So Rosskko, do you have different height platform sole riding boots for each of the different seats?

How sure are you that 'K1200' seat is from a K1200? The pan and attachment points, the deep drop of the rider's area, not to mention the narrow taper at the back, would not allow it to fit the earlier K seat cowl quite like that. Me thinks it's K1100 stuff.

K1200??? Wherever did you get that idea?
Obviously it is from a K1100LT. Embarassed

To resolve all issues...get taller...I dont have any of these issues. Laughing Just a thought...did you consider the width of relevent seats.....they may not be higher, but wider, therefore your toes end up being too short.

That is a big consideration Stan. Also the shape of the seat (round sides or square) and the tightness of your troosers.

Three views of my 83 basic...original steel base, but modified seat to suit my big bum as well as getting away from the PLANK.

Overhang....love handles?

Reminds me of bucket seats in cars....depends what size bucket you have.

Stan that's a really nice looking seat. Was it done by Garry at Metcruze?

Yes it was...process of taking a "bum print" of me and then my wife coming in to be measured up for the pillon and backrest. He had the bike for a few days and checked out what a real bike was like. At the time the Rocket 3 had just come out and he waiting for his to turn up. Have you had any dealings with him?
