I'd say whatever his basic option is. Like Terry's custom seats the basic is $200.

The guy I used was $200 for the front/rear and sissy bar pad. He resculpted the front and rear seat as they were ribbed and I didn't want that carnival-ride look on the seats. He ended up adding a firmer layer of padding on the front and rear seats at no extra charge. He also painted the pans with some really stinky paint (must be something that sticks to the plastic real well, but for a few days it smelled something awful).

I'm actually going to bring him a bunch of other stuff too in the future. One thing in particular is the SuperDuke seat. It has a bunch of panels (andys cousin had it made I guess) the main panel your butt is on is wicked slippery.......as soon as I whack the throttle I get slid way back on the seat. Gonna see if he can replace just that panel......

Mike, Any updates on the seat options and who did you decide to work with?

I love my saddlemen seat on my zx10... seriously a game changer. I enjoyed the corbin on my VFR over stock significantly, the saddlemen is very doable on the sportbike and I wouldn't have it without the channel again lol.

Default Seat options, replace or redo?

I emailed the saddlemen and the downside is you need to send your OEM seat and wait for it to come back. Another thing is that they use gel and I read a few negative reviews about gel to heat up and not offer a good support.

I've been using it in southeast Georgia all summer, no problem. They had a seat ready made for my zx10 with their own pan though.

Dunno about the whole gel thing but I've never had one "issue" with mine. The material they use doesn't dry / repel water well. Only really matters when I wash the bike so I cover it with a bag

I looked up their site- looks like for the fz1 they don't have their own seat pan.. so it's different for us ready made folks.
