seat??

Thanks

Mike.

I'm having a similar issue with finding a complete aftermarket seat. I posted something the other day regarding looking for a step seat and the sdg website doesn't show anything after 09. One of the replies suggested contacting sdg directly and said the website wasn't up to date..... I haven't made the call yet, but that's my plan. Otherwise I'll go with guts or something similar and just buy a cover and build it myself. The guts foam is really nice, even in their standard height. It's not too soft or too hard, just right.

I have a friend that has an apolstry business, he hooks me up on what ever type of seat set up we want, step, ripple, taller, he can raise the seat height almost 2 inchs with a new stock seat cover.

SDG's website doesnt show anything for any brand bike after 09. Call em and give them a &%$#@!. When I had my custom seat made a year ago they said the website was being updated. Great service though best I've ever gotten from a moto vendor.
