I have the stock saddle on the XS650E.  I usually don't ride it more than 
200 miles per day.  The longest ride I ever took it on was on the way home 
from Milwaukee, WI, which is where I purchased it in 1998.  That was two 450 
mile days, back to back.  I used a strap on gel pad and it was just fine. 
Same one I used cross-country on the XV920R earlier that same year.

Re the XT600, I don't know much about it, other than the fact that the 
engine shares a lot of parts with the SRX600.  $750 sounds reasonable, 
although you didn't mention the model year.  Be advised that the phrase 
"need carbs cleaned" is sometimes a diversionary tactic used by sellers to 
cover up more serious problems.  You roll the dice and take your chances.
