New seat needed
on: September 26, 2015, 09:17:02 PM
Stumpy arse like moi...
Anybody retro fitted a lowered seat and if so where did you buy it from and what difference has it made to the handling, better / worse?
Seen some for sale in France but a bit cautious!
Should I  :435:?

Hi Sharkee,

Honda do a low seat for about £120. Can get it from Cox Honda with a 10% discount.

I'll be looking for this option if I get the C/T. Do you have this seat on your bike ?, and is it all day comfortable ?

I have low seat fitted for two years, helps with short leg maneuvers but gives numb arse after couple of hours.

As Pete said really.  I bought it for better comfort rather than height issue. I did find it a lot better than the standard seat. Recently bought a standard height Touratech seat which I think is the best solution for me.
