Had a look at one at KTM clearwater... The only thing I liked was the fact that it had KTM embroiled on the seat... I was NOT convinced that it was more comfortable than the standard seat.. Doubt very much that it comes close the the seat concepts...Alas.. Not going to spend R5.5k on a seat right now... So...have to settle for the standard seat (I need to replace mine)

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.
Cheers

My seat is now buggered and the air-hawk just doesn't quite cut it with a broken seat pan. If I can't find an original in the next couple of weeks I want to import a Seat Concepts seat. Anyone want to join in and split the courier costs?

Do you have an indication of costs involved? I would definitely be interested if the price is not to hectic!

Well depends what you call hectic...
$300 x 13(exchange rate) + 15.4% + some customs fees (R300?) = R4500. Then theres the $160 shipping 2 seats so... $80 x 13 = 1040. Total should be around R5540 but is not set particularly if the exchange rate changes (although it is strengthening)

I am really, REALLY considering a Seat Concepts seat for my 701. But I suspect after getting the seat to you, and then from Joburg to me, I would not really save on the shipping...

I don't mind sending it on. Courier fees won't be nearly as much as bringing it in by yourself. You'll probably save R1000 depending how much it costs to send it to you.
