I recently bought the flat seat of yamaha for xsr700 (scrambler type), for two reasons.
1) I think the standard seat is not so comfortable for the passenger (my girlfriend complained that on longer trips she feels tired and achy)
2) The look :grin2: the scrambler look seat from Yamaha looks very nice on the bike

For those who have questioned what is the differences between the two seats .... I put some photos
As you can see on the last photo, the chassi is exactly the same on the two seats. The main difference are the shape of the seat and the coating.(I found the seat not slippery such as the standard).
Because the seat is flat, it ends up earning a little extra space for the passenger

Complete explanation, thanks! I think it would be nice to see how your yellow rocket looks like with the new flat seat ;)

And what does your girlfriend say about the new seat? Is it more comfortable now?

I have the same issue with my girlfriend and the stock seat... ;-)

Ahahah my gf said that the stock seat is really comfortable and she enjoys it xD.. Maybe she's just used to our friends' bikes that are way more uncomfortable (like the ducati monster or the ktm duke)! Thanks 4 the foto sergio I really like how the flat seat looks

And I thought my girlfriend was the only one complaining!
Is it worth the cost though? 220e are a bit much, with that kind of money I think I could get a custom leather one!

Usually I use a Spanish Yamaha dealer to buy my accessories for my xsr700, they are great. I think they ship to any place.
I do not know if I'll be committing any offense to the rules of the xsr700forum by indicating the name of the company ...

Try to talk to them and see the final price with shipping costs....

I purchased the flat seat as I like the look of it. However I am thinking of going back to the stock seat as I find that much more comfortable

Hello.
I bought the flat seat with the bike.
Because of the look of it.
I've done 500km on the stock. And for sure, the stock is higher and a lot more confortable!!!
But I live in Paris... Look is very important for me! ;)
Now the bike has 1300km, still on the flat one!
Regards.
sven.

ciao Sergio,
dici che hai pagato la sella 148€ su MachadoRacing ma io ho guardato e l'ho vista scontata a 179.99. Sai se era un'offerta speciale?
grazie

Hi Sergio,
you say you paid € 148 on MachadoRacing but I watched and I saw it at 179.99. Do you know if it was a special offer?
thank you

Have you guys found the flat seat softer to sit on than the standard one? I just can't ride the std and looking for options.

Cheers

STD seat vs flat seat

So.. did anyone answer the question as to whether the flat seat is physically lower than the standard seat?
Thanks- I’d really like to know if a flat seat will give me a lower stance on the bike if I fit one?
Many thanks.

x2. Anyone able to answer this? Does the flat seat improve the amount of foot you can get on the ground, either through height or foam density enabling it to squash more?
