seat height

In later years when the seat height was lowered, how was this accomplished? Was the seat adjustment changed, frame change, suspension change or something else.

Re: seat height

I don't believe it was lowered at all but BMW did offer a lowered seat option. This seat had a thinner seat pan and no adjustment bar. OK one thing they did was make the nose of the seat narrower to help shorter people slide forward and touch the ground easier. I had forgotten about that. Still the same height of 770/800 mm unladen.
