Yes Tommy, firmer foam in Gen 2 seats and all brands of aftermarket seats even fit all years of KLR650's.

Only problem with '08- '10 seats is the heat welded seam between the 2 tone upholstery is weak, I have had 2 of them on my 1987, both failed. Both need recovered.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
