I just got a new NC750X 2021 recently. My feet feel cramped due to my height (6ft tall, maybe long legs). I was looking for a new seat at first, but there aren't many available for this year's model. A cushion or a way to increase my seating height would be better. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions? I can see some people mentioning Airhawk here and there. Their website is down for the moment. What are the best options to increase the seat height and maybe improve the comfort at the same time?

Thank you.

I am 6ft tall, 34" inseam and I have been using one of these until I decide on a more permanent solution for the seat. It will raise you <1" once it conforms to your body but it definitely improves seat comfort.


I have tried Airhawks in the past and never liked the feel. I tried an Alaskan sheepskin cover on my NC and it was only a marginal improvement.This is more of an improvement but I will still do something more permanent with the seat. I hope the aftermarket does something soon, @saldog bought a Sargent seat, it will attach to the 2021 but it does not fit very well near the front.

I am holding off on lowering pegs until I have the seat sorted out. There are many options for lowering the pegs. The downside is they reduce cornering clearance.

If you raise the seat the bars are going to be much too low. I used offset lowered foot pegs and raised the bars.

Did you use this on the 2021 model or on an older NC? Looks like in 2021 Honda decided to lower the seat another inch from previous years (who knows if they are following a market of people getting older and shrinking).

They lowered the suspension on the 21's

I ordered one of the Skwoosh pads also. A slightly different shape than yours. I ordered it directly from Skwoosh: https://skwoosh.com/mid-size-motorcycle-gel-pad-with-breathable-mesh/

Note: I returned my Sargent Seat. Sargent seems to be very easy to deal with and gave me no guff at all. The only thing is I have to pay for return shipping, about $60.

Ouch! on the shipping. Unfortunately, that leaves us '21 owners with no other option than a custom build or Seat Concepts. I see a bunch of used SC seats for sale for various motorcycles which make me question the comfort they provide.

These are the problems buying a new model or newly redesigned models.

I have a Seat Concepts seat on my 2020 NC 750 and am very happy with it. Little wider eliminates the slope. That and the handlebar risers noticeably increased riding comfort.
I am 6’1’’ 215 pounds 34inch inseam.

The Seat Concept seems to do exactly what I need: raise the seat a bit and improve comfort. But I don't understand the three options they offer, are they fully water proof, do they all work the same or do you advice one particular option?

I don’t remember picking any options really so can’t help there. I really assume they are waterproof. Never noticed a wet butt when left out in the rain at work.
670cc has delt with them more and is a frequent poster maybe he can chime in. I had them install it on the bare pan for me $25 seemed like a bargain to me.
