Need to Raise seat on R1200CL

I am tall at 6'4" and I need to raise the seat on the R1200CL. I was thinking of having it built up with more padding. Has anyone done this or had a seat built up on another bike? I need a good source to have the seat done.

russell seat experience

Russellday-long built a seat for my 03 CLC. Four days after I installed it I trashed the bike. Returned seat to russell and they transfered seat to the new 04 CL and raised it about 1.5 inch. It really helped my seating position. I had a 21in. CeeBailey shield On the 03 and it was to high. 19 in version allowed me to look over the top.
If I decide to change the seat on my LT i would not hesitate to let Russell have my business. They built a perfect Seat for me.
