Insurance cost for the 09?

Anyone that has bought or serious about getting a FZ09 care to comment on insurance cost for it?

Seen on a FZ09-specific site that people are seeing a higher than anticipated insurance cost.

Optional low seat?

Has anyone fitted Yamaha's "low" seat on the S10 yet? If so, does it make much of a difference?

With a 30" inseam, the seat height of the bike is of some concern.
