Tall Seat?

Postby IDRIDR » 03:37 pm Jan 10 2015

I'm curious to hear from riders with tall seats. I installed a Guts Racing tall seat with medium density foam on the KLX250 and love it. I'm considering one for the KDX. Who has one, what brand, and what are your opinions?

Thanks!

Guts tall medium density, 6'2 34" inseam. Works perfect on the KDX for us.

Thanks. I'd not heard of Ceet. A much better price compared to Guts as Ceet has a combo seat and foam for $89.

Well, the KDX certainly isn't nearly as bad as the KLX. On the trail, that darned KLX seat would suck me right down with the boys squishing against the tank and I would be continually pushing back. I absolutely hated it. I'll give the KDX a few months of riding and see where it goes.

I'm 6'5" and have grown accustomed to it. Wasn't a fan of the banana seat at first, but I kind of like it now as I mostly ride sitting except at high speed in bumpy stuff or in slow technical stuff.
