Try Corbin or Sergeant. Or just try using plywood...it's a little softer.

:BAHA:

I echo the corbin suggestion. I need to get one of those plywood seats for the gixxer! About 15 minutes of ridin and I gotta stick my hand down my pants in traffic to make sure the boys are still attached!

Wear a one peice. They are remarkable at tucking up the boys. I fear no bump anymore!

Naw, it's not the bumps that bother me, it's the forward riding position. Cuts off circulation so they go numb. Gotta mix around the junk a bit just to make sure it's still there!

Yup. I have no shame on the bike. My "stuff" comes first before other people's opinions of me. Shoot, one of my friend's, rides an '04 CB599, will straight up STAND UP on his bike and rearrange his berries and play stick for all to see. It's quite a sight.

Sorry, got a little carried away. It was funny and you know it.

Anyway, I've never sat on a sport bike with a Corbin seat, but I've sat on a few different cruisers, most of them Harley's, and every one felt so nice with the corbin seat. Only thing, though, is that Corbin seats are very hard when they're new. VERY HARD! It takes a bit of saddle time to break 'em in. It's worth it though.

Corbin's are nice. I know a guy with a RC51 that rode it from Michigan to the GAP..he had a corbin. However, by design they usually curve up a bit on the sides which can hinder you getting your butt off the seat in the twisties. They are also not konwn for being really soft at first.

Sargent in that case might be your best bet.

Speaking of Seats... Hey Gas you know anybody in Michigan that makes a good custom seat? Now that I bought the lower OEM seat, I have an extra seat pan from the original... Might be worth checking on a custom.

That's the biggest reason I bought the F4i instead of the RR
