Congratulations on becoming a SCR owner!!
Scary deal about the front fender bolt eating the tire, though! Yikes! Glad you are okay!!

I had the same opinion on the seat as you. It would be a deal breaker if there weren't alternatives.
Corbin makes a whole seat starting at $393. Corbin Motorcycle Seats & Accessories | Yamaha SR 400 | 800-538-7035
Seat Concepts makes a terrific cover & foam kit for your stock seat pan. https://seatconcepts.com/products/yamaha-2017-18-scr-950

I have the latter and am super pleased with how it rides - especially for what's about 1/2 the cost of a Corbin.
I installed the kit myself in well under an hour. A sympathetic local upholsterer would do it for about $25, I'd imagine.

I'm going a little different way on this bike.
I'm gonna be turning it into a bolt R spec knock off. With the conversion to SCR on the occasional weekend.
Its a daily rider for me and I am not comfortable on something this heavy, this tall, and this hard and narrow and slippery a seat.

I've ridden heavier, but they were lower …
I've ridden taller but they were lighter …
I've ridden harder and slipperier seats - that one time I sat on a saw plastic horse by accident … LOL.

Yea corbin may be an idea, as is a cover on top of this, but the bolt parts are already on the way … and I have dismal upholsterers in this place, so I've gotta do it myself, and I am no good at that.

You must love working... how much time do you anticipate it will take for said conversion?
My bolt conversion was under 1hr - and most of that was spent looking for my tools, and then cussing when I have to use a 3" long extension instead of my 6".
BTW its a bolt now. The footpegs are the same as SCR position, so a C spec swap would have left me a near perfect C spec - except the handlebars.

So SCR to bolt family swap goes like this -

R spec footpeg swap will take a couple hrs. Skip that and its under 1 hr.
Cspec handle bar swap will be a couple hrs. Skip that and its under 1 hr.

Personally I love the SCR bar over C spec or R spec. So I would never do C spec bar swap.
Rspec footpeg is a good swap … I think I'd like the shin crackers out of there, but I am yet to break skin so I'll live with it for now. Maybe winter I'll do a swap to R footpeg.

Its too much work. A full matched body set (fenders and tank) off ebay/bolt forum I may do sometime. But I wont be touching the scr tank. The tank and fenders in grey are just gorgeous, I want the option of putting back that bike to the original colors.
