Lowering link for 2021 s1000r
on: May 10, 2022, 04:47:51 AM
Does anyone know of a lowering link for a 2021/22 s1000r? I have found lots for previous gen, just not for the 21/22

Thanks in advance!

I'd look into getting the seat sculpted rather than lowering. A bit of foam shaved off the sides makes a difference.

Thanks for the reply!

I actually have the BMW accessory "lower seat" which drops it .8". Do you know if that one can be further sculpted a bit? I could definitely see narrowing it having an effect though. I have a 28" inseam so I'm pretty short lol

The lower seat for the 3rd gen brings you to the same height as the 2nd gen. I have a 2nd gen, 27 inch inside leg and yes sculpting helped.

That's good news, thanks.

The lower seat is on order from germany apparently. I work for a BMW dealer on the car side of things, so that usually means it will be here in 2 days or 7 months haha. In the meantime I think I'll pull the seat cover off the standard seat and shave it down a bit.

When you say sculpt it, do you mean bring in the sides to narrow it a little bit or shave down the overall height?

I'm sure my guy did both, but sculpting the sides probably gives the best gain. It is a very light bike for a thou, tbh I've never (touch wood) had a problem.
