2019 z1000sx seat
on: 09 Aug 20, 09:56:51
I just got a 2019 z1000sx and I'm sure I remember the seat being more of a torture wrack from when I test drove it years ago.

Has the 2019 one had an upgrade at all?

I have been out riding for a couple of hours on it without any real problem.

The seats were upgraded in 2017/8 and again in 2020. Mine's a 2018, it's comfy for an hour before numb bum sets in. I bought  a pair of quilted seat covers from Wayne at Grizzley Adams customs in Rotherham and fitted some inch thick memory foam underneath. Not only is it more comfortable, they look great as well.

Ah right. It's funny I test drove the new 2020 ninja 1k and had a numb arse after an hour and yet my 2019 has been fine for the 2+ hour runs I have been on so far!.

Either the previous owner done something with the seat or I'm still in the honeymoon phase! (This bike is awesome!)

The shape of the riders seat cushion was changed between 2026 and 2017 model years.  Personally I preferred the original profile. But both are painful after a few hours.

Hours....you mean YEARS of time travelling. That's bound to cause pain somewhere burty  :038:  :008:

I think the 17-19 models are the same and marginally more comfy than previous but none very good for my bony a***  :002:. I kept the Sargent seat from my 14
