Well here's a start for you. Lots of Seat manufactures out there. Corbin, Hartco, Saddleman, Russel, Mustang, etc etc. There are also the ones out there that modify the existing.

This is the one I opted for when choosing for me. It's a Hartco- Don't leave home without it.

I too am looking for a little lower seat for my 93SE. I saw somewhere, and can't find it again, that the later model stock 1500 seats were a lower profile seat by a couple of inches. Also thinking about the Saddlemen. lowrider seat. suggestions?

Before you spend the money on a new seat, you may want to consider the services of Rick Butler in Wylie, TX. He lowered the seat on my wife's Burgman & did a great job. He charges $40.00 & you just mail him the seat. His e-mail is [email protected].

On the 98 and up GL1500's the seat narrower and lowered and gave you about 1 inch drop.
