Has anyone on here tried the yamaha comfort seat? Just wanted to hear how it compared to the stock seat. For me the stock one doesn't have enough padding.

i have the comfort seat. i don't believe it has any more padding than the stock seat, as they both have the same shape and profile, but the foam on the comfort seat feels slightly firmer in the right places. i can tolerate it longer than the stock one, but it's not an all-day seat if that's what you're looking for.

if you don't like the shape or slope of the stock seat, you won't like the comfort seat.

I have the stock seat, the comfort seat and the seat concepts seat.

The seat concepts is more comfortable than the comfort seat and much more comfortable than the stock seat.

The main improvement I noted between the stock seat and the comfort seat is that the comfort seat does not make my balls hurt after 30-40 minutes of riding and eventually go numb and then ache for a long time after getting off the bike.

Everyone's butt is different so your experience may vary.

I like the shape of the stock seat. Just needs more padding or firmer. Maybe I weight to much (205lb) but I feel like I am sitting on the metal frame within a 20-30min ride.

i'm 160ish so i don't know how the comfort seat would be for you.

if you do decide to give it a try, it's $300 retail but i got mine for about $220 shipped from onlinecycleparts.com. type in the part number 1RC-F47C0-V0-00 into their search box and it'll come up.

I'm assuming since the is technically the fz09.org forums he thought you were talking about the fz09. I know I did until I saw this post and checked where I was haha!
oops, i thought it was for the 09 too.

yamaha's accessories page doesn't list a comfort seat for the 07 though...

Just thought I would update this. Anyways I put on the seat and have ridden 1400 miles on it. It definitely is more comfortable to me then the stock one but still not an all day ride.
