Tall seat

5 posts in this topic

So how tall should you be to run a tall seat? Im just short of 6 ft but my legs are not really that long ( 31 inseam) I have an 06 and i am running a step seat but i dont really notice it helping and it seem like i have to work to get up on the tank. I have heard they help. Thanks for the input.

if your seat is a step seat then it dips and would thus make it harder to get really far up on the tank. try a reg height seat, possibly with a hump or something added to the back.

a tall seat would prob be too tall for you, as im 5'11 and i tried one and it was way too tall, and i have pretty long legs.

Nearest i can tell it is not shorter in the front, just taller in the back. I measured it next to the stock seat

I am 5'11" and the taller seat helped me 100% on my 06. The taller seat is flatter on top allowing you to shift your @$$ to the front of the bike with less effort....and it helps the front end bite better for better cornering. I have a tall soft compound Gutz Racing and a medum density SDG foam seat that I swap around. The SDG works better for shifting weight, the Gutz is like sitting on space foam....very very cushy on the tushy
