Suzuki sells upgraded seats for most of their bikes. I've owned a couple of these, they're not bad and relatively inexpensive. Check on the Suzuki Accessories page. I believe these seats are made by Travelcade. I also believe in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and the Basic Goodness of Mankind, so you may take my beliefs as you will.
Modify your seat for extra comfort. These pictures are of a Suzuki DL650 seat. The basic instructions will work on any bike which has a flat seat (no sculpting), and fairly dense foam. You can repeat this process for your passenger seat, also. This is not a case where more is better - the tempur foam is non-supportave in this thickness, it's to relieve pressure. A seat made only of tempur foam needs to be at least 3" thick.
What we're going to do is cut out a rectangular section of foam away and replace it with high-density hospital quality tempurfoam. Tempur foam, also called memory foam, was invented by NASA to improve comfort during liftoff and for fighter pilots. The tempur foam will slowly mold itself to your shape, forming a perfect custom fit. After you get off the seat, in 2-4 minutes the foam will come back to its original shape. The result is that the pressure is spread very evenly, with no pressure points on your hip bones. If you have trouble finding suitable foam, we sell pieces. You can click to buy them at the end of this page.
You can follow the instructions below, or bring the instructions and tempur foam to a local auto upholstery shop, where you should have no trouble getting the work done for you for $25 - $40. The entire job takes about 1/2 hour.
We stock tempur foam pieces 6" x 4" x 1" in firm and extra-firm. We recommend extra firm if you weigh over 155 poumds, 70 kilos. You can get two pieces if you would also like to do your passenger seat.
