I concur with the many people who complain that the OEM seat on the 900 is uncomfortable after about 20 miles. What are some good after market alternatives that won't break the bank?
Depends, what bank are we talking about, CHASE, The local bank down the street, or your check book.
Won't break CHASE.
Russel DayLong I have information from reputable members that this is the best seat available. Custom made from a mold, yup you know of what. Very pricey but the best I have heard of.
Won't Break Local Bank
Mustang Wide Tourer, or many other models.
Corbin many models
Many people swear by both of these Brands, I have a mustang and love it.
Won't break your check book.
Saddleman Gel Pad Seats, Same seat that Kawa sells with stitching. Decently priced. Gel pad works way better than stock seat and will drop you into the bike about 2 inches. I get to the I have to get off stage, after about an hour and a half with this one.
AirHawk Seat Pad, inflatable cushion, people swear by them.
I also use a sheepskin as a cover on my seat, comfy and keeps me away from the seat, It gets hot down here.
Also some people use the seat back beads many cab drivers use.
There are many others those are the ones I can think of now.
Others will fill in I am sure.
Hope this helps.
