A few local WR riders took theirs to a local upholstery shop that also does bike seats. Fishers out of Eagle, Idaho. Obviously that won't help a Norway rider but maybe there is a local business in the upholstery biz who does the work.

I got the guts racing soft and tall seat. It is a little too soft after it has broken in, but I am getting to like it. They told me the medium would be the same as the stock seat, but I can't belive it would be that hard.

I have a 07 WR450 too and the seat is definitely abusive. My upholstry specialist bud is fastening my new Guts comfort seat together for me and I am looking forward to trying it out this weekend. The foam is noticably softer to the touch. I'll let you know how it turns out...

Hi Guys. Has anyone tried the guts racing comfort seat? I have a 09- wr 450 And the seat is really hard.

Also are there more manufacturers that make softer foam for these bikes?

I am the owner of WRP in Utah and have been working on a line of Gel Top seats for motorcross and enduro riding. We have been test riding now since last fall with great reuslts. The WR seat will be the first available and Honda will be next. We will offer the seat in a high and low density for different styles of riding. There is nothing on our site yet, you will see it is all snow products but stay tuned.

I would try the Guts medium/tall. I tried a tall/soft Guts seat on a Husaberg and it was like sitting on the couch. Felt like if I rode that bike much longer I would need a beer and a magazine while I sat. I've had the stock seat on my '08 for coming up on 3 years now and kind of like it.
