On the topic of, is the gel seat taller than the OEM 650 seat?

I think the gel seat is the same height as the 1000 seat...so yes, slighty higher...and a little better seating position.

Scarlot has the gel seat, so if you come by Firedog's, give his a try.

Mine came in a Suzuki box... so that suggests...

I remember reading that the folks that show up at rallies to add gel inserts to your seat are the same folks that make it for Suzuki - Saddleman was the name given to me.

For those interested, I'll have one for sale soon.

Take care,

Yeah I really don't think it's made by Corbin. It's a really nice seat for the money though, except for how hot it gets if you leave it out in the sun.

It's a shitload taller than the stock seats. Because of its width, it acts like it is about an inch taller than the stock DL1000 seat.

I keep a low Wee seat on my DL1000 for riding around the area and put the gel seat on when I'm going somewhere more than 100 miles away. I can put both feet on the ground with the Wee seat and only one with the gel seat.

The gel seat, unlike all of the stock seats, does not put my private parts to sleep in 20 miles.

Kind of off topic as well, but I was wondering if anyone had a comparison between Sargent and the gel seat... I will be getting a seat, but I don't know which one... I'm 6-4 34 inseam 240... the stock seat hurts...
