    Default 620/695 Monster seat wanted

    620/695 Monster seat wanted, will consider any condition as long as all parts for connecting to the bike are present.

    No Derek, being a short a*se I've been finding the S2R a wee bit tall. I believe the 620/695 seat is a bit lower and fits the S2R. Doesn't help that the rear end was jacked up a bit by the previous owner.

    You could jack the rear end down again and drop the yokes through the forks to maintain the geometry. This will lower the whole bike but at the expense of ground clearance which may or may not be a problem depending on how you ride.

    You can drop the rear end by shortening the tie bar. It has a right hand thread at the top and a left hand at the bottom. The bottom lock nut is quite hard to get at and often the threads are seized so you may have to take it off to adjust it. The adjuster moves the wheel by about 5mm per turn if I remember right.
    Measure the ride height against a reference point, like the end of the exhaust to the ground, before you start so you know how much it you have dropped it and count the turns of the tie rod so you can put it back where it was if the result isn't to your liking.
    If you want to keep the steering geometry the same, drop the yokes on the forks by the same amount that you have dropped the rear end.
