Effects of Different Seat Heights on Rider Ergonomics !
« on: August 02, 2014, 10:43:00 am »
There are many different rider seats available for the Trophy.

Below is a list of the different Rider seats available on the Triumph Web site,
which can all be adjusted to either "Low" or "High" settings.

* 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" )


There is an excellent web site that can be used in conjunction with  this information,
where you can enter details of :

* The motorcycle you wish to check ( not limited to Triumph ! )

* Handlebar Rise / Lowering ( if altered from standard )
* Handlebar Pull Back ( if altered from standard )
* Seat Rise / Fall ( to match the various seat height options )
* Footpeg Forward / Rearward Offset ( if altered from standard )
* Footpeg Rise / Fall ( if altered from standard )

There are also options to :

* Use Metric or Imperial figures
* Show Feet on the Ground ( Graphic - showing an approximation of "Flat Footing" )
* Centre the displayed image on the Seat
* Adjust straigtness of riders arms from 50% to 100%

Rider information can be entered for :

* Height
* Inseam

A Pillion can be selected, and information entered for :

* Height
* Inseam

This information is used to calculate and graphically display the approximate Riding Position,
together with approximated knee and hip angles  ....

Useful information in advance of Buying / Test Riding a Trophy,
or if considering one of the other seat options  :028:

Thats kinda cool. I don't sit that far forward on the seat though, so it maybe a bit different for me.
Life is a limited time offer, live deliberately, ride often!!!

That is my problem as well.  My only complaint about the Trophy seat is the bifurcation.  For 40+ years I've been riding with my butt way back on the seat.  (unless of course riding with a pillion).  Ridden hundreds of thousands of miles that way and simply cannot get used to (because of the two piece Trophy seat) being forced to sit so close to the gas tank.  Wonder if anyone makes a one piece seat that will allow me to retain the heating element.

I'm sure you're aware Corbin makes a  one piece heated seat.  Of course as is it won't work through the bikes electric's.  The wiring may be able to be modified, or if one were so inclined, I wonder if the Trophy seat could be deconstructed, the heating element removed and transferred to the Corbin seat, thus retaining the bikes switching and dash display.  Shoot anything is possible with enough inclination.  I wouldn't be surprised if Corbin would do this for you if you sent the heating element.

One snag, I have a Corbin seat, and the fitment to the plastics is so much more precise then the OEM seat I don't think you could work the factory seat.  No room for fingers.

Yes but as I understand it the Corbin seat is still not flat.  The pillion seat portion is higher than the rider.  Therefore it still wouldn't suit because, when riding solo, I like to scoot my butt back well into what would be pillion territory.
