Hi. This is very interesting as I also struggle with a bad seat on my 09Tracer (2017), and have tried to find a good replacement seat (OE) as I understand that the comfort seat offered by Yamaha is not any better than the standard seat. Unfortunately I have not found any supplier yet that offer a solution for the 2017 model. Is your bike an older version?Took a little getting used to at first being wider for the backside but after riding for about 2 1/2 hours soon realise no arse ache compared to the 45min with the original.
How many miles you done Gruffalo? I found standard tracer seat painfull for first 600 mile but I find it excellent now so I would say just give it time.I'm interested as well, just bought a new tracer 900 and the only imediate thing I don't like is the saddle. As [MENTION=2872]Scrabblehobbit[/MENTION] said I've only seen bad reviews of the Yamaha comfort seat. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread, curious how you find the saddle after a full days ride.
Thanks for the tip Shaun, I haven't done a long ride yet, I will definately wait until after my first one before I make my mind up about the saddle.How many miles you done Gruffalo? I found standard tracer seat painfull for first 600 mile but I find it excellent now so I would say just give it time.
