Seat Foam /cover and seat step Combo

I ordered this great combo deal from Motostore for $50 plus shipping .Its a Ebay  outfit .

 Came with a Tall firm seat foam ,Seat step and seat cover .

 This was my first replacement I've done and ran into a little problem with the seat cover towards the rear . Did the best I  could on the corners  and ended up with a crease on each side .
 Before installing the seat step I put the foam and the seat base ,took the step with me and sat on my bike . I sat in my natural position in attack mode ,placed the step against my rear in that position ,made my marks and that's where I installed it . It kind of seems further back then other steps I see on other bikes but oh well .
 All in all it feels great  but have yet to take it for a ride . definitely feel I got my money's worth .

Took it for a ride and the seat step had to go .  otherwise feels great .

 



 

Just got back from a Ride and the tall seat changes everything . At first I felt a little off on the turns but that quickly went away and love the space I have when sitting now.

 Conserved a lot of energy when switching from sit and stand . Rode harder ,longer and the seat felt great .  I do miss the way the X-seat feels with turns  and I did raise my handlebars a little more which works out great . When I stand I have the right leverage and when I'm sitting the handlebars don't feel to high . :thumbsup:

 This bike is getting better with age .
 I also decided to run the rich coupler today and like how it preforms  . I tried the Lean coupler too but  too much popping on deceleration .

 I'm also tinkering with the sag still . I purposely ran increased the race sag  to achieve a negative feeling but I could not really find it  .when decreasing the race sag I found when I went to far that direction . So I increased the race sag till It felt great . Working from one side of the spectrum .

What sag settings are you currently running? I'm running 110mm and it has worked really well.

 Interesting that's about where I'm at as well  . sitting race sag I'm at 110mm and standing I'm at 106 mm . Averaging 108mm
