I need to replace the stock seat
I'm riding a '09 650 Silverado. I find the OEM seat becomes very uncomfortable after only a few miles. I'm looking for some suggestions on an aftermarket replacement. All opinions are welcome...thanksSmile

@captram1 I *believe* there is some seat discussion in this thread: http://www.vstarforum.com/Yamaha-V-Star-Mods-Thread

My answer has been, unfortunately, a fat butt. But even that gets old. Need to get back into the gym. But thanks for the idea on the gel pad. Seems to be pretty inexpensive.

Check Amazon.com or even eBay can have some brand new stuff at decent deals. Failing that try google catalogs or google shopping or whatever it is. You can find the cheapest price that includes shipping, too.

I will second the Amazon. My friend who has a 950 just got one and he says it is much better. I can't remember how much he paid, but it was reasonable.

Bead rider, air-hawk, gel pads, cushions, sheep skins etc...add-ons

a great day to ride, mean city cycles...
re-work you stock seat to fit you, move forward, move back, whatever you want.

Mustang seats, ultimate seat, corbin seat, saddleman seat, russell day long etc,
aftermarket seats

Never tried one but Pacific Coast Star has a seat rework, exchange for a very reasonable price.
