    Is there a "Regular" seat?

    Hi Hi,

    My 2014 TTSE came with a "Comfort Low" seat, which seems to be what literally every bike has.  I've bumped the mount to the higher setting, but another 1/2" or so would be nice.

    So, is there a "Regular" seat that everyone has swapped out that I should be looking for at garage sales, or is "Comfort Low" what came from the factory?  My bike doesn't have the heated seats package if that makes a difference.

    Figure I should ask before looking at custom saddles.

    Thanks very much!
    /Kris

      There are / were LOTS of different seats for the Trophy !

      The challenge now will be to find the one you want.

      For a reason known only to Triumph, the US Export model of Trophy was shipped with the "Low" Seat as standard,
      while the UK, Europe and Rest of the World had the "Standard seat as, err - Standard !

      Here is a list from an old Topic showing some of the Part Numbers,
      although some of those number may have changed since ...

      * Standard Seat ( Europe) - Part No. T2305020. ( Low = 800mm / 31.5" High = 820mm / 32.3" )
      * Standard Heated Seat    - Part No. A9708259. ( Low = 805mm / 31.7" High = 825mm / 32.5" )

      * Comfort Seat                 - Part No T2308262.  ( Low = 805mm / 31.7" High = 825mm / 32.5" )

      * Low Rider Seat ( US )   - Part No T2308261. ( Low = 775mm / 30.5" / High = 795mm / 31.3" )
      * Low Rider Heated Seat  - Part No A9708276. ( Low = 775mm / 30.5" / High = 795mm / 31.3" )


    As you can see the "Standard" Seat variant adds an Inch, compared to the "Low" version,
    or a little under an inch to the "Comfort" version.

    Cheers  :821:

    After a recent long ride, I've been looking at seat options, including factory.  Maybe I'm a bit tired, but I'm not sure this list and the list of accessories in another post match...


    Factory seats and part numbers

    Heated Rider Seat                          A9708350
    Heated Rider Seat ( 3D Net )          A9708259
    Heated Low Rider Seat                   A9708351
    Heated Low Rider Seat ( 3D Net )   A9708276
    Heated Pillion Seat                          A9708260
    Rider Comfort Seat                          T2308262
    Passenger Comfort Seat                  T2308266
    Low Rider Seat                                T2304486 - From above - Low Rider Seat ( US )   - Part No T2308261
    Standard Rider Seat                          T2304485 - From above - Standard Seat ( Europe) - Part No. T2305020

    Also, I've seen this reference to 3D net, but can't seem to find a website, what is this company and how are their seats different / better than these other seats?

    Thanks!
    Brian

    "3D Net" is a description of those versions of genuine
    Triumph seat that incorporate an integral 3D net comfort pad.

    With regards Part Numbers I would refer you to comments in my post that you quoted :

    Here is a list from an old Topic showing some of the Part Numbers,
    although some of those number may have changed since ...

    Other options to consider are after market seat "toppers" such as Air or Gell cushions.

    You might also consider reworked seat options from the likes of Russell Day Long / Corbin etc.

    Cheers  :821:

    Allow me to recommend - https://airhawk.net/product-category/seat-cushions/
    These will give you a small lift up, improve rump comfort, and are quite durable.
    And, they are affordable! I have used the "Cruiser R Large".

    A pad like an Airhawk, or a gel pad or even Alaska Leather sheepskin will add some comfort. Going the Russell Day-Long route is the Cadillac route - a completely remade seat with extra support. That's the route I went, and while it's expensive it's amazing the difference it makes. https://day-long.com - you send them your seat and they send back the rebuild.

    my new to me 2013 ttse came with the standard non heated seat not the low seat. Before I bought mine I test road several trophy's and both had the low seat which was terrible with my 34 inch inseam. I agree that a russell day long is the cadillac as I've had several on different bikes in the past but for right now the standard seat is about an inch higher and is a flatter contour and its not bad. Several triumph parts online places like Hermy's and Engle's still show them as avialable. But if you have the means a russell is the way to go.
