Wanted - LOW SEAT

Need to lose a bit of altitude. Happy to pay a good price for a good seat, or swap for a standard unit....

I have a low seat I am looking to swap for the standard height. Are you interested in finding out shipping costs to the US??

Hi Simon
The best Parcelforce service is about £100 (though I haven't weighed the seat yet). What any import duty etc would be I've no idea.
Not sure if I want to be bikeless while this is going on....

I agree, and with shipping being that much does not seem economic. Ah well, worth a ganders!.

Out of interest, do you have any comfort issues with the low seat? I'd rather deal with the height as it is (which is only a fairly minor issue) than get a numb butt.

Nope. Actually this is the 1st OEM BMW seat that I can ride for more than 50 miles without getting uncomfortable.

How are you finding the comfort of the low seat compared to the standard seat?

Low seat not as comfy, gone back to the original now I've lowered the bike.
