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.
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 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.

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:
