I tried, but my backside and the stock seat just did not want a long term relationship. I did talk with another Ninja 1000 owner who rode from Ohio to the Rocky Mountains and back on the stock seat with no issues.Candy-a$$e$... I rode all day, every day for week up in the mountains of NC/TN on the stock N1K seat and was never uncomfortable in the saddle. I do wear bicycle shorts with the gel padding, but I think the seat is very comfortable after breaking it in... Man-up!
Sorry, let me rephrase my smart *** question.Less than 3, I'd say. I can stick it on the scales when I get home if you'd like.
