Saddlemen Gel-Channel Track-CF Seat Yamaha FZ-09 2014-2015 Videos

Saddlemen Gel-Channel Track-CF Seat for Yamaha FZ-09

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 “Track” style series has hard-line looks that can’t be matched by any seat on the market. These seats are covered in contrasting colors that make it obvious that it’s a custom, and are specially constructed using a variety of materials that specifically match each bike’s colors and textures. Each “Track” seat is slightly bucketed in the rear section to contour to the rider’s body for better control during aggressive riding.

The CF models combine the outstanding features of the standard Track seat with a high-tech carbon fiber-look cover, center channel strip, and rear seat cover.

Features:

  • Saddlemen’s revolutionary Gel Channel (GC) seats offer high quality, durable construction, and styling that are as unique as they are functional.
  • The GC-seat design combines an interior comprising of progressive density foam and SaddleGel with a specialized cover that provides Sportbike riders a new level of comfort and control.
  • Gel Channel (GC)  technology (patent pending) seats incorporate a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to relieve seating pressure on the perineal area, increase blood flow, and thus keep the rider in the saddle longer.
  • The SaddleHyde cover holds up to hard use while providing a superb balance comfort and grip
  • Plated steel brackets are part of the plastic or fiberglass seat pan foundation specially engineered so your Saddlemen seat matches or exceeds the original seat’s fit.
  • Designed and built in the U.S.A.

much needed upgrade for FZ-09
the stock seat on the FZ-09 is absolute garbage. This seat is a much needed upgrade.

little stiff to start out but will break in after a few rides. having the slight 'pocket' (not sure what to call it) at the back of the rider position helps a ton with posture, and no front slope allowed me to stiffen the suspension and raise the rear a bit. put 100 miles on it over the weekend and am very pleased.

Rear area is much better, as the stock passenger spot was horrible. (GF is happy).

Function aside, it actually makes the bike look 10x better. No need to send you stock in to be done custom, this is all you need. Glad I waited and bought this.

Not worth the money
So after searching for a replacement seat for my FZ-09, I decided on the saddlemen, mainly because it had decent reviews on the forums and revzilla had it in stock. After receiving and using it for a couple hundred miles, I determined it still isn't a fix for my butt hurting. It does have a larger neutral/flat area compared to the stock seat, but the saddle is more narrow and puts pressure right on each side of my butt creating a different, yet still uncomfortable seat. Build quality seems decent, but overall I wish I didn't purchase it.

Very comfortable seat
This seat is very comfortable. I couldn't ride longer than an hour and a half on the stock seat. I can ride until the tank runs dry and still be comfortable.

Overall Great product
Very comfortable.
No sliding around.
Easy to control bike with your hips and hold on compared to stock.
Passenger comfort improved 10X

Mine installed easily with no adjustment.
Noticed that mine does creak like an old board when I first put my weight on it after it has been sitting for a while. Doesn't creak when I move around though. Seems very durable otherwise.

I did learn the hard way that gel seats retain heat really bad. Typical foam seats get hot in the sun but the initial sit down burn dissipates quickly. I had to pull over and buy a bag of ice to lay on my seat until it cooled off. Fairly certain I had burns on my A55 from that. So be sure to park in the shade or lay your coat over the seat while it is in the sun. The comfort outweighs this aspect for me but really if you have never owned a GEL seat before, learn from MY mistake.

Saddlemen brand has a great reputation of great quality, and very comfortable seats. Heard nothing but good things, also although I've personally never owned one made me want to get one after reading about this one, and now I can finally join the hype that everyone speaks of!

The seat description says it includes a rear seat cover. Does this mean it includes a seat cowl?
Chris on Apr 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, the Saddlemen seat for the FZ-09 does not come with a seat cowl. I think the description is a generic one.
What made you buy this seat compared to the Saddleman Sport seat?
Charles G on Mar 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This was the only one available when I made the purchase. That being said it's a great seat. On the stock seat I'd get uncomfortable after 45 minutes, I've done 3 hour rides on this thing with no problems whatsoever. It looks good and helps center your weight better so your not pushed up against the tank like on the stock seat.
Is there a helmet hook under the seat?

Does this seat include the seat-pan?
