I'm not looking forward to the single figure horsepower......

A horse has about 14hp (sad that I know that of course)

I did a post on this issue some time back. The seats work in different ways. essentially the gen 1 has two coils. On low, one heats up and on high they both heat up. Both coils just get 12v fed to them. Gen 2 onwards is different. The heat, in simple terms, is computer controlled and the whole seat works on the current being increased - kinda thing.

I fitted a gen 1 seat to a gen 2 bike after having a gel pad iinstalled and found the cables that sent higher current to the seat, pulled the pins from the connectors and re inserted them into the old plug. It does work. Not sure about fitting a gen 3 seat to agen 1 bike. Never taken one to bits, but I'd suspect that fed with the std 12 it would heat up. Can't say if you'd be able to get both high and low heat settings.

Back to original thread.....

Welcome Hotbaws. The seating position certainly helps when eating a full english. I can rest the plate against the tank and my belly  :008: :008: :467: :467: :467:

You won't have to wait for the Gen 5. The rumour is there'll be a Gymkhana version of the Gen 4. It'll come in Chestnut brown with a rough hair seat cover instead of sheepskin and extra long suspension travel to get over the jumps. The Mane problem might be the seat height though, at 19.5 hands it's suspected that some people might struggle to keep their balance when they come to a stop, not to mention getting on it. Getting off it however is likely to be a lot easier but an airbag jacket will be recommended for this task in the owners handbook. For the vertically challenged I understand there will be a low version called the Shetland. Cleaning it at the end of a long days ride in bad weather is highly likely to be a less pleasant task than normal due to warranty not covering the use of a jetwash. However this should be made easier by Mucoff who will shortly announce a special cleaner for the Gymkhana model called Mucout. Residual values are anticipated to be excellent on the top of the range Gymkhana GT Stud version, it's expected to be in great demand.
