OEM seat question...

Are there 3 different OEM seats for the v2, or is there just a "low" or "high" seat option?

post a pic. Likely if you didn't pay for the low you got the standard.

low regular high

These are OEM high (45100-31J60-AR8 ) and low (45100-31J50-AR8 ) seats. The regular seat got only 31J stamped. These part numbers are for the grey seat.

Robdek compared high and regular in his post https://www.stromtrooper.com/2653977-post1.html

Bville-Bud I don't have a pic I can post right now...

But judging by the pics that York posted, I think mine is the standard seat.

So now I've gotta decide if I wanna try the tall seat for $200 or shell out 400 to 500 bucks for a custom. I'm 6'4" so I could benefit from a little room between the seat and pegs...

I'm out of my league here, but isn't it possible to set the sag to make it a little taller?

Hello, what do you think of the seat, I think it is very rough and that irritates the skin of the buttocks.

I'm enjoying a tall seat and Adventure Tech's peg lowering bracket. On the long rides, I'll toss on the Airhawk R, which gives just a touch more height and distributes the pressure for butt happiness.


Bville - a taller seat is generally desired to provide more distance between the pegs and seat for those with longer legs (less knee bend angle). Adjusting sag won't change this geometry.



edit: 6'1" with 34" inseam.

I'm 6'3", and the tall seat makes the bike so much more comfortable. Other bikes that used to feel 'fine', now feel very cramped.
