Best place to buy a Suzuki gel seat?

Where the best place (cheapest) to buy a suzuki gel seat for my Strom? Oneida Suzuki has them on their web site for $160 + shipping. Anyone know of a better source?

Alternatively, if someone has a used one they want to sell me, send a PM. Thanks. :mod_biggrin:

You'll occasionally see them for sale here on the board, but Oneida seems to be the one of the better places otherwise.

You might also see if you local shop will price-match Oneida.

Yup, $160 is a good price, as long as the shipping isn't too crazy.

I think I paid $160 delivered, for a new one, from a member here last year, which I thought was great.

The less time you search, and the more time it's on your bike, the more you'll enjoy it

You may keep a eye on E-Bay, sometimes dealers sell acc. cheap, but like others said, watch out for shipping! Cheers--BB

Gel Seat

I just brought one from Dual Sport Outlet for $169.54. The shipping was free! However they send USPS. So it took a week to receive it. Also I think they wait until they have an order to place their order with Suzuki which adds a couple of days.

I got mine new on Ebay for $167 shipped. One of the sellers will put them on sale and drop the price down from $179 to like $152'ish plus $15 shipping.

Have you tried to ask your dealer for a price?

That's what I did. Printed out the Oneida listing and took it to my dealer. Asked them if they would match or best the Oneida price. They did at $155 and no shipping charge. Very Pleased with the seat. Fits well and nice looking.
