    M Sport Seat vs Low Seat

    My M Sport Low Suspension is scheduled for production but I still can change few things. When building M Sport low, you can either go with the default M Seat or change it to a low seat ($0 change). While I initially selected low seat thinking it will give me the lowest position, dealer accidentally went with the default M Seat. While I think its only a 16mm difference, is the M Seat much better than the low seat? I am only picking either of these two for now and will think about some mods or an after market one later when I get the bike.
    Thanks

    Really depends upon your HEIGHT, WEIGHT & INSEAM. I have had both seats. The low pushed me up against the XR tank. "M" was much more sport or for agressive riding. I could get my feet on the ground with both (30 inseam). Best,

    Thanks Doc. Im 29" so I think it should be more or less the same. In terms of pure comfort would you prefer one over the other? I have heard many saying the low seat is like a torture device. If M  sport seat is slightly better, I am going to tell the dealer to not to change anything.
    Thanks

    jaythedreamer,

    You are correct. the "M" Sport was more comfortable to me. Are you getting a Low or Reg height XR??

    Best,

    I booked the low suspension version. My intention with low seat was to get it maximum low. But if M seat is more comfortable I think I can adjust with the additional 16mm height. Thank you for your replies.
    Thanks

    Jay, I ordered low suspension with low seat (but not M). So you can try it when it would be here. Should be around March 20

    Hey thank you very much for the offer! Though I think by that time mine would move to status 150 and cannot change anything. Anyway I would still like to meet, please let me know when she arrives. I am gonna ask dealer to go with low if he can change.
    Thanks
    Jay
