Hi Folks..... I have done a search on this and have not had much joy.... Plenty of stuff on the oem v aftermarket seats but little else.

Question.... I know most of the changes that happened from the 2003 to the 2004 bike (UK dates) but did the seat height change on the later bike.?

I had a 1999 LT and could easily get my feet flat but it still gave me the wobblies and I had to shift forward very quickly to get my balance - quite often. I read somewhere that the seat changed its profile at some stage fore this reason, Is this true and on what year?

Thanks for your help

Stuart.

The 05 saddle was narrowed at the front and a little narrowed at the rear but did not really get lowered.
BMW always offered a lowered seat as an option.

I opted for a Russel Day Long for comfort and have to remember to slide forward to plant the feet or I get a leg cramp from the width of the Russel seat.

They lowered it by taking out the padding.............. :D

The 05+ seat is narrower (and less comfortable) and easier for your feet to touch if you are height challenged.
