I absolutely agree Bob. They stick a 2 x 4 hard seat on the bike with very little thought and then offer up a "comfort seat".....No Thanks, I'll spend that money somewhere else.....and it's going to be soon, like maybe next week. We've got a local guy that re-did the seat on the DorsoDuro that I use to have and did a great job. High quality foam, reshaped it, and put a new cover over the final product......all for under $200 in 2012.Yamaha is already delighted to sell you a new seat for your 09. But I don't like to reward bad behavior, if I need to do something about the seat my $ won't go to Yamaha.
I haven't tried it, look around the forum for reports of it. Here are some threads to try:Is the yamaha comfort seat a big upgrade over the stock seat??
Not anytime soon but is already the law in Europe.I heard ABS is going to be the law in the US. Does anybody know if that is right? Sorry for my laziness, I could google it, but I am just conversing, lol!
That is funny! I had a 1994 XR650L, they have a 2014 650L, they are the same!If they follow the dual-sport upgrade calendar (Like my KLR 650 or XR650L), then the next update should be about 2039. PS for seats I am waiting on Sargent. Always super comfy and look great. Any news on their offering?
