2018 seat recommendations

So I’ve got a new 300rr. I’ve ridden it quiet a bit. Longer rides the factory seat is rubbing my butt and the inside of my legs raw. I know I’m not supposed to be sitting much, but I’m a lazy rider I suppose. Haha 😉 I was looking at the seat concepts seats, more specifically the one that lowers the seat height 1 inch. Anyone have one? I know it’s softer, but does it rub you raw like the oem seat?

I've had one for three years, way more comfortable and no doesn't rub my legs raw.

You got the lower height seat?

I went with a guts racing tall but soft seat foam and new cover. Haven't been rubbed raw.

I do, Seat Concepts low. I love it, and the wife hasn't complained about it. Great, quality product.

Yes

I have the seat concepts and the guts racing soft foam (stock height) seats.  For riding off-road I only use the guts racing seat...the seat concepts is too wide, IMO, if you move around a lot on the bike.

Sweet, thanks for the feedback guys. 

What kind of cover you guys got with the guts foam?

got the guts cover, ribbed, in black, with the notches on it too. all black, I don't like flashy seats because they just get filthy. Used a air powered staple gun courtesy of NW_drz.

I have the guts stock height soft foam.  I'm going to switch to something else because my butt sinks through to the plastic if I am not seated in the center of the seat.  I weigh 190lbs for reference.

Throw some A+D ointment on before and after the ride. Works like a dream. And get that butt off the seat more!
I like seat concepts low. I am short and ride several hours for 2 consecutive days.

Try a mountain bike chamois short and chamois cream.  This has improved every motorcycle seat for every motorcycle I have ever owned.

I'm running Guts(or whatever Beta sells) soft foam at the stock height with Motoseat covers on both my bikes. A lot softer and much better grip when I do sit down...never had a problem with chaffage though, most of the time I'm standing.Motoseat.jpg.5f61593be22409ac3bad7b1f7af3654e.jpg

Another thing to consider is Moto Skiveez.

Try some of this.
