    2020 950S Can the stock seat be lowered per the manual?

    I'm a little confused on this. The manual for the 2020 950S on page 294 shows that the standard seat height can be lowered, but I see no mention of this on the forums or anywhere else online. I don't have the plastic "skirt/spacer" either that the manual mentions. Logic says that since the seat bolts in on the sides, you could not lower the seat because the holes won't line up.

    I know there's a lower seat sold so I'm assuming the manual is incorrect and the seat cannot be lowered on the 950S?

    What am I missing here?

    You are not missing anything. It had me wondering too. I guess it's a copy and paste error from the 1200 manual  :034:

    Thank you for your reply. I did notice the 1200 parts fiche showed the plastic spacer and what not.

    This is indeed an error in the manual.

    FYI for anyone else reading this .. the 2022 V2S does use the same seat as the 1260 but is supplied without seat spacers. You can buy them easily enough and adjust your seat higher if needed.

    I have a very little used low seat for my 69 plate 950s which I purchased recently. Its available if it helps you out. £120. PM me if youíre interested and Iíll send photos. Iím near Coventry for collection.
