    Default Ordering Suzuki GEL seat question?

    I just want to be sure before I order. Does this come with the driver and passenger seats?

    Full Cut CARBON Textured 990A0-71022-CRB

    Thanks

    Yes. I'm pretty sure if you want the driver's seat only you have to go aftermarket. I love mine. My stock seat was great for the first 15000 miles. Then on my last 560 mile ride home from Las Vegas I hurt so bad. So I found a new gel seat on the forum for a great deal. I'm glad I did because I love it

    I just read my comment. I have the Suzuki gel seat. On the colder days or nights it is a bit harder at first. But it softens up right away and it keeps my butt warm. It really holds the body heat.

    Cool. If you go with the Suzuki one with the passenger seat on it looks cool. The rear has M109R on the back.

    That's a great price. I paid 200 bucks shipped for mine. The guy installed it and realized he needed a full cut because the regular cut pushed him to close. Regular cut is perfect for me with my short legs and the wife in the back.

    I wanted the regular cut but could not find one new for sale. I am 6' but I feel like I am reaching for the bars and pegs. We will see I have not ridden it yet so I may fit better when wearing boots and gear.

    I knew I needed a non-standard seat right away and from the feedback I have read the GEL seat is a good option.

    Thanks for the photos. I was not buying for looks but rather comfort and if it looks better to boot that is a plus.

    You can look in to some 1 1/2 or 2 inch risers. I've heard that will help a lot. I'm not positive, but I think you can get away without changing your clutch and brake cables. Good luck

    Same seat I have. Its not full cut. If it is...I've been misled.

    This is the full cut. Follow the back of the seat, and the seams running down.
    Totally different. I ordered a 'FULL CUT' and it was a Regular.

    I have a full cut and it looks like the one in the photo posted by snickaren. It is much better fitting for my size (big and long) than the regular gel seat.

    The "Full cut" we have...arent the models that give more leg distance.
    The one I posted the small pic of does. I've sat on both, hence why I
    ordered a "full cut". The ones we have...not nearly the same.

    Default OEM part numbers

    Does anyone have the Regular cut OEM part number. Just wondering why they are shipping the wrong item. Anyone remember what the code was on the seat when you received it. I am liking the fatter version but afraid of getting the wrong one especially from ebay.

    "Richard" on this forum has the regular cut gel seat. I have the full cut gel seat and it sets me back further than stock and further than the regular cut. I am very happy with mine. It is very comfortable compared to the OEM butt burner.

    So I am so confused, I am in the market for a new seat as well, but this one with the smallest back is the one that I want, so is that the part number 990A0-71022-CRB or it is something else??

    I agree. I bought one off a member here. Noticed right away, after installing it, that I sit further back than I did with the stock seat. That and the one inch drop risers make for a pretty aggressive riding position on a M109R.

    Not only that, I like the look of it better than the stock seat. And don't like the look of that seat with the real thin back side at all.

    The seat that I have, which is the thicker one...DOES sit further back than stock. The thinner one sits even further.
    But its not enough for me. So I had my stocker modified. My stocker sits down, and back moreso than my gel.
    ONLY because it was altered.

    I want he thinner one. If anyone has one and wants the full cut (so they say) I'll trade and pay shipping, both ways.

    Could it be so that the extra extra thin is an older model ? Just thinking out loud...

    So this is the seat I want, Oneidasuzuki list it, but I have not verified it with them. No where else can I find it. Full cut I can find all day long. Is this a reputable dealer, as I don't want full cut if it sits me further back, that would make it to uncomfortable.
