i ripped the OEM seat and put a gelpad from Luimoto and got the cover as well. it turned out quite good and not changing the height. looks cool too and has a good grip. more comfi than the OEM. it was worth the effort and good result at the end. hope this helps. here is pic as well

not really, because there is a liner which you put right on top of the gelpad so it is pretty smooth. so far so good and those 300 mile rides are a bit easier.

Did the liner come with the lumoto? Or oem?

liner came in with the gelpad. it is a whole kit. the cover you have to order seperately. they also hv nice video on how to do the whole job.

Question

For those who've made the change from stock to race seat: I'm not clear on whether the race seat is angled upward at the front, i.e., is the 'nose' of the race seat higher than stock to help keep your butt toward the rear and prevent you sliding forward? Thanks!

The race seat is awesome for the track and hanging off the bike. For long rides, not so much. For me, my ass and inner thighs start to hurt after about 30 minutes if I'm just planted there most of time. I would have to shift my butt off of it every now and then because it gets quite uncomfortable. I slowly started to get used to it, but it still gets uncomfortable after a while. Not sure if anyone else here has the same issue?

I actually enjoy it more on long rides. The stock seat had me squirming after 50 miles.

Update: spent about 4 hours on the bike today and 4 yesterday. The comfort seat is more comfortable, but I do think the race seat is a better insulator against the heat.
