Re: used Mayer seat for sale

Thanks for posting this. I pulled the trigger on buying this not being sure if the seller would ship to the U.S., but I'm happy to take my chances. I'm probably thinking with my butt, as usual.

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

no worries glad to help, your freight will be about $100.00. 5 years ago my seat was $110 each way to send across to Russell seats in the US,

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

Since it's a Rick Mayer seat, is the seller going to wait 3 months to ship it?

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

Hi all,
I guess my main concern is, are the front seats on the earlier and later models interchangable? This is from a 2002 and I have a 2005. Someone like to chime in?

I have an earlier BMS saddle on my 05 LT, it wont fit as is, I had to trim a couple spots on the bottom of the pan with my Dumor for it to sit properly, no problem making it fit perfectly with a few minutes time of marking and cutting/grinding on the plastic pan.

You don't have to do anything to the bike, just a couple high spots on the underside pan.

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

Yeah Brian you could have made it fit, I put this up for you guys being in Oz but you are to bloody slow, it was sold back overseas which I did not expect to happen.

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

I bit the bullet and despite the high shipping I think I'm still getting a pretty fair deal. These seats aren't being made anymore and I might have waited til never to be able to grab one. I'll likely put my OEM seats up on the forum's classified section. My 2002 came with the low seat, I currently have the higher seat onboard. I'm hoping that I don't lose much (if any) height with the Rick Mayer seat. I'm 6'2" and the stock seat fits me pretty well. Thanks again Linton for the lead on the seat!

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

the seat will be higher, but at your height you should be ok , like me, you have to learn to slide forward on the seat just before your feet go down, the wings on the rear sides are what stop short legged folks like from touching the ground. sliding forward will come natural after a while, you wont notice that it's happening

Yessir... Just poking a little fun. Rick Meyer was notorious for taking $, and then not shipping seats for months on end. That's pretty much what drove him out of business...

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

funny, I had that on my "watch" list on fleabay but didn't get notified it was ending.... not that I would have bought, already got my RM. But $250 is way damn cheaper than the roughly $750 it cost me about 5 or 6 years ago.
And Rick was pretty hard to deal with back then too.... sorry ya missed out Brian, thought you were happy with your comfort seat?

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

Chris,
I am happy, but thought for $250, it was worth seeing if I could be happier.
My thoughts were, have the original seat for day to day commuting, ease of stop starting motoring, and fit the Mayer when heading off on long trips.
If it did not work out, put it back up on ebay.

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

Brian/Chris,

If it turns out I don't like the seat, maybe we can set a record for how many times it can travel between the States and Oz?

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

Pete, I reckon the cheapest way out of this for you is to let Brian have it first, then tell you how much you'd hate it... saving you all that worry plus the freight costs from OZ in the first place...

BTW, it looks exactly like mine (which Brian has ridden)...

Re: used Mayer seat for sale

If a Corbin setup appeals to you, eBay in the U.S. has what looks to be a nice setup with both seats heated. Starting price is U.S. $550.

The item # is 301739993665

Thanks for the support, I am actually on the wagon at the moment.

That is a bit rich for something I may not like.
