Saddlemen Gel-Channel Tech Seat Yamaha FZ-09

Yamaha has unleashed a seriously fun “naked” Sportbike that features a free-revving 850cc  triple-cylinder engine slid into a slim and nimble chassis. When you have this much fun available to a rider you better be sure to have accessories that are well suited to the task. Once again, Saddlemen has found a way to make a great bike even better with seats specifically engineered for the FZ09.

The Gel Channel line of seats for sport bikes are designed specifically for the rider that needs a seat that can do everything—canyon carving, track days, or commuting. Features Saddlemen’s Gel Channel (GC) technology (patent pending) that incorporates a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to relieve seating pressure on the perineal area, increase blood flow, and keep the rider in the saddle longer. Saddlemen sport bike seats offer high quality, light weight construction and styling that’s second-to-none.

The “Tech” style series incorporates high-quality, flexible fabric top covers that breathe well and are textured to allow the body to move on the seat for aggressive maneuvering. Just under the top cover is a layer of memory foam that contours to the shape of the rider’s body with additional memory foam in areas strategically positioned for maximum comfort.

Many Gel Channel solo seats come with a matching pillion cover for a unified look.

  • The best looking, most unique custom seat you can buy, with lines and materials designed to match specific bikes
  • Performance oriented—the seats match the characteristics of the bikes they’re made for
  • More comfortable than any stock seat on the market
  • Designed specifically for the rider that needs a seat that can do everything—canyon carving, track days, or commuting
  • Feature Gel Channel technology (patent pending) that incorporates a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to relieve pressure on the perineal area for all-day riding comfort
  • Special seat cover materials allow for easy movement when riding aggressively
  • Matching pillion cover included
  • High-quality, flexible fabric top cover breathes well and its texture allows body to move on the seat for aggressive maneuvering
  • Just under the top-cover is a layer of memory foam that contours to the shape of the rider’s body with additional memory foam in areas strategically positioned for maximum comfort
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Note:  Some seats may require stock hardware to be re-used for proper installation.

Massive improvement over the stock seat Every FZ-09 rider I have met has all said the same thing about the seat in that it's way to stiff and very uncomfortable after 30 minutes of riding on it. The saddlemen seat is a massive improvements to where I can go on 3 or more hours on this seat without any major discomfort. The good Easy to install - Unlock the seat from below, pull off the old one and slide this in Comfort - Very comfortable and great for long distance The bad The foam - If the bike gets rained on, it will soak up some water. It's slippery - The material is rather slick, so certain pants material will make it a challenge to stay in place without sliding down towards the tank. That being said, its not that easy to move from side to side for aggressive leaning, so if you want a bike for a lot of aggressive maneuvering then go for the other style. Overall, it's a great addition for my bike and really added a lot of enjoyment to it. If you don't like the stock seat, have a lot of issues after riding for a bit, then this is well worth the money.

Avoid, instead look for the Sport or Track seat Installation a breeze, seat really comfortable. My main gripe is that the main seat material is neoprene, and the raised bumps are regular foam. This has two consequences: 1) the bumps soak water, so be prepared to have your backside wet if you washed the bike and/or rained before you ride. 2)The neoprene in my seat has faded to a purplish-gray color, under regular exposure to sunlight. Bike is parked in a open air shed, and one side is lighter than the other (expected since one side gets more sun). The seat looks like 10 years old when it basically around 8 months old. For $400, avoid and go to the other designs that seem to have better materials April 13, 2015
NO MORE SPANKINGS FOR ME! Fz-09 Replaces the boomstick Yamaha Engineers presented Fz-09 owners with a lush, soft and ergonomic saddle. It raises the seat height about half an inch. (Think about all that padding) Clips on just like the stock saddle.This seat is well worth the investment. March 2, 2015
Best addition to My FZ09 to date. Anyone who has ridden a stock FZ 09 knows the factory seat is the worst. The Yamaha engineer's should be ashamed of putting such a terrible seat on an otherwise great bike. The Saddleman tech seat is super comfortable on short and long trips. January 19, 2015
Seat for long miles Just received my Gel-tech a few days ago. Install is as simple as removing the factory seat and putting this one on. I can tell even in a few short miles that this seat corrects my three main complaints with the factory seat. It removes the forward slope towards the tank. It has a more gentle rounded off edge on the sides, as opposed to the sharp angular factory sides. The factory sides would start to be bothersome after an hour on the bike, but the Saddlemen should reduce that discomfort by margins. Lastly it is much more comfortable to sit on even out of the box as opposed to the factory plank. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to do high mile days on their FZ-09 December 10, 2014
Comfy Seat I was getting very tired after just thirty miles with the factory seat but this Saddlemen seat keeps me comfy for lots more miles. November 17, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Stevan O: Bought this seat on the recommendation from Saddlemen. I told them that I ride mostly in the summer in the California Central Valley. This seat accomplishes everything they said it it would! My first ride with it installed was a 150 mile ride up Highway 49 in the Sierra foothills. Ambient temp. was 103 degrees. I did not experience any 'hot spots' or numbness the entire time. What a great upgrade for my FZ-09!!! Sep 9, 2014
Mont P: Looks comfortable and sleek Sep 3, 2014
Charles G asked: How is this seat for a passenger? I am trying to figure out which Saddleman seat to get, this, the Sport, or Track seat? Mar 13, 2015

Stevan O: Charles,
I haven't found anybody that wants to ride on the back of my FZ09 but I can tell you that there is a fair amount of comfortable padding in the passenger area. My wife sat on it once and said that it was as comfortable as her seat on my Harley.
Hope this helps.
