    Newbie here, I bought a bike  from a seller who had hacked the saddle foam to fit his  shorter girlfriend. It's bearable around town but not on the highway. I would like to try oem before I go the Seat Concepts route. Or perhaps a Comfort seat if no OEM around.

    If all else fails, there’s always the (cheaper?) option of placing an air seat over the dip in the seat you already have.
    They’re surprisingly comfortable once they’ve been inflated correctly.

     Thanks for the thought, but I already have 2 Airhawks, a dual sport medium and their smaller triangular cushion. 4.5 hours in the saddle yesterday proved that neither is good after an hour or so.
    The problem is that the hole is quite deep and neither cushion fits well in/on it.
    Hence the search for a Honda or Seat concepts foam.

    Still looking for that elusive Honda cb500x saddle for my 2020 bike. Nobody has upgraded and has their old foam or saddle to sell?

    The thing is that most “comfort seats” involve using the oem seat pan. I think the oem seat is excruciating but cannot bring myself to spend £500 plus on what is essentially an experiment, whether seat concepts, sargent etc. on a long journey i now use a sheepskin over an air pad lol

    Found a Corbin saddle and had it shipped a very long way, but it fits well, if not heavily on the bike
    More importantly, my bum likes it. :152:
