Re: Looking for a lower seat

When I bought my '02 K1200LT a few months ago the previous owner was also "inseam challenged" like I am. He had already put a Rick Meyer (or is it Mayer) seat on it which is significantly lower than the original.

Re: Looking for a lower seat

I bought and installed the BMW low seat on my 04 LT. I'm 5'8" with 28" inseam. this dropped seat hieght 2". With the rear shock preload dialed down I can flat foot with my wife on back. Beware!! the older pre 05 LT's may require some cutting of body work and old brackets off the frame. If your not up to the cutting it could be $$ at the dealer. good luck
