Low Seat KTM 950

Any one know of a good long distance comfortable low seat for the 950 other than the tourtech one? Is there possibly a European model that we can get here in the US?

Thanks

Corbin

My Corbin is quite low compared to the Stock. Once my Renazco arrives, I won't need my Corbin anymore... Anyone interested, I'll let it go at a good price?

What is a good price? Corbins have a tendancy to be kinda hard.

When I put a Corbin on my R100GS my first impression was that it was too square and too hard.

That impression changed when I found I could do 800+ mile days without squirming. It remains the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden on.

The Corbin on my 950 is not in that same class, but is MUCH more comfortable than the stocker, and works better for me than a Bojangles I tried for one trip.

MotoTodd bought my R100GS so maybe he can comment on the saddle.

Corbin Price

I think $150 is a pretty killer price for my Corbin. What say you? I think I'll post in the Flea Market with some pics soon.

Wink Mayer Cycles Seats Rock!

Very Comfortable- for both riders, and the weaved material breathes well.

Rick Mayer or Bill Mayer seat?

Is that a Rick Mayer or Bill Mayer? Because I have a Bill Mayer Saddle and I am not happy with it at all. I even asked for a refund with no luck. I should have gone to Rick and may do it soon. I don't think a Corbin will work for me either, Mike Corbin is a great guy and they do great stuff but I can't do the foam they ues. Bony ass syndrome. Well either way that seat looks really nice I bet it is a Rick Mayer

You bet it's a Rick Mayer Seat...worth the wait & $$$

The stepped "King & Queen" effect really helps keep you forward, yet is super comfortable for LONG Rides.

Guys, to re-birth an old thread for a short-guy..

What is the difference between the OEM saddle heigh on a 950 Adv and a Corbin-low?

Any other Low seat makers? I was surprised that Sargent didn't make one (or at least they don't show one).

I have a 30" inseam and think the KTM Hardparts Low gel seat is very good, and relatively inexpensive iirc. For a long trip, I complement it with an Aerostitch lambskin, but any short nap one would work. I don't use it all the time; what I do is alternate at gas stops between using it and not. I find the "difference" between the two works pretty well to keep things comfortable.

Mr Barlow,
Do you know the height difference? I have a 28" inseam and am looking for the lowest seat out there so I don't have to mod the suspension.

+1, 30" inseam here too, except I use the Alaska Leather sheepskin with the low seat for the long rides.
