Comfort Seat

Post by matgriff »

Hi, can anyone tell me if the BMW comfort seat for the 2005-2010 models is lower that the original or standard height ?


I'm looking to improve the seat on my 2005, and I've seen a couple of the genuine comfort seats, but they look lower than the original, and I need something the same, as I already have mine on the high setting, as I've got long legs.


Thanks

Hi, yes the comfort seat is slightly lower than the standard height stock seat, about 20mm from memory
The GS 'is' the better bike :-)

Try a third party seat like the Corbin or Sargent seats. I've managed to pick up second hand Corbin seats for both my old 1100 and the 1200 I have now and find they're much more comfortable than the standard seats. I've heard good things about the Sargent seats as well. I haven't measured the height difference but they feel about the same.
