    BMW S1000 XR comfort seat

    Anyone had any experience with the BMW "comfort seat for the S1000XR? A great item or just another 2x4 to sit on?

    Can't speak on the XR, but the R and RR comfort seat is way better than the stock seat so I would imagine that the XR's comfort seat would be just as comfortable. Only issue is price, you could grab a saddleman or sargent seat for less than the factory comfort seat. Only reason imo to go factory seat is you want to roll the price into your loan.

    I have the High HP Sport Seat (77 34 7 717 180). Not sure if that's what's being referred to as the "comfort" seat. I didn't find the stock seat all that uncomfortable, but I just bought my new S1000XR and have not had anything resembling a long ride on it yet. When buying it, I bought the High HP Sport Seat. I did this because it is taller (33.7") than the stock seat (33.1") and I'll take every bit of leg room I can get. I have not tried a Sargent, but I note that according to Sargent's website, their performance plus and sport performance offerings (http://www.sargentcycle.com/Seats-Ac...t-BMW-S1000XR/ and http://www.sargentcycle.com/Seats-Ac...t-BMW-S1000XR/) are still shorter (33.53") than the High HP Sport Seat. That aside, I had a Sargent Solo on my last bike and it was an excellent seat for all 11 years I had it in service.

    I have put about 7,500 miles on the BMW Sport seat and very happy after a full day in the saddle. There are two versions of the sport seat model, and the High version fit me better. http://parts.bmwmotorcycles.com/p/BM...347717180.html
