I've got the basic all carbon version. So far after three commutes (26mi each way) I've found it to be very comfortable. No sliding forward. The carbon cover is slick with my Tourmaster over pants on, not really noticeable with jeans on. Easy to transition side to side but you don't slide forward. Very well designed.
I guess the best thing I can say is I don't notice it, no pain in the ass, not hanging me up, just comfortable riding.
It's better than the OEM seat for sure and better than the OEM comfort seat as well.
I have a Yamaha comfort seat for sale if anyone is interested. PM me.
I picked mine up from the upholstery shop today. Now keep in mind that i didn't actually find the stock unit uncomfortable,but really just an ugly seat, which is why i got a bit of mixed feelings about the seat tonight. When i picked it up from the shop,i was really impressed with the quality of the materials,top notch really,and the seat is beautiful also. Installed it on the bike and sat on it,and for sure long rides are going to be comfortable on this seat. So far so good,but i dont know if its only my unit,but i am really disappointed with the fit,there is a huge gap between the front edge of the seat and the tank,and now i find that the fit looks like the bike was built somewhere with questionable quality control. Anyone else has that kind of gap?
The pen is to show the kind of gap there is,and its not squeezed in there but rather loose.
Mine is the same, and I had Seat concepts install it. Not sure why it is like that. But the comfort is awesome, tons better than stock to me. It really doesn't bother me. I do wish it was a little closer tho.
I have yet to decide about getting one or not. I need to take some longer rides with the stock seat whenever the weather decides to improve enough. But for me, that gap is a deal breaker. You guys should bring it to Seat Concepts attention. It should fit up to the bike the same as the original.
It may be as simple as restapling the front after adding some material.

So,i took the time to work on my seat yesterday to fix the "gap issue" i had with it. Now keep in mind that i am not complaining about Seat Concepts,i understand that these are kits,and that different people working in different ways will end up with different results,and i also that kits sometimes might need a bit of customizing. Overall now i am really happy with the results. I removed the staples at the front edge of the seat and added a strip of foam and restapled it, i am now happy with the fit.
stealthunion: I am interested in the OEM bar if you still have them. How much shipped to Seattle, WA? Thanks!

exuptoy: Hi guys, newbie here from the uk. Just felt I had to register as I have today fitted the Leo to my 2018 10. Awesome sound on it but still a little loud with my Scorpion RP1-GP. Hope you guys like it.
