Short Guy problems

Hi Everyone!

I need a medium seat for my 2018 Adventure Sports. I have the standard seat (too tall) and the low seat (too low) need the medium seat (just right) but I'm finding out it's not available through USA Honda dealers. I was informed by Revzilla today that I can't buy one over seas and have it shipped to the us. Is this accurate?

If anyone has one I'm a buyer!

Thank you,

Maybe look into getting something like a Seat Concepts cover/foam only. Not sure the height on those but at least you don't have to buy another seat and it might be more comfortable...

Try Rugged Roads in the UK. They stock the medium seat and ship overseas.

Iím in the UK but sure you could do the same as this - Take standard seat to a specialist and get them to remove the correct amount of foam from the seat and put cover back on. Very easy and inexpensive fix for you

I bought a medium seat for my new ATAS thinking I would need it but I've decided to stay with the standard seat in the low position. I bought it from Rugged Roads and its unused and still in its plastic bag. If you want to make me a reasonable offer, then please send me a private message

RG, If you gave your location it might be a bit easier to make suggestions. I had my seat redone in Albany, Oregon.

I just put the Seat Concepts Comfort seat on my ATAS. It is one inch lower than stock and run it in the standard position, so that makes it .2 inches lower than the stock seat in the low position. I tried out the low seat on the bike and that was way too low. Now if I want to put a set of beads or an AirHawk cushion I will run it in the low position and raise up a bit. I did a 780 mile ride last week and it was much more comforatable than the 860 mile ride a few weeks before on the stock seat.
