I tried the "BMW Sport Rider High Seat" for the 2020 S1k and like the improvement. I changed the seat on previous Gen S1ks which helped with my long legs and 6'2'' height.

The seat is both higher and less slanted in the front. Pushes me less into the tank which I like for street riding. My legs are more relaxed now and the higher riding position is helping bike handling. You sit a touch higher and there is a little less protection from the windshield - didn't bother me. Have hopes this will help on the track with leg fatigue.

It weighs exactly 900 grams, 60 grams more than stock. It cost me $535 which is pricey. You could also get 600 gram of pure silver on the spot market for the same. Maybe I am looking at this the wrong way :)

Here are some pics to give you an idea.

Hi guys!

I would like to buy "M oil filler neck" (77319457024).
Is impossible to buy it also online!
Maybe it's not yet in production?
Anyone has news?

Thanks in advance

I'm also using the M tall seat and while pricy, for me has made a huge difference to the comfortability for longer distance road riding. I'm a long leg / shorter torso guy and the extra leg room it's generated is excellent. I also prefer the body position for bike handling and ergos.

Gotcha, I'm really wanting an M saddle, I have a saddlemans seat on my track bike and I LOVE it. This seat leaves a lot to be desired. Lol.

Many don't seem to be a fan of the harder M seat but I love it for longer road rides. Makes you sit more on your sit bones. My track bike is a bit of foam but not sitting on it too much anyway lol

The seat is a bit harder initially but they get better with time. My new tall seat has improved already. Firmer also doesn't mean it is worse on long rides. You have actually better support.

It's a bit like with education and military training - firm is desirable. You will thank it in the long run :)

Has anyone figured out how to order the M GPS Laptrigger for the S1000RR yet?

I also noticed this page: M GPS Laptrigger - 2D Debus & Diebold Meßsysteme GmbH

Is this separately available from anywhere?
