Hey Guys!
I finally got the Mugello seat shipped over to NY after 2 months of waiting. Just wanted to post some photos of the Mugello seat for anyone interested. First, some comparison shots with the FT seat.

Some shots of it mounted:

And closeup of the stitching.

Haven't got a chance to ride it yet, only sat on it for a few minutes in the garage. It's slimmer than the FT seat and the seat height is lowered. Will report back again after I get some proper rides in.

That looks great - do you mind me asking how much it was? Have they totally altered the shape of the seat pan/made it flatter?

A new seat is 9500THB, which is around $265USD at current exchange rates. The pan is a bit flatter, evident by the tools compartment being not as deep. I will have to figure out if the tool roll will still fit under there. I didn't have much time yesterday to do stuff. I do believe they can also take your existing seat pan and make adjustments for a bit of a cheaper price, but since we're not in Thailand, we'd have to live w/o a seat for a few months..

How much lowering would you say it gives you compared with stock?

Thanks! Someone on the other scrambler forum has one that is more padded. Check the thread here.
They can pretty much do any seat you want them to. They are a shop in Thailand and are just now starting to do international business. I think they say in the next few months they are going to have a web shop? For now, we can only drool over their accessories on their Facebook page.

By "feel" I would say between a half in to an inch lower. Certain angles and roads I would be very slightly tip-toed on the FT seat and on the Mugello both feet flat all the way.

The seat looks awesome though not sure I like having some of the mechanicals and electrics exposed. Need to get some sort of panels made up to hide them?

Needs some side covers, but it looks really excellent otherwise.

Interested to hear how much more/less comfortable it is.

Definitely agree with you guys about side covers. Not a fan of exposed electronics either. It's just that the straight seat looks so bad with the curved stock side covers that I had to remove it. Speaking of which, did anyone else find incredible amounts of red loctite on their side cover screws? Almost broke an allen key unscrewing those.

Nice seat Ichitz,:cool:

That red loctite, warm the screws up with a hair dryer, or an electric soldering iron, remove all the loctite and replace with blue thread loc, works a treat

Ahh soldering iron is good advice. I will do that in the future. I was just not expecting red loctite. Blue, ok.. but red?


Yep. Way to go ichitz, and thanks for the pictures.

No problem! I know some people are interested in these. Hopefully it will help somebody deciding on seats :)

Nice! I saw some great looking side panels on Mugellos Facebook page (white in color) that go really well with the flatter
seat....let's hope these very creative guys get a store established soon....

looks great. Also curious about the comfort compared to stock. I have been following them on Facebook for a little, their stuff rules. I really dig the side panels and think you could cut something up similar. I think the ones that have the slots with the mesh are a little mad maxey for my taste at the moment for my bike, but overall that look is good!

thanks for the share.

so much overtime work.........

Finally I got a chance to do a proper ride yesterday. Spent about 5 hours on the saddle with lunch break in between. I think the shape of the Mugello is better than the stock FT seat. That 'hump' that used to be pushing against your tailbone is more further back and less noticeable. Not to mention the lower seat helps a little for my shorter legs. However, the Mugello seat feels stiffer than stock and made the bad suspension feel even more horrible if that's possible though that might go away after the seat has been broken in a little. Overall, I started to notice a little soreness when I was almost home so.. close to being 5 hours. Not bad compared to used to being sore after 2hrs on the FT seat.

(next investment, suspension)
