Wow. Riding difference is significant. Big improvement for me. This seat has a perfectly shaped place that my butt just drops into. I'm 6'2" and 180.
This keeps my nuts about 2 inches back off the tank without any effort now. Right where I wanted to be but it took some effort (thighs and knees) before. By being a couple inches further back by default, the reach is that much longer to the bars. This doesn't bother me much because it feels more comfortable with my butt securely set in the seat (I'm not pushing back off the bars to stay in place anymore) and I have Helibars on my diningroom table...install in a few days.
You can actively slide up to the tank or push back for a full tuck but the neutral default is just right on....like a gentle, natural detent. Because the seat is a little wider than stock, the seat height feels higher when stopped / feet on the ground. It isn't higher but your thighs can't angle down quite as much so you have more distance from your feet. I am just barely able to be flat footed at a stop now.
Turns / hanging off has slightly more resistance but it's minor. Feels really secure.
Dig the materials and workmanship.
I can't imagine backing up out of this mod. Best money spent so far.
