Default Comfort Passenger Seat

Hello,

I have a 2012 CBR250R and I am currently trying to find out what aftermarket seats are available. I am mainly interested in the passenger seat. My girlfriend likes to ride with me but she thinks the stock seat is too hard. I know Corbin makes a passenger seat but anyone knows of a different company?

She can try cycling shorts. Spandex shorts that have gel built in to them. Wear them under her pants.

Good suggestion. However, most girls don't want to look like they're wearing a diaper. We're vain that way lol.

I appreciate the feedback but is that really all there is?
I guess we're going bike shorts shopping then...

Hi. I don't know where you live, I'm assuming the US. Over here, there are a few people who will build more comfortable seats on the stock one. It may be an idea to search on Google for custom seat builders or upholsterers in your area.

I bought a spare rider seat from cheap cycle parts. It was $38 iirc. I pulled the staples, carved out the hard foam and replaced it with some squishy eggcrate foam that came in a shipping box. It had the desired effect of lowering the seat but it expands back to make the seat look normal. The added benefit is the softer foam is more comfortable. I still have the stock seat if I need to return.

Corbin makes a high quality part but the foam they use is somewhere between concrete and pine for stiffness. They are known to break in at around 100,000 miles. And you could buy ten stock seats for the price.

Butt Buffer makes a pillion pad (gel). I ride with one (a medium size) 100% of the time. I think she would be happy.
Pillion pad is 11 x 8" $55.50
Their next size is a small at 12 x 12" $72.50
They also do inserts in your stock seat. $110 for the pillion size.
