Comfort Seat wanted

Good Morning...looking for a used seat for a Gen 2. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, but will travel 5-6 hours for one. Can't justify a new one but willing to go $500 +/-...T.I.A.

The problem is two fold.


"Off the rack" seats are often just a variation on the OEM version; built to an "average rider" of which you may or may not be built like.


"Custom" seats will address your requirements but be build to your measurements. You can buy a used one but you need to suss out the measurements of the person it was made for and compare that to you. Alternately, you can buy with the knowledge that you'll need to send it in for some tweaking.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

Frank, I have a Yamaha Comfort gel-seat front & back that I bought for my 2014 in 2015 (should fit your gen 2) that I used for about 1-1 1/2 years in perfect condition that Iím thinking about selling. If you have any interest pm me and make me an offer.

Yes, Gen3/3 seats have the same pan. @frankzrinyi do you need it to have a cover? I got one in my stash, foam no cover... I could look for the cover....

I have a barely used original/stock seat - it's the original seat from my 2018 FJR. I rode on it for only 2,100 km, and I weigh 165 lbs, so it has had very light duty. If interested, please PM me.

Hi Frank! I tried to respond to your PM, but couldn't (the forum wouldn't let me - not sure why). If you're interested in the seat, I can send you or post some photographs, and find out the cost to ship it to the Ottawa area.

You might also look at the Seat Concepts option. Got mine done for $235.

Looks good!

Seat Concepts is very popular in the off road community.
