How do you find the lowered seat? Has it made a big difference? Has it had any effect on the comfort? Thanks

Will be going tomorrow for the first time after building her back up,ironically to look at a white 2020,and have a test ride,definitely lower,balls of both feet now planted,seat does feel a lot softer,but to be fair I never had a problem with the comfort of the original seat
Once you've had black,you'll never look back

I'm in pain after an hour. Not just looking for a rest. As after the rest my arse is begging me not to get back on the bike.

Thanks for the info. I'm just assessing the options. I have a 2019 SX. I can touch the floor but think I'd feel a bit more confident if it was slightly lower. I don't really want to have the bike lowered.
I just dont want to compromise comfort.
Enjoy the test ride on the 2020 one  :002:

OK, what I should have said is I don't want to make it even more uncomfortable!  :001:

my missus says the pillion seat  needs to be a couple of inches wider as the edges dig in
and she has a fat arse

our last tourer the gtr1400 seat was perfect for both of us

shame the bike was too heavy
