I'm a little late to this party but I can say I've had a Fisher saddlebags dual sport seat on my '11 for two years now and I won't ever ride another dirt bike without one. Mine is also an inch taller as well as added width.

HahahabaJajhaja! Looks like its designed to sit way back.

I shave my seats down as im short and barely bave any padding. I ride 30-60 miles usually, no butt problems. But I also stand 75%

Not sure what's funny? Not everybody stands all the time. I know some very fast guys who sit as much as they stand. I have read nothing but good things about the Fisher seats.

Wasn't laughing about sitting, I just prefer standing. Settle down Coop...

Haha I'm not excited. I just wasn't sure what you were laughing at. Lots of dual sport guys use those wide seats so I guess I am used to looking at them and it looked normal to me .

There is another company Seat Concepts that does something similar. It doesn't look as high of quality, but is much cheaper and looks good enough. My wife sits a lot and I am going to get her one this winter.

I have used Seat Concepts before on my last WR250R dual sport. The problem is they will only make one for the bikes listed. They do not make custom seats. I tried to get one for my wife's DR200 and they said nope. I have heard if you donate your seat and foam they will, but they told me no.
