Have seen a lot of low seats on the market.
Is this due to not enough spounge as this is the only way Suzuki could lower the seat.
Any idea's as I'm on the short side but think the standard seat is comforable.

I don't have experience with the Suzuki low seat but have read that they are uncomfortable. I am on the short side also (30in inseam) and had a custom seat made using the original seat pan. It lowered me about an inch and has worked out well. Cost $400, about the same (or less) than many of the aftermarket seats, but customized for me. If you have an MC seat person in your area, it might be something to consider.

Hey Harry

Can highly recommend MJM in Goulburn.:yesnod:
He did GotaV2's seat, which was the factory low seat but was like a brick.
After she got it back she finds it super comfy.:thumbup:



Cheers

I too can recommend MJM in Goulburn.

I loved the seat on my Wee but truly hated the V2 seat, MJM was great to deal with and the results were perfect.

He has spare seats so you can stay on the road while weaves his magic.

Many people find the distance between the seat and the pegs on a Strom is short, going to a low seat makes that even worse so you may want to consider a peg lowering kit too.

Some find just taking the rubber bumpers off the stock seat pan gives them what they need, have you tried that ?

I dropped the front of my Wee 10mm to speed up the steering and there was the added benefit of being able to get a firm grip on the ground (until I put the 1" lift under the back)

Thanks guys
Yes have a MJM on my Griso who's pillon seat was a torture chamber for Leanne.
Might try the rubber bumpers and see how that goes.
Yes didn't want my legs any more cramped up, getting older.

I have the low seat. Yep, it is a bit harder and not as comfy but does make a difference when you are pushing around or taking off.

Thanks Mick
I don't mind the standard so, I"ll give it a miss.
Looked at the rubbers and they look like I can cut in half easier enough.
Looking at lower footpegs for the knees as well.

Hi all
Revisited
Bought a low seat after all, right knee issue after swing backwards down hill then up hill in my drive way for years.
Flat block is my retirement home.
Anyway has helped, knee on mend, but.
As soon as I said it I knew I I was in trouble.
Said to Leanne the low seat will help, and I'll keep the standard for when we go for a ride together.
No issue there, what came out of my mouth.
When you are on the back the extra weight makes the rear end go down so I can get both feet on the ground.
Man if looks could kill, and I had no way out, I tried but I just had to shut up. :grin2:
