    Wanted - S1000XR HP High Seat in UK

    Hi all

    Looking to improve the comfort of my recently purchased 2015 S1000XR as I'm 6'4 and could definitely do with a bit more height to the bike.  Seeing some of the threads on this site it looks like bar risers and a BMW HP high seat could be the answer?  Looking to make a considerable saving on the £330 that it will cost to get one from a BMW main dealer!

    Feel free to let me know if you have a really great condition one that you no longer need.

    Cheers

    Rob

    At 6’4 the HP seat will not be tall enough,I’d be looking at a custom seat, I sold my HP high seat and got lucky with a tall custom seat made be ? And i’m Well under your height.

    Thanks for the reply. “Custom” sounds like it might be getting a little pricey?! I’m only a 33” inside leg, despite my height, so hoping this may have some bearing on it but will certainly take the advice on board for sure.
