    Low seat

    I'm after a low seat for my 2019 Crosstourer,  either Honda or Touratech. Both have stopped producing them. Willing to pay and supply standard seat in exchange. Will travel to collect or pay for courier. Thanks,

    Where are you based? Sussex Motorcycles, in Sussex, can adapt and lower the stock seat whilst adding memory foam to make it significantly more comfortable too. Cost was about £230 from memory and they will do a send it down and they'll send it back thing as well if you're too far away to ride down. If you do go in person they offer a while you wait service - takes a couple of hours. Be warned though that your initial impression of their facilities will not fill you with confidence, however the end result is impressive.

    Based in Hampshire so not far away. I’ve tried having the seat lowered but not enough. I’ve had a Crosstourer before and used the Honda low seat which was just right. thanks for the info.

    I couldn't find a lower seat for mine as I'm 5' 7" hence I went to Sussex Motorcycles to have my seat adapted - it has made quite a difference and certainly much more comfortable. Whilst it doesn't;t look much different as you look at the bike the memory foam compresses so much more that you do site noticeably lower. Cheers.

    Had my seat cut by Sussex Motorcycles last summer - I believe it cost me £150. They reduced the height by about 1 inch - I'm 5' 9"" and the height is now much more comfortable. I can't flat foot both feet but feel 100% more confident handling the weight of the beast at rest.

    As fa57pjc says, the place looks awful when you get there but they know their stuff. Would highly recommend them.
