I am selling a Saddlemen Adventure Tour Seat (2 piece) on Ebay if anyone is interested.  The part number appears to indicate that it will fit everything from a 2012 to a 2017 TEX 1200.  I can only assure that it will fit a 2012 to 2015 which it is installed on now.  It is very comfortable, much better than the stock, however I need a lower seat, this is approximately 3/4 to 1 inch higher than the stock seat.

I will only ship to continental US.

You mentioned it's up to an inch taller.  What about positioning? My stock 2017 likes to push me into the tank unless I set the front adjuster to the tall setting and the back adjuster to the short setting.

Also, does anyone here have one of these on a 2016-2017?

Thanks!

I have read others who do the same thing you do, however I do not and have not shared your experience.

I used my stock seat and the Saddlemen seat with both front and back pins in the upper position, giving me the lowest seat position front and rear.

I put the bike on the centerstand and put a level accross each seat at the point I sit and compared the distance to the ground.  The Saddlemen was between .75 and 1.00 inches higher than the stock seat.

Any interest in a trade for a Russell Day Long?

The Saddlemen Adventure Tour Seat has been swapped for a different seat with a new friend on the forum.

Thanks everyone for your consideration.

Ride Safe.
