    Did the "short seat" ever come out?

    Many onths ago there were posts indicating BMW would offer a lower seat for the GT. Just wondering if anyone knew more, or perhaps has ridden one?

    Read somewhere that it is out however the low seat disallows the seat-heat feature. This guy had I believe 29 inches inseam and said he could now flat foot.

    I just recieved a service manual on disk, and it does indeed remove the heated capability when switching to the low seat.

    You have hit the jack pot!
    Where oh where did you get the service disk.
    Been doing my own service on the R Bikes, but reluctant to open up the scooter without a manual.

    The great and wonderful ebay. I went to worldwide search for C600 and came up with it.
    It looks like it covers all 2013 models........(update....It contains 40++ US and EU version of models !!!!!)

    if you get the manual, once the disk is in you have to go to notes and find the "test" vin number to load for your bike model, then it takes a while in technical tap to search around until you get used to searching thru it.....
