Leg cramp
on: July 21, 2016, 10:06:43 AM
Hi old teach,
Yes recently moved from a cb1100 to the Crossrunner for exactly that reason, cramping. I've only had the Crossrunner for a couple of weeks, but already feels a lot more comfortable. Only problem at the moment is I tend to slide forward gradually and it becomes quite uncomfortable for obvious reasons. Looking for some advice on the solution.

Sounds like you need an aftermarket seat. I have a Top Sellerie seat on my 2011, much better than the original - a stable riding position and very comfortable.  It even looks good.

Si - does the top sellerie alter the height noticeably? They look quite flat in the pics whereas the OE seat is quite steep towards the back

I specified a lower seat height as an option, but the difference from OE seemed marginal.  It may be that a standard Sellerie could feel higher than OE, but I have no experience to back that up.

Hi,

I use an Airhawk seat, it give me a little more lift even though the air bladder is hardly filled. Also you can move it around a little to help adjust to your preference. That may help, you could get a couple of old towels and place it on the seat to get an idea if this may be a viable option....would not ride with it though  :002:

cheers,

Oldteach

i used to get it on the vfr 800 I had b4 the crossrunner - I had a gel insert fitted by a company near Brands Hatch.
Result happiness - previous platter of aches and pains disappeared :082:
Not had a problem with the CR I think so much is down to individual build / rear end shape etc
