Smile K1200LT Heated Seat -- What year does it fit?

Hi guys,

I have a new K1200LT Heated Seat but I ride an R1150R. So, I have a some decisions to make...

Try to make the seat fit on my 1150R,

Buy the rest of the KLT to match the seat,

Sell the seat

Now, since I have a wife, ex-wife, 3 kids and two dogs I think my best option is to just sell the seat .

One thing I can't figure out though is the part number for this seat and which year of LT it fits. I have checked all over the internets, including online parts fiches and I can't for the life of me figure out the part number.

As you can see in the pics below, there is a series of white numbers on the bottom of the seat. In my infinite wisdom I assumed this was the part number but you see where that got me.












Now, the 1st digit is hard to read in a pic but it is a "2". Then there is also a big "5" written before the series of numbers.

The series of numbers are: 23471440314

If I include the "5", then it is: 523471440314

Even if I include the "dash", I end up with either: 2347144-0314 or 52347144-0314

None of those number combinations have worked

There are no other numbers anywhere on the seat either painted on or molded in.

Could you guys please give me some guidance here?

From one BMW guy to another.... I would appreciate it very much.

I think that would look great on your R .

Mount it up and send some pix.

You've got a 99-04 seat missing the metal hi/low position rod on the bottom. Without the rod it can only be mounted in the low position, it will rub on the frame and be a little wobbly without it.

Ron,

I just checked out your Kontourseat website. Very nice! Do you do R1150R seats?

Anyway, you are obviously a man who knows his seats. I think I already know the answer but do you think there is any chance that this seat would fit on an '05 LT?

Thanks again!

John

Looks like a 99-04 optional low seat as they had no adjustment bar and too thin padding . It will fit on 99-04 bikes with a little body plastic and metal bracket cutting and 05 on just bolt on and go .

Yes, this looks like the factory lowered seat that was optional. Uncomfortable as can be for a long ride without additional padding. The do seem to command more money in resale than the standard seat as it's a better fit for shorter riders.
