    Yay! got my wish. A spanking new DR650!

    Spanking because my butt
    feels like it’s been spanked after
    20 minutes. It’s as though all that
    engine power is dedicated to giving
    my rump a hard ride.

    Now It’d be great to take my bike into the local
    upholstery shop for a nice new saddle – but
    in the meanwhile – now that I’ve cleaned out my
    accounts for the bike, does anyone have
    a solution like maybe – sheepskin – foam etc…
    and a way of tying it to the seat so it doesn’t
    fly off and blind the motorist behind me.

    I used the word behind, I meant, ‘at the rear’.

    So what have other members done that works for them?

    I sense I could be the butt of your jokes, so please.

    I’ve used sheepskin with some success, butt it needs to have thick wool. The sheepskin I got was manufactured for babies to sleep on and the wool is short and really thick, ones made for floor rugs are too soft and thin and go flat very quickly and don’t offer any support.

    A lot of people have made their own seats.

    I have a sweet cheeks seat cover left from when I shipped about 10 over from the states. It’s the size for the dr650. You can have it for $40 including shipping. Works really well I have the size down on my Drz400. Contact me on 0211915590 if your keen.

    Try riding a KTM520exc from Tauranga to Invercargill and back for the Burt Monroe Challenge….

    Then you’ll know what a sore rump feels like….

    It was like sitting on an ironing board….. On its side!!!!!

    Hey thanks for the suggestions so far.

    I’ve got camping foam, a sheepskin rug
    (stolen from the dog) pure wool and a
    nice wee sewing machine and some elastic.

    But! What if we drilled the seat from
    underneath with a 28mm spade bit in the
    places it hurts, then plug with a lighter
    foam? That way the seat height would remain
    intact, the seat would look the same except
    it will have more give. Also a hack and slash
    Idea might be to turn the seat upside down
    and drill small holes in it where it hurts.
    Both ideas mean you’d need to keep the original
    seat intact at the top. A careful measure and then
    break your spade bit tip off, so it doesn’t stick
    up through the fake leather. But..

    I haven’t had the seat off yet, so if anyone has done this
    type of adjustment, would be great to know.

    Hey @ss2fly I don’t imagine how it might feel for you
    but a friend once said (after a motorcycle ride). ‘it
    was like being ‘fk’d’ up the arse by a donkey.

    That’s a very unpleasant thought but I imagine it is probably close to how it would feel…

    I couldn’t sit down at all from Taupo to Tauranga, stood on the pegs virtually the whole way…

    NEVER AGAIN on that bike…

    Going to get a Seat Concepts seat for it, they are supposed to be the dogs bollocks….

    mmm, it doesn’t sound good to me. A lot of the issue is the width, you need to keep it narrow at the front and flare it out under the butt. Thats what @addo007‘s sweet cheeks things do.
    Go to Para Rubber and buy some foam, and get some vinyl and a stapler and do it yourself. You can take the existing seat off the base without damaging it so it’s kept good.

    I got a seat concepts for my DR, didn’t like it and sold it.

    Hey thanks for all for the info and links.
    Really liked the links.

    Might be an idea to source a munted dr650
    seat and have a fiddle around. Then I can
    take as long as I like.

    Hey anyone got a dr650 seat floating around?

    @budvar No, I have not bought one, but probably will. These pop up all the time on threads discussing uncomfortable bike seats. Google them. They are cheap as chips for the yanks to buy but postage takes the shine off a little for us, though $50 is torrable.

    OK @brainflex how much do you want for the seat?
    Shipping can be a pain in the you know what.
