What seat is this?
« on: 30 November, 2018, 04:01:26 AM »
Would any of you happen to know what seat is on this bike?

Also I assume powder coating the foot rest brackets and heat shields is a better option than paint right?

Looks like the stock gel seat to me ... ?  Compare to the one on my 2011 SE.

Powder coating definitely the way to go for longevity IMO.  That is a nice, sporty looking Tiger!

Yep I think you're right!

Looks like I'm on the hunt for one.

Does anyone have a side shot of their bike or A bike with the tall seat fitted?

I never took one. Would be surprised if you could tell a difference.
Barely noticed a difference sitting on it. So little difference sold it within a couple months if that.

Only seat I hadn't tried was a Sargent, none compare to  the Russel day long for comfort or height.

The only difference I see, from the high and low seats, that I have sat on, is the seat width. The narrower ones seem to make it easier to plant your feet on the ground.

Always best to try for comfort. What seems good in the showroom, never feels the same after 4 hours or so  :003:
