Not sure what theft is like in your area, but after I invested a fairly hefty sum in the Honda E-Energy seat, I realized how relatively simple it would be for a thief to remove the 4 phillips-head screws and make off with it. I purchased some security torx screws and added a washer and threaded metal sleeve to duplicate the dimensions of the oem one. Not foolproof, but it should deter most thieves expecting stock screws.

My seat was a full front seat and a cover for the rear seat.

It is an amazing seat and I am very pleased with the purchase, though very pricey.

However, I think the honda energy seat or whatever is around 350. Regardless, I would rebuy this seat for any bike.

the luimoto was a little over 100 bucks but you have to remove the oem vinyl and re-staple the new cover. offers more gripping ability than the smooth vinyl oem seat. how did it go re covering the rear seat? did it require a pneumatic staple gun?

I had the same issue when i bought my 2017 rr

Ended up getting the stompgrips and Luimoto seat. Much better than the slippery stock seat
