I think its officially 33", but the stock suspension really settles under my weight. I under stand the DL650 seat is a bit lower to. I have no idea what my seat height is, haven't measured it yet. I just know I like it better than the stock one. The guy said it was a OEM gel version.
There are many DL1000s around $3 to $4,000, while I was shopping most were over 500 miles from me. Many were on the west coast. I found a 2006 DL1000 for $3700 with a few farkles like a power commander, exhaust, two seats, new tires, fresh brakes, recent chain and sprockets and OEM luggage. The only thing it really needs is fork seals. I went with it because it was an hour's drive away.
The asking prices have ranged from $3200 up to about $4500 well set up with lots of stuff on them. The one I have is not as tall as my modified DR650 with heavy springs. I easily flat foot mine with the OEM gell seat, but my inseam is 34".
My first road legal bike was a KTM 950A set up very tall, it was tall even for me. 37" seat height had me on my tip toes. Usually I only put my left foot down at stops anyway while keeping my right on the brake.
