Stock seat

Hi all:
Rode a few days in Az.( thanks Berger), my stock seat on my FE 570 was literally a pain in the Ass. Any suggestions for an after market seat? Which is better, I'm 6'2" so height is not a problem.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks

I've had good results using Guts competition seat covers and their tall foam, here's the site.

Re: Stock seat

I am also 6'2" and installed the Guts tall medium foam with the competition cover. It was really comfortable, but I couldn't reach the ground in rocky terrain and kept dropping the bike, so I switched to the Guts medium foam with the stock cover. When I ordered the foam I asked for a medium foam that was on the softer side. They told me each batch is different, so they can sort of pick something in between. I have heard that the soft foam is too soft and you hit the seat pan.

With the tall soft foam you won't hit the seat pan, but most riders find it too soft & and limits the "Feedback" you get from a firmer seat. I'm also 6'2", but 60 years old, so I prefer a softer saddle.
My friends run the stock seat ht with the medium foam and truly dig it, guess it's all about riding style..(Or lack of.. )
