    Uncomfortable MT0-9 Standard Seat.

    Has anyone found a solution to the uncomfortable standard MT0-9 seat (2015 model), I get bum ache after only 50 miles max.

    I have spoken to my Yamaha dealer and they agree the comfort seat sold by Yamaha is no better than the standard seat and is a waste of over 200.

    I've tried a gel cover which wasn't particularly good and now use an Airhawk for long runs which whilst not perfect helps quite a lot...

    I got a comfort seat. It looks better than the standard "plank of wood" and there may be a bit of placebo that makes you feel better. Also i got the standard seat in the top of my wardrobe as a back up. So i don't feel bad. I paid about $250 aus for the comfort seat

    Also I do can do about 200 km on my comfort seat in one ride with no problems. I am 62 y.o. with recent open back surgery due to compressed disc pressing on sciatic nerve and limp stopping me changing gears. You just need to go thru the pain barrier.

    I bought a spare seat from eBay a while ago, planning on getting it reshaped and filled​ with memory foam. The problem I get is my jeans strangling my nuts as I get sqaushed against the tank.

    Shad seat from Omnia racing Italy. Expensive but far better than stock.

    I'd suggest trying the breakers, and see if you can get a spare standard seat. Then send it off to Tony Archer.

    Ironically, every bike I've had has given me arse ache, but not the Tracer.

    V8legend.

    Who is Tony Archer and have you had a seat recovered by him as you are recommending him, if you have was the finished article any more comfortable than the standard seat ?

    Have to agree.. the Shad seat is far better, can ride all day, worth the cash and you can also get it heated... I suffered for 2 1/2 years on the old plank of yamaha... only bought it cos I got at a really great price on a deal with SW luggage... best thing i did..

    TBH ... if my Tail Pack is on then i feel pushed forward... so I stick with panniers so i can still move about..

    Also, if you like the new 2017 seat, then that fits previous 09's

    Hope that helps!

    I bought the street rally seat from yamaha dealer 106 and I think it's a massive improvement over the standard seat
