Great ride!
Yes, the PO installed the seat... It is not heated, nor was it broken in at all. It felt pretty firm when I first started riding it, but by the end of the ride, it feels pretty good.

rebuilt BMWs using Wilbur's parts... They retain the BMW ESA components and mounts, but have Wilbur's shock and spring. This is a much less expensive than the Ohlin's version - theirs is a complete replacement, versus rebuild...

Not really my style to ask, but I would be very interested in finding out how much this conversion cost's? Feel free to PM me if you would rather not share on the public forum.

Thanks!
