Have a seat concepts and the one day somebody wanted to buy the stock, and it seemed a bad idea to sell and not have a spare. Then I realised if my seat concepts ever broke I would immediately order another. So no I do not have one for sale but huge recommendation!!

If you do order one from the states please let me know as I would really appreciate sharing the courier costs.

I had modified my old 530 seat with great success at a place in Pretoria called 'Italian auto fitters' at R1200 so will be my other option.

Hi Goliath
I ordered about 10 minutes ago just before I noticed your post. If you contact me I can try getting back to them about changing the order.

Hi Fergus
I'm hoping to get my seat this week. Its been sitting with customs for almost 2 weeks.
I bought from SoloMotoParts.com
Service was good and I'll let you know what the final costs are once I've paid my import duties.
Cheers Thumper

Bought mine direct from Australia in 2011.  Before they had a concern in the US.  In those days, you could order only foam and the cover, you had to cover the original pan yourself.  I have the 2 tone suede version.

Got my seat today.
Very impressed with the quality.
Its a tighter on the bike due to some larger rubbers under the seal but a good slap on the rear and she clicks in.
I bought when the dollar was a bit stronger and it came to about R5800 including shipping and import duties.
Haven't had a chance to test her out but will give her a try on the weekend.

I'm embarrassed to say that due to the weather and other commitments I haven't taken her out on a long ride.
I can say that the seat is a lot more comfortable even on short rides.

I tried an Airhawk out while sitting on the bike in the garage and I must say it feels a serious amount better. It is also vastly cheap than any after market seat. I wonder how they compare in comfort long distance with the seat concepts seat. At least you get a better seat pan that won't break as soon as you go over a bump.

I've been on a couple of rides with the new seat and I'm very happy with the seat.
Much more comfortable than the original and no more sliding around.

They did not when I had mine made in 2011.  The tunnel was too narrow.  But I cannot vouch for the newer, off the shelf seats.

The Power parts seat from KTM is cheaper than the Seat Concepts one and I'm told its slightly more comfortable than the original.

Not exactly sure that power parts seat really can compare to the seat concept seat. I have however  just got myself a airhawk which really seems to be working well, but time will tell when I get back from 4000km in the saddle in January.

I doubt the power parts seat is as comfy as my seats concept but its a cheaper option if you need a new seat.
Must admit I haven't tried the power parts seat and my comment is only what I've heard.
That's why I went for the seats concepts but they are pricy and the postage and taxes are a killer.
