Lower seat for 98 BMW F650

Looking to get a lowered seat for my funduro. Its up in age now so parts seem hard to find. Anyone know where I can get a lowered seat for 1998 BMW F650? My wife is riding it and its just a tad too high.

I also need an ultra low seat for an 01 650 Dakar, for my wife. They seem to be pretty much impossible to come by so I'm going to take the stocker to an upholstery shop and have it shaved as low as possible and recovered. It's like the only way...

I bet your Dakar is alot taller too than my funduro.
I will have to check on on having it redone. I think mine is a sergeant seat too.

The Seargent seat could be a big part of her problem. They tend to ad width and height over stock. The extra width will make it difficult for you wife's legs to reach straight down to the ground. Perhaps you can find someone in your area with the same bike that will allow you to try on their stock seat for a test fit? If all you need is a stock seat I'd bet you could easily negotiate a trade for your Seargent in the Flea Market.
