The problem with taking someone else's experience with an aftermarket seat for advice then buying that seat
is everyone has a different anatomy, and different needs for a comfortable seat. A $500 seat that might be perfect for one person might become a numb-butt ride for someone else.
The answer is to customize a seat for the rider. That would cost a lot of money if you pay someone else to do it, but you can (surprisingly) Do It Yourself and get really good results.
Before you spend $500 or more for a one-size-fits-all aftermarket seat, read thru this website: Home
If nothing else that website does a good job of explaining the issues, like having a groove down the middle if your tail bone is a problem, shifting the position forward or back by adjusting the foam, and what it is that makes your butt go numb...
I modified the stock seat on my Vstar 650 and improved it greatly, for me. I might modify it further to add some gel padding - but the mods I did only cost me about $30.
Something that makes the DIY approach less risky - a lot of people buy aftermarket seats, so there are a lot of stock seats available for your bike. If you totally ruin your stock seat, you can get another one cheap, or if you were going to buy an aftermarket seat anyway, your stock seat is already 'ruined' as far as using it in its present state is concerned...
so you have no risk in attempting to make the stock seat better.
