do not buy the
XH920AJ SEAT COVER KIT for your gl1200 unless you want to sit 2 1/2 inches taller oh yes 2" is really high and it is all gel good thing but if you want it cut down where your back rest will fit and your tour box will fit right no one wii do it not even saddleman
been trying for 8 weeks now with saddleman thank god for cell phones no long dist. charges bought the seat kit in may so its brand new with less than 80 miles onit
i am going to try to do it my self wish me luck unless you have a hang2 seat you want to trade for it
i will wait till the 30th to do it but i will trade it even for a old hang2 this is 160.00 down the tube if it will not cut right the seat feels good so let hope every thing gosgood it is a well made seat just to tall
the gel is a good thing but if no one will cut it down what good is it if you want to see pictures of how the back rest won't fit and how i had to shim the rear box up about a 1" email me
just don't buy the kit from saddleman and waste your money thanks for reading this i love my gl1200 100,00o miles and going great but for this seat from saddleman

Hmmm... Is this the doublesaddle kit that uses your existing pan? I bought one of those last year and it has made all the difference in if I ride the bike or not. The factory torture rack made it impossible to go more than 50 miles before both of us had to get off. With the doublesaddle kit, the bike is now an all day rider. Can't imagine what you're describing as the same kit-it didn't raise any but it is wider.
just wondering......
