Looking 4 Replacement Seat for 04 r1

Hello All,

I am New to the Forum, and Riding a new r1! I just switched over from a 9 year old Ninja 750, and I gotta say that the r1's stock seat really is uncomfortable compared to the Ninja. Its much harder, and the slope seems to want to slide you forward easy if your not tucked pretty low or clamping with the knees.
Has anyone bought an aftermarket seat they really like yet? How's the comfort, and does it reduce any of heat coming from those undertail pipes?

Thanks..

I have no info on buying a new seat, but here is an old thread of someone who modified their stock one.

Might be able to get some pictures from him. They used to be in the thread, but a server crash a while back dropped a bunch of pictures.
