Once I get some seat time on it I will post up a review of the seat on this thread.

Two weeks ago I did a 4 hour ride. This seat is definitely an improvement over the stock seat. The good is that it has nice gel pads on top and a groove in the middle of the seat that allows airflow to help cool that area of your body. The bad is that the surface is somewhat smooth and I was slipping forward too easily while braking. Bigger gel pads and an a more abrasive surface would make this seat amazing. I still like it though and definitely recommend it.

Hey @675Rocket - I took the rear subframe off my STR and was wondering if yours was two pieces bolted together or just a single piece? Looks like yours is different than mine, could be a difference between the Daytona and STR or maybe they changed the design between your '07 and my '14. I'm planning on also powdercoating mine, orange or green, gotta do some photoshopping to get an idea of what's going to look best.

BTW, thanks for the tips on the evac can. Got that thing off a while ago and it opened up SO much space under the seat!

My subframe is one piece. I think this is a difference between generations not models, but I'm not positive. Getting it powder-coated is totally worth it.

No problem. I'm glad the evac can removal worked out.
