Moose Racing Adventure Seat for Suzuki V-Strom DL650/DL1000
After several pavement rides and one 3 day off pavement ride/camping trip I can say that I really like this seat.
Install - installing the seat is NOT as easy as the stock seat. It takes some patience and precise placement for the seat to securely slide into place. The bottom prongs are short and shallow. Meaning you have to press down in the seat pan (hard) as you slide the seat forward to get the prongs under the saddle bar. Additionally you have to mind the lower parts of the seat and spread them open to slide over the plastic. So although you may hear and feel the rear lock click, pull up on the front of the seat to ensure the prongs are under the bar.
Although the seat does not slide on as easy as the stock seat, the comfort more than makes up for all of it! With the v-strom stock seat, my rump only lasted 1.5hrs before I would get uncomfortable. I have done 400+ mile pavement mountain rides and 3 day off pavement rides and never once did I get a hot spot or become uncomfortable with this seat.
This seat does sit a bit higher than the stock seat, prob 2 inches or so. With the stock seat (while riding) I could not dangle my legs as the entire foot would lay flat with bent knees. This Moose Racing seat, I can ride down the highway and dangle my legs without touching (I do have to keep my feet flat though - and not dangle feet).
The seat is very comfy and I recommend!
