Just wondering how comfy the seat is on a KFX450? I used to a Z400, so be honest people!
Thanks!

Its pretty hard but also has really good grip. A few of my friends have z400's and they said they would give up the cush for the grip.

I agree on it being hard, but it is not tooo bad. As for the grip ....... not the greatest IMO ...... it looks like a gripper, but it is not a REAL gripper seat cover.

I like the seat on it. Even though it's a little harder than what I'm used to, it feels comfortable. I love the grip of it too.

The seat is hard. I think I read somewhere somebody claimed " The KFX seat makes a YFZ's seat feel like a pillow!" Very funny, but fairly true.

As soon as a new foam is available, my friends Tammy & Rob over at Cosmic Quads will be makin me a new seat complete with custom cover.

Nice looking seat covers.

Lol, that comment on the pillow was from me. It's pretty hard. Doesn't affect anything when riding MX but when I tested the machine in some agressive trails it became a pain real fast. The seat does have fair grip but is obviously not aftermarket.

Ok, one thing I don't understand...on the white and the green one, the side covers are like a brown, but on the black one, they're black. Wouldn't they all look better black? Is it weird? I haven't seen one in person yet.

yeah the white on and the green one have grey panels on the side. The black one has an all black cover. IMO they should have just put the all black on on all of the bikes.

The z400 seat is so the couch and very comfortable. The KFX450 seat is alot like the yfz seat except I don't feel the seat pan as much. I like the gripper seat cover but will be switching to aftermarket soon. Probably a Quadtech hump seat if it adds foam. They are a little expensive but I want comfort for the long haul.

As far as the engine covers I think you could paint them with engine paint any color you want. The stock color wears off so fast ( mine are down to metal) and I know Lolli will build an awesome quad anyway....

carbon fiber look would be nice.

Pretty sure my DVX seat is about worse than anything. But it does go down onto the side of the tank in the front, so it has good knee grip.
