I hear you! If you come across one let me know. I haven't found one either and have contemplated taking the seat to an upholstery shop and seeing what kind of custom setup they could come up with. My parents live about 2 hours from me and I prefer to drive my bike instead of my V8 to see them. Nice ride through the mountains, except my butt is asleep a little over an hour into the ride!

i heard of someone that does a gel insert, they just gut the seat and redo it all, but im not sure where it was someplace on the east coast? why does having a brand new bike have to be such a pain in my impatient ass, i want all this stuff i see on older models but no one makes it yet

I just wrote a email to Corbin seats. They show a seat for the 2007, but when you hit the link it only shows seats for 05-06. Hopefully Corbin will have some, they are pricey but well worth the money IMO. I need a seat badly, my balls can't handle a 150+ mile ride on the stock seat.

Sargent cycles in Jacksonville FL. Sent mine out, just got them back. They did an awesome job, seats are much more supportive. They also added foam to the rear seat and raised its angle, built a ridge in it. Keeps the ol ladie's rear comfortable and in place. They really did a bangup job. Give em a call, they will go over all the options and pricing with you.

Yep they sure do, but you have to buy it from one of their vendors. Here is a link to one:

Nice seat, I am still trying to decide which version to buy.

Here is some pics of the seats from sargent cycles. The front is unmodified, I just had the foam replaced with a more supportive closed cell foam and recovered. The rear has been built up thicker, the angle was raised, and a small ridge was placed in it to help keep the passenger from sliding forward when braking.

Yellow, that passenger seat looks like it would keep my girl's big ass pretty comfy for a good trip. That sounds like a hell of a deal, $300 for both seats & shipping. Great job bro. I also don't see many yellow kawis around my area so it's great to see one here.
