Do I have a stock seat?

New to me 03. I rode a buddy's 04 and remember the ride height being higher. On my 03, I can *easily* flatfoot at stoplights- 5'11" ~30" inseam. The front part of the seat is perforated and the back is smooth.

It is unlike this 02 seat:

Were there options?

There are different seats available. You may have a low touring seat which is the same as the 650's stock seat. The bike may also have lowering links. Check the seat pan for a part number and measure the distance between the bolts through the dog bone shaped suspension link. It's the shiny part in the picture.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at
