Please be seated...

As I mentioned in my introduction post, we did a good deal of upgrades to our 2012 Versys including buying a brand new Kawasaki low gel seat. I had to order it from Canada as it was not available here in the states.

As it turns out we opted for the lowering link instead so I have a brand new, never-used seat I will be posting on the "For Sale" shortly.

Thanks. I'm hoping so.
It was a bit of a hassle to get one and now it's just sitting in the box.

How much did it set you back ?

Everything included (duty, taxes, shipping ...) ?

I hate to admit it...but it was close to $700.
I'm going to sell it for CONSIDERABLY less though.

Interesting, it looks like it's just the stock seat with the foam removed and a gel pad placed in instead. I wonder how hard that would be to do yourself to a stock seat?

Yeah, I'm having problems with the sliding forward thing.

Good question. I would imagine yes. I just PayPal'd my friend in Canada what he paid for it plus shipping to get it down here.
