DL1000 and DL650 seats -- Are they interchangeable?

I have 2012 DL650. While I find the stock seat comfortable enough as far as it goes, I wish it were a little taller. I'm 5'11", have a 32" inseam, but have had a knee replacement and lost some range of motion in my right knee. My knees are a little too "scrunched" up. An inch or 2 of added seat height might help.

Does anyone know how much taller the DL1000 seat would be and is it transferable to the Wee?

2012 and newer DL650s can't use any other V-strom model seats.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

You might be better off with Rich's peg lowering kit. If that's not enough the Suzuki Gel seat adds another inch. I have both and have a 33-34" inseam.

Peg lowering kit

Good idea! Makes much more sense to spend $50 lowering the pegs than $200 on a new seat. I'll look into it.
