Guts Seat - wrong size

13 posts in this topic

Just picked up the Guts Seat - tall medium for my 2005 WR450. When I slide the foam over the plastic seat it does not go all the way to the end - approx. 1.5-2 inches from the end of the seat. The stock foam goes all the way to the end.

Anyone experience this? Trying to determine if I need to send it back or if this is how it is supposed to fit. Seams like it isn't sized correctly.

thanks

I traded foam with my bud, he has a '05 with guts foam, my '06 was stock, I had the same problem and was a little worried but after stretching the cover, it seemed to pull the foam back some and it fit ok, good mod, it took some getting used to but way better tnan stock

Called Guts today - they made a mistake and sent me a seat for a 2007 WR - they are sending me a new one for my 05. I will let you guys know what the fit it like.

2006 tall, soft guts.

Hey MotoGoalie,

I like your Guts seat. I'm looking for a softer and thicker seat for my YZ 250 2-stroke. I only ride woods and need something that will allow me to do 50 miles in the woods. The stock seat is like an ironing board. Do you think a tall soft Guts seat will work for me? Does the tall seat have more foam than the standard?

Yes, it has alot more especially up towards the tank more, it's almost straight across the top compared to the dish version the stock one looks like, but you need to be tall enough to feel comfortable at that height also.

yes, that's why i bought it. Tall soft, its not as squooshy as that XR but its comfortable now. It will allow you to do 50 miles without monkey butt.

it has more foam than the standard.

Look for Yamaha Seat Rant thread.

I got my tall 'medium soft' seat foam today, and a gripper cover. Got the foam Shoe-Goo'd to the seat base, and put the seat cover on.

My Stanley electric staple gun won't drive the staples into the seat base properly, and I don't want to feck up my $45 seat cover. :thumbsup:

What kind of staples & staple gun are you guys using to secure the seat cover? I'm kinda frustrated right now...any tips/tricks appreciated.

Thanks!
