I'm over in the US so the sale isn't worth our time/money to ship but if I may...Why do you like the stock seat better? I'm in the market for the comfortable seat and would like your personal input.
Thanks

The comfort seat for me pushed me too far forward and was putting extra weight on my wrists !! after about 30 mins they were killing me. I liked the stock seat but it was far too slippy so after trying the comfort seat i have had it recovered instead.
I am 6ft 1 by the way.

If you're riding a sportbike correctly, you should have ZERO pressure/weight on your wrists. You should be supporting yourself with your legs latched onto the bike/tank and your upper body supporting you. Your arms should be very loose and the only pressure your hands should experience is the slight pushes you give to turn the bike. That will probably solve your wrist problem no matter what seat you use.

I have put stompgrips on the bike now which does away with this problem but i still find the stock seat a better fit .
