Quad Tech makes taller foam and matching cover.

http://www.quadtech-atv.com/

Haven't looked lately to see if they added the 700XX to their website yet, may have to call them.

Someone does make a cover for the headlight, I don't recall the company off the top of my head. They have been mentioned on this website though, search may be able to find it. I just took the easy way out and used black number plate background to cover my headlight.

They make a desert seat and a standard seat for the 700XX. Just call them up and tell them what you want. They are pretty quick too.

I'm thinking it was around $475.00 if I remember correctly. But that was 1 and a half years ago.

That sounds like the price for a complete seat. For just the foam and cover, I believe I paid around $200, but that was a few years ago.

I've heard that trying to email them was useless. So I just called them and ordered what I wanted. They were real easy to work with and seemed to really be helpful.

Doug, yes that was for a complete seat. You can buy just the foam and cover if you want to do it yourself. Also you can send them your seat to recover if you like.

Yeah... that looks comfy. The other thing for me is I'm 6'3", so that extra height would be nice. I am also curious if its a whole new seat. The only thing I see of concern is it appears to have a different shape where it runs under the gas tank edge.

I bought the foam and cover and did it myself. I think it was like $220 for the kit. The seat fits perfect. The only reason it looks different by the tank is because i pulled the cover a little too tight on one side, the other side is perfect

For $220 that may be in my future. I would probably take it to a local upolsty place. I wouldn't trust myself. Whats it add for height? About 2"?

I guess im not sure about how much higher it is, if you have the right staple gun seat covers are easy, and its not like you can mess it up, you can always pull the staples out and start over
