So pieces arrived today and here we are folks. 250 Mi on it I already have a lovely upgraded seat which feels so nice. I'm in love with the Bosch bars because I have a Nutty notion when it comes to safety. These things have those wings that come out further and I feel like I would be better safe and guarded if I were to put it down. And last but not least a shift support. The install of that one was super simple I found it to be very easy and everything went off without a hitch the only problem I ran into the entire project was I lost one of those little black pushpin things oh well it'll be okay.
Do you have a source for the seat?

Thank you for the link...how did this seat work out for you? I can only survive 2 hours on the stock seat...is this seat more comfortable? I like the price...though if money was no object I'd go with Corbin...
So far the seat has only been sat on for a couple of trips around the block but the real testing will start this week when I ride to and from work.

As it stands I have very high hopes that it's going to be a good comfortable spot for my butt to reside. It feels a hell of a lot better than the stock one just with a little bit of testing I've done.

I hope it turns out good for you...I was surprised to hear this vlogger say that the Diablo seat is "firmer" (but lower) than stock...if anything, I'm looking for something kinder to my rear...I'm only 160# and can only last 2-3 hours before pressure points make it too painful to continue...

If you look at the name brand aftermarket comfort seats, Mustang, Corbin, Saddlmen, etc. you will find that comfort seats are almost always firmer than OEM seats. That combined with a difference in shape is what gives them the comfort for longer rides. A soft seat is usually only comfortable for short rides, it isn't supportive enough to be comfortable on longer rides.

I have a different aftermarket seat on the Honda Trail, and it's firmer and much more comfortable than the stock one for days where I'll go through 2+ tanks of gas on the bike.

So I would like to announce that as per the state of North Carolina I am now a licensed motorcycle rider now that they have given me my endorsement. I managed to get my 125 get a permit and then get my test taken out and get my endorsement in approximately 560 MI LOL.
