Kawasaki lowered seat

hello, has anyone put the Kawasaki lowered seat on their SX? How did you find it? Did it make much difference to the height and comfort?
Thanks.

What year? It's the same seat for the ninja as the older bikes. It lowers the 2020 bike by 28mm, but only lowers the older bikers by 8mm.

I had mine sculpted by Tony Archer as 8mm would make little difference.

Hi there …. yes I have the low seat on mine and as Nelix says it lowers seat height by 28mm. This is achieved by sculpting the front/side s so that the standover height is less e.g. doesn't splay your hips as much … Only done a few hundred miles and not a long ride yet so can't really comment on comfort just yet although no issues to report …… I have a 29" inside leg so the lower seat allows more of a ball of foot rather than tip toes …… also going to try softening suspension  :028:
