Lowest seat height for a BMW 1150 gs
« on: January 10, 2018, 10:19:02 AM »
Good Day to you all.
This is my first post so please be gentle with me!
I am looking to buy a BMW 1150 GS - just sold my 650 GS and also own a BMW 800 ST.
My question is:
What is the lowest seat ht achievable on the 1150 GS? I saw a very nice 1150 GS Adventure in Hermanus, but the seat was too high - almost 90 cms from ground to the lowest part of the riders seat. My friend here in Bettys Bay has a 1150 GS and the seat ht from ground to lowest part of seat is 80 cms - this is perfect for me. Can anyone give me further advice and options on seat ht for the 1150 GS? I think that the GS is a better option for me anyway, rather than the GS Adventure.
Many Thanks.
Mad Johnny

Hi Mad Johnny - we lower seats - a lot of seats, and re-use the same cover the seat uses, so it CAN be 'reversed' if/when selling the bike again.

Typically we can take up to 3mm (3cm) out of a 1200GS/A seat, we have taken a little more out, too, but recommend a 'defualt' of 30mm. It typically takes 24 hours from delivery to pick-up.
