    Comfort seat I had fitted to my 2013 F800R. This makes a surprising amount of difference to the cramped riding position. £175

    Also a GPR slip on end can. Gives a lovely little burble at low revs and a nice bark at wider throttle openings. A few marks but around half the price of a new one. £150

    Both items on eBay so you can use paypal etc.

    Just had a look at your listings - that is a standard seat, with standard height, not a comfort seat.
    I have both, there are very visual differences between the two that make them easily identifiable.

    I bought it from BMW Motorrad direct. Is there a difference between extra height and comfort seat?

    Yes, there is about 20mm height difference between the standard seat and the comfort seat. The comfort seats only came out with the GT model, prior to that we only had standard, low, and extra low, that were available for the 800Rs and 800S/STs. But all the seats will interchange between all of the models with no problem.
    I'm guessing you had one of the low seats on yours before?

    The part number on the box is also the part number for a standard seat.
    It's a bit dis-ingenuous of them to list it as a higher seat, though I suppose it IS higher than the low or extra low versions.
    This is what the higher comfort seat looks like, part number is shown there too. But you won't find it on the ST parts lists, only on the GT parts lists.

    I had the standard seat and there was certainly a visible difference between the two seats. At the time it was very noticeable too, surprisingly so, as I'd had a knee replacement and at that stage I could not bend my knee quite enough to get my foot on the leg, hence my going for this one, as it enabled me to ride the bike again. I found the delivery note in the box and BMW list as the "higher seat".

    Interestingly, if you check the specs this has the same 840mm height as the comfort seat. https://www.bmw-motorrad-bohling.com...bmw+f800r+seat
