This kit includes the cover and foam only. It DOES NOT include the pan. You have to use the existing pan to install the foam and cover. Complete seats come mounted on an aftermarket pan.
The unique "Comfort" shape maintains a similar contour to stock at the front of the seat so the riderís legs are not spread farther apart, but tapers out towards the mid-point to distribute rider weight over a greater area.
Seat Concepts seats are constructed using a foam material that is a much higher quality than OEM seat foam. Their proprietary formula provides a more plush and active ride, while still offering the necessary amount of support. The standard foam density works well with a weight range of 165-265 lbs. If you are below or near the lower, or higher side of the weight range, you will need to contact Seat Concepts directly and they will help determine the correct density for you. MX1 Canada does not offer custom density foam options.
The covers are not waterproof at the seams. If you ride in an environment where water is an issue, wrap the foam with a thin plastic before installing the cover. A sheet of thin plastic is provided with all kits where applicable. Water will still be present at the seams after rain till the cover dries inside and out. All complete seats are supplied with plastic already installed.
- All Carbon Fiber: Black vinyl that has a carbon fiber pattern with a slick surface. This is the better choice for street and mellow off-road use. This is also the best option for riders who ride in jeans.
- Gripper Top/Carbon Fiber Sides: A very popular option, generally recommended for medium to heavy duty dual-sport and off-road use. The carbon fiber material offers good durability, and the asphalt gripper gives the rider a good amount of traction.
