I bought a 650 seat for my Vee and it works, albeit, I then took off the front rubber bumpers and sliced off 1/2" to lower the seat...

When I sent my 08 Vee seat in for an RDL conversion, I put a Wee seat on it so I could continue to ride. To me they were the same seat. The year of the Wee seat was unknown, so from that experience I'd say that seats from multiple years within the 02-12 time frame could interchange.

I've owned a 2008 Vee and a couple of Wee's (2007 and 2011 if I recall correctly). The seats are all interchangeable between these older models (i.e. all Vstroms prior to the big redesigns that started in 2012 with the Glee). The stock Vee seat is noticeably taller than the stock Wee seat and is also more padded. The Wee seat is lower and feels like you are sitting on a wooden log. After market seats designed for the bikes mentioned above are also interchangeable (I've owned a Sargent and a Saddlemen).

2002-2012 DL 1000 seats will interchange with 2004-2011 DL 650 and vice versa. The 650 seat is the same pan, but padding is shaped differently and it sits quite a bit lower than the 1000 seat.
2012-2016 DL 650 seats are unique to that model, won't interchange. I think I read, but cannot confirm, the 2014 DL 1000 seats are the same through 2018? But only fit the DL 1000.
