    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.

    I have one instore in front of me and it looks nice, but like yourself I find the stock seat perfectly comfortable. I like that I can move back and forth on it if I need to. Keen for other people's thoughts..

    I found the stock seat a bit uncomfortable. I sit quite forward. It seemed to push me forward and the sides dug into my thighs after an hour or two. I got the custom seat and find it a little more padded than stock. It still digs into my thighs but not as much.

    I have just adjusted my bars and hence riding position slightly so time will tell how this affects comfort.

    I've got it, I think it's a must have, and seriously, seriously adds to the bikes looks. (As in it should be standard...)

    If your'e on the fence, 100% go for it.

    I'd also really like to know. I've ordered the Lust Racing suspension links to bring the bike down an inch and am about to order the custom seat.
    I'd have to give myself a facepalm if the new seat added an inch in height, wouldn't I?

    I'll unpack one from a box tomorrow and try to get a picture with it "against" a demo bike. I'm now curious myself.

    With the naked eye, It's pretty much identical in shape and size, it may be a few MM here or there if actually measured but nothing noticeable if there is.

    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.

    And it's shame that they don't offer it in brown color which suits great to blue/grey XSR.
