I just called a KTM dealer to inquire about the replacement seat (Tall foam) for a 2001 520exc. I was quoted about $160.00. I purchased one for a 520SX model (Tall foam) two months ago, and the cost was $90.00. Has anybody else noticed a price increase?

Also, is there any difference between the EXC and MXC seat?

The MXC and EXC are the same.

For an SX I have a complete 1" taller GUTS Racing seat, cover, base and brackets that I need to sell. Never used. $90 + $6 shipping.

cp380sx,
Is that Guts seat cover bigger than normal? I have one and wanted tall soft foam but did not think the cover would fit. I love my cover and did not want to buy new seat/foam/cover.

$160=Robbery.

I paid $80-90 all told for my seat (tall one+cover+install). I saw a brand new seat setup for the same price at my dealer (2002). I guess I am (very) lucky.

I spoke to Midwest KTM in Valparaiso, IN last week they had both SX and E/Mxc tall seats in stock around $90.

enduro eng'g has tall soft, tall hard,& tall super hard foams + covers. holeshot has tall soft & hard. i've seen a regular cover stretched over a tall foam (buddy of mine wanted to keep his matching graphics), but it takes some tugging. i've tried the tall soft--hated it, too mushy. i have the tall hard now, it's ok, but i've got the super hard on backorder. i'm in the minority on ktm's stock foams, i think they are just right, just too short. the stocker feels like i am climbing out of a hole when standing, the taller 1s fix that. my tall foam has the guts orange & black gripper cover on it; works great, but some of the graphics rubbed off real quick, so if that bothers you, you might consider another 1.

Trewent you da man! I called Midwest Cycle and they had the EXC tall OEM complete seat in stock [I think it was $85.00 (I left my notes at work)]. I told the woman who took my order that I got the info from this board. When she asked from whom, I gave her your posting name. I believe she knows who you were and was a happy to help.

Seems like a nice shop. The dealer who quoted me the 160.00 was North Couty Yamaha/KTM. They usually have really good prices but not this time.

Thanks again for the help.

How much taller is the OEM "Tall" seat. Does anyone have any idea how this seat compares to the tall foam and cover Enduro Eng sells?

One other question...what's the tele # for Midwest?

Thanks a million.

Midwest KTM is my local dealer and also my sponsor. jerry Birkey is pretty fair on his prices.
