Any opinions on the worth of installing the low seat on a 1050 Tiger ? $229 US seems like a lot for 20mm less height. Better alternatives ?

Hi Mate,

Welcome to the forum :)

A few previous posts on this came up with wear platform shoes or high heels - you suite them :D

Most comments I have read on the tiger1050.com forum say the "lower seat" is really not any lower and a waste of money. There are lowering plates available from various vendors that will lower the 1050 1.5 inches. If the front forks are raised in the triple clamps about 18 mm when the lowering plates are installed, the ride is supposed to be about the same as stock from a steering stand-point.

I have mine lowered with lowering plates and I am very satisfied with the result.
