    If your'e on the fence, 100% go for it.
    Does the Custom Seat have the same OEM seat pan? I'm wanting to know if it has the same molded parts to it that hold the screwdriver and L-hex wrenches along with the tabs that hold the rubber strap to snug the small black vinyl tool kit bag up against it. I think it's pretty cool that the bike came with some small useful tools. I even added a few more into the tool kit.

    Some answers...

    The pan is the same, so your toolkit clips to it just like the original seat.

    I think it is a few mm taller than the stock seat.

    I parked in the rain yesterday and the water didnt soak into it, so I would say it is water proof.

    It's cute that they tried to make the little tool holders under the seat, but my allen wrenches kept falling out so I stuck them inside the tool pouch. There's plenty of room in there, since they forgot to include a 10mm wrench in it! Seriously, Yamaha...

    I'd have to give myself a facepalm if the new seat added an inch in height, wouldn't I?
    i have the lust racing kit fitted much better but the side stand needs to be shortened have just ordered a adjustable one from the states

    Agreed. My plan is to put the black suede "Yammie custom" seat on the bike, then take my time to get the stock seat customised: re-shaped pan to remove the lips/edges that butt up near the tank, overall a bit narrower, better quality foam and finally (drumroll) re-covered in an aged tan/tobacco leather. Always wanted a silver tank/brown leather seat combo.

    I've not actually sure if it's waterproof. I'm pretty sure suede is waterproof no? I've been on the bike in rain and it doesn't seem to soak anything up when I get off.
    I think it's actually "ultra-suede", which is basically plastic, so for sure waterproof. No real leather / suede is fully waterproof, so seats are rarely made from this unless custom and then you have to take real care in poor weather. OK for California, but for most of us

    I have the suede seat and it got wet when it rained a little at the TT.
    Before I went I sprayed a few coats of suede water proofing product on it.
    It did get soaked, but dried really quickly.
    Light rain would be fine, but heavy / constant rained soaked in.

    That's really good to know Jim - is it just that it makes the bike stand a little too upright when parked stand-side against an upward incline, or is it that the whole thing feels unstable even on the flats? Also mind posting a link to the adj side stand you ordered? Would be v interested in an update when it arrives and gets fitted. Thanks mate.

    Thanks for the info, I would hate to ride on a wet seat.
    I also think it will wear out and look nasty after awhile.
    Corbin and Sargent will be my options in the near future.
    I have a Corbin custom seat on my '88 Hurricane, dual density foam and it's great for the long haul.

    Basically I LOVE It. Rode 2 solid days on it and feels better than stock, also looks very good with the silver seat cowl!

    I really don't mind the stock seat for now. I'm sure it will break in even further as I ride on it more. That Comfort Seat does look nice.
