Enduro Engineering Standard Complete Seat

…They Say

Our complete seats are manufactured right here in the USA. They offer all-day riding comfort with a redesigned shape that features a wider top surface and larger radius edges. 

This combined with our use of injected moulded memory foam will give you the most support of any seat on the market. Seats are available in standard, tall, or low height. 

 

…We say

The seat is a straight replica of the standard model which bolts on as good as KTM’s production one. 

The foam feels the same consistency as the stock one, with the only difference being that the surface material is a little bit grippier, which we reckon is a good thing but is something that depends on your preference. 

The grip levels don’t try to pull your pants down (no one wants that!) but do offer a touch more resistance and hold for your bum when you sit and therefore feels more positive as a result, especially when cornering. 

Working well in wet conditions ensured the seat preformed solidly regardless of the weather.

Enduro Engineering Skid Plate

…They say

Enduro Engineering's Skid Plates have been refined to increase the quality and durability that you have come to expect. Larger slot filled wings better protect covers and water pump without increasing weight, while our new flap on the front keeps the front wheel roost from packing in between the plate and cases. 

 

…We say

The skid plate is CNC-machined aluminium and fits nicely — protecting the engine covers and casings. 

Granted you’re are adding additional weight to the bike but as a protective part, skid plates can be worth their weight in gold when you’re scaling logs, rocks and even concrete pipes on a regular basis. 

The fitment was easy, clamping onto the rear lower cross member on the frame and the two bolt clamps at the front. 

Overall the Enduro Engineering skid plate got the job done and is one that’s built to last.
