    2009 Tuono seat upgrade

    I'm looking for a more comfortable seat for my 2009 Tuono Factory. Corbin, Sargent or gell seat.

    Anybody recommend a manufacturer or where to buy one from?

    I can only find one for the model up to 2006. I assume they are not interchangeable with the later model?

    Thanks in advance.

    I tried a Corbin but it put me in a different position that I found uncomfortable.
    After about an hour I'd have a sore bum which I don't get from the stock seat.
    I'm 6'3" with long legs and my T is fitted with Woodcraft rearsets.
    Do not go gentle into that good night,

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    i love my corbin, Im 5'9 and have Gilles rearsets. I have had a few 12+ hour days on the bike and my bum didnt hurt, maybe numb? haha. But the seat is nice a firm and has a good contour.

    Yeah... I also like the feel of it. I'm also 5'9" and find it noticeably more comfortable than stock......that's my seat for sale in the link and the only reason I'm selling is because of the color. I don't like the black seat on a dream blue bike. I have 2 blue seats and just bought gel to re-do one of them.
