I have an 07 DL 650. I have been riding with the stock seat but I sent that off to go to Russell. In the meantime, I was able to buy a DL1000 seat to use while my stock gets re-done at Russell. Anyway the suspension seems to be a bit harsher with the 1000 seat. Any reasons why? I was having Russell raise my 650 seat a little to get more leg room. Now I am wondering if thats a good move. Maybe its all in my head but just doing my morning commute to work over the same bumps it didnt feel as smooth. I cant see how an inch higher would change anything.
