Low seats for 2012 vstrom 650

Good afternoon,

Just curious on how many were happy with the OEM low seat? If not what other options did you choose? I'm not sure if I will have to swap out or not ( test ride this weekend), but based on what I have read might have too. I usually use an "airahawk" but If I didn't what seat would be comfortable. I really want to stay away from lowering links if I can...


ride safe

I pulled the rubber blocks off the standard seat and cranked the preload up on the rear springs. Helped somewhat. The seat felt a bit loose afterwards, but no problems.
