Seat Height Reduction
on: July 22, 2020, 07:02:47 PM
Has anybody seen / ordered / ridden a F900XR with the lower suspension to give a lower seat height ?
Does it feel 20mm lower ?  Does the suspension still give a comfortable ride ?  Does the side stand work better ?

Hi

Just took delivery yesterday of my F900 XR TE. I have a low suspension and low seat height so now just 775. Feels great albeit that the seat is a little hard. This is more that compensated but the natural padding that I have in the rear end☺️
Loving the bike. Been out twice and feeling confident despite me being an old 57 year old female who is only 5ft 3.
Had a few issue getting the bike but finally has now arrived.
Just ordered a rear hugger so looking forward to that arriving so my big brother can come over and fit it for me

When did you order?
Dealer is telling me 2-4 weeks.

Hi  :002: Is the rear hugger  Bmw or  aftermarket? I have found one on aliexress but am a bit hesitant about the fitting.
As for the lower seat, Im pretty sure planks arent quite so hard   :008:

Thanks for the feedback.
I'm a good bit taller than you but the comfort seat puts the seat height back to the standard 825mm.
Hopefully the comfort seat will be comfortable .....
