I bought this seat to make for a bit more comfortable ride, as their tag lines for this seat stated it was supposed to be a seat for everything from track days to 1000 mile rides. I actually bought this one instead of the "Tech" seat because of the water proof fabric this one offered where as the Tech was a fabric seat and living in Florida I didn't want to spend 50% of the time with a wet butt.
The seat itself is well made and looks fantastic, the pillion cover that came with it fit nice and snug, the seat itself bolted right into the OEM brackets with no issues at all using the original bolts. I loved the seat in every aspect but the comfort department. It is a very hard foam compound and extremely rigid. I kept hoping it would break in a little and become more comfy but it never did. Riding for more than 45 min to an hour left me sore and wanting nothing more than to simply get off the bike ASAP.
I have since replaced the seat with the OEM and have returned it to Dennis Kirk.
If you want a seat for track use I would highly recommend it but this is in no way, shape or form a seat you would want to sit on for everyday riding.
