Seat Concepts seats are constructed using a foam material that is a much higher quality than OEM seat foam. Our proprietary formula provides a more plush and active ride, while still offering the necessary amount of support. Our unique comfort shape maintains a similar contour to stock at the front of the seat so the rider’s legs are not spread farther apart, but tapers out towards the mid-point to distribute rider weight over a greater area.
These features combine to offer a custom seat feel, and provide greater enjoyment and increased range on a long commute, or Dual-Sport ride!
Some 2016 and all 2017 and up models have an indentation in the underside of the seat pan called a pan pocket that provides additional clearance for an electrical module that will be present on 2018 2 stroke fuel injected (TPI) models. All Seat Concepts 2016-18 KTM Complete seats DO NOT have pan pockets but will fit all models except the 2 stroke fuel-injected models.

Per OEM specifications, the seat bolts should be tightened NO MORE than 7 ft/lbs to prevent tightening or stripping. Over tightening can cause a failure. Cross threading can also be an issue and should be avoided. DO NOT use air tools to tighten seat bolts as it can cause them to be stripped.
