I have only had the chance to use it once because I bought it in the winter but it does it job perfectly. The seat was really hard to put on the first time because it needed to be broken-in (mold to the framework of the bike), but after the seat had been bolted on for a while it slid on with ease. Some say that the seat seemed too hard but I didn't notice it while I was riding. It keeps your posture much better and you can take turns much more effectively. The grip (seat cover) on the seat is also high quality. Sliding around doesn't happen much at all and that allows you to focus more on riding than actually staying on the bike. I forgot to mention that the seat also comes with multiple decals that were very cool. That was a great bonus! Overall it's a great product and I would buy again if I needed to.

- The insurmountable quality of SDG is proven with their Step Seat, designed for full throttle racing since 1991.
- The unique shape of the SDG Step Seat provides a ridge toward the back of the seat to keep the rider in the optimal racing position.
- SDG built the Step Seat ready to install. The nylon composite seat frame is built to OEM specifications. The padding of the seat is constructed out of closed cell foam to provide water-resistance and reduce seat foam breakdown. Wrapping the Step Seat up is a 3 piece gripper seat cover that keeps the rider stuck in position and features double-stitched, taped seams.
- SDG is a company that is breed for racing and they took advantage of in-house design and shaved weight.
- The Step Seat was engineered with replaceable mounting brackets on most models.
Don't really notice the bump, maybe because the new seat has so much grip i'm hardly sliding back into it. THought it would play a bigger part, seems hardly noticeable. Still a solid seat.
It fits and works great on my 2012 KX250F.
Motosport is always my first choice for all of my motocross parts always really fast shipping even run there logo on my graphics
I have 3 bikes with these seats and it shows no wear after 40-50 races and really keep my up on the tank in the berms. Thanks foir a great prouct and supe fast shipping.
Makes riding easier I can't explain how well it hold you in hard rough corners. Great product.
If you have a 450, get this seat. No matter how hard i open the throttle, i will not slide off the seat. The hump of the seat is in perfect location and to top it off, the seat is really comfortable. Take off the old seat, slap this one on and your ready to ride.
Well instal wasn't the easiest with my over sized tank. I had to cut the plastic piece the hooks onto the tank but i had to do that with the stock one so no biggie. After i had it on it took a little bit to get used to and once i did i loved it. I had it for a month or so and got a small rip on the side, it didn't bother me because i race hare scrambles and stuff like that always happens. Well after about 3 months and a 2 hour race i now have a huge gash in the side and have to buy a new seat. Great i get to spend another $125 to buy a new one. Performance was great, Fit and function was decent, Durability was bad
Well i bought this for my 07 crf250r and it went on no hassel. The step was in the perfect location for me and it really helped my corner speed by keeping me it the "ATTACK" position. SDG seats are the way to go i also have an SDG tall seat on my RM 125 and i have had it for about a year now and it still looks new, Built well and withstands the abuse. I will def purchase SDG seats from now on
I have a 2007 CRF250R. What can I say, I took my stock seat off put this new seat on, put the bolts back in and went riding. This is exactly what I expected.
All of the bad reviews about the poor fit of this seat did not pertain to my bike so I decided to give it a shot. Glad I did - this thing fits perfectly on my '08 CRF450. It does exactly what it's supposed to do and you don't have to break down your current seat to use it. Would like it even more if they offered a color other than black but whatever. It works great. It fits perfectly on my bike. Done deal.
Seat is well built but fit is poor. Bought for an 06 Honda CRF450. You can slide your hand between back of seat and fender.
Let me start by saying this is a well built, durable seat. However, the fit sucks. The base touchs the subframe cross-member leaving the seat brackets an inch too high when trying to line up the holes. Choices are to force the seat down and install bolts. But back of seat floats, doesn't look right. I notched the seat base to fit over the subframe cross-member, re-drilled the bracket holes and got the seat to go 1 inch lower which is great since I'm only 5'9". Would I buy it again? Probably, just because of the price savings. This was on a 2007 RMZ 450 Suzuki.
Installed this on my 2007 crf250 and it bolted on with no problems. The seat is stiffer than stock but it definitely does what it is designed to do. Good quality seat cover also. If your a woods/trail rider this seat isn't for you. mainly for racers who don't sit much, but when you do, you have to be planted firmly and securely.
This seat is awesome for forcing you into the pocket through the apex of a turn. A friend of mine had one on his RMZ-250 and I loved the way it felt, so I put this one on my Yamaha. It's not as cushy as the stock seat, but you shouldn't be sitting that much anyway.
seat installation was difficult. had to shim mounting brackets alot and then was still tough to get the bolts started. one installed the front moves side to side about .5". but i can say the seat does what its supposed to and holds you when your cornering. especially when there are bumps in the corner to buck you off. installed on an 06 yz250f
seat didnt fit what so ever also the seat was exstremly hard and the bump was to far forword i returned
I got this for my kx250f 07 it fit great and looks good but the craftsmanship could have been a little better , right were the seat steps up the cover is kind of loose but i would buy it again it hold you in place on a hard acceleration.
the KX250F and RMZ250 2005 model share the same seat, but that's it.
