|rain_man_rich||The ventilation is the biggest improvement. Also, it makes the seat a little wider and firmer. This means you can slide around on it changing your position every so often. This is a big help when you get sore in spots you can simply adjust a little bit to compensate. For me it was an excellent upgrade. It did make it taller though and since I'm a bit on the shorter side at 5-10, there was a downside. I'd still consider it an upgrade though.|

ATV Seat Cover
I bought one for a ride from San Jose, Ca to Gig Harbor, WA last year. Definite improvement over sitting on the stock saddle for 800 + miles. I think the ventilation it afforded was more of an advantage than the additional padding, and you can't beat the price. I still have it on the bike, I commute daily, and it's pretty comfy (not waterproof). Currently considering sending my seat to Spencer's Motorcycle Seat Mod (GreatDayToRide.com), very affordable upgrade, and many good reviews from riders. I can't justify buying a Corbin or Russell, I'm frugal (OK, cheap) like most KLR riders.

OK......got my seat cover from Timothys687 in BRAND NEW condition.....THANKS!!!!
Cut off all the straps/buckles and had wifey sew them back on using only one buckle per strap, placed in the middle (underside) of the seat instead of one on each edge........now it fits like a glove and looks great!!!!
Testing only consists of one 30 minute ride to work and a 1 hour lunch ride. So far I love it and can definitely tell it makes a big difference. Can't wait for a longer test ride!!

I tried one. Used it for a while, and the buckles boogered up the decals on my side panels. Finally took it off and gave it to my brother, 'cause he needed it for his 4-wheeler, after his dogs ate the seat off it. I don't miss it. If I do anything else seat-wise, it'll prolly be a Sargent.
