seat for a tall guy

10 posts in this topic

hey,

My dad is 6'5" and the stock seat on his 2006 wr450 is too firm for his taste

he's looking at getting a guts seat.

which should he get?

tall foam but what density?

He weighs about 220

i searched the forums but could find much info.

thanks

p.s. he rides dual sport most of the time so there alot of sitting involved

I have been using the tall soft for years and like it but I think if I dual sported a lot I might go with the medium density. I would also recommend staying away from their "hardcore gripper" cover unless they tell you in person that they have started using a new material... it rips and wears WAY to fast. I have had their "competition" cover on for a couple years now and it is an awesome cover.:moon:

They also have a "comfort style" seat now that looks like it's designed for DS'ing... don't know if it comes in a TALL application though. Check it out, and if you end up going with it report back:ride:

My guess would be hard...

The thing with DS'ing is that you want a little wider saddle and not too soft. Too soft and you end up with a wedgie, if I DS very far at all I stand up alot and will continually shift contact point from one butt cheek to the other right from the start... I do not suggest tall soft for DS'ing.

My buddy has that comfort seat on his 525exc and he dual sports alot and claims to really like it. I just don't know if it comes in a "tall" and your Dad definitely needs the tall.

I use the tall/hard seat on my YZ. I had the medium but it felt too soft that's why i changed to hard. I'm 6.5 too.

Tall hard here also, DS means sitting alot and you will be feeling the seat pan real soon with the soft.

I am 6'3" and use the Guts tall firm and find the seat breaks in and is very comfortable for long DS rides, I have had this seat since 2004 and its great.

That plus the Thumperracing 1.5" bar risers make standing up so much better, less energy taxing, for the stand up position.

Here is the Guts tall soft with flamer cover. This cover seemed to be the least abrasive for avoiding monkey butt. It is not as strong as the competition cover. I prefer soft foam and I weigh 220 pounds.
