Improved Seat positioning
I had a new seat made for my GSA and it still had me just uncomfortable enough that I wasn't 100% with where I thought I should be for long distances. These installed in 2 minutes and the seat position improvement puts me back just enough to make it perfect.
So simple, so useful
Installed in under 2 minutes. With my 29" inseam the extra 10mm drop in seat height allows me to get my feet closer to flat on the ground. If BMW paid attention they'd include these as part of the low seat they sell. Thank you Wunderlich.
Worked as advertised
I have a 30 inch inseam and it was cutting close to be on an R1200RT with the low seat option, never mind the regular seat. The adjuster made the difference between being on my toes and being on my soles, would recommend if 3/4 of an inch up or down would make a difference to you.
Should be part of BMW's kit
Just back from a 3000 km trip after installing these. This works as promised ~ no more sliding forward on the seat! If you slide forward on your seat do your self (and your butt) a favour and get a set! I'd give these puppies a 10 star but Wunderlich would only let me give 5 ;-)
This is as simple and straightforward as it appears, nice addition!
Brilliant little gizmo
Allowed me to rise the front of the seat ever so slightly for a perfect fit.
Helpful, and a great value
I've noticed that low OEM seats often slope forward, and my 2015 R1200GS is no exception. I'm using these to raise the front of the seat closer to level. They're working well for this purpose.
Right on the money
A simple, cheap, elegant solution for getting the perfect height on my K1600GT. I'm 6'3", 35" inseam, and have Kontour seats on the bike with +1/2" padding in the riders seat. Prior to finding these, the Kontour rider's seat put me in a slight downward angle at the front. These fixed that, and are easily rotated down if you want to push the bike in a more aggressive sitting position. Highly recommended.
At 6 foot 3 with a 34-inch inseam, this gives me just that extra bit of legroom (with dropped pegs and raised bars) to make my 1250 GSAdventure way more comfortable. It levels the seat on the high setting, rather than sloping forward. I still get both feet flat on the ground.
Surprising difference in seat comfort
From the first time I sat on my K1600B, I felt like the seat sloped forward. By raising the front of the seat it now feels level and neutral. Surprising improvement for a 2 minute project.
Totally Worth It
I am just 5'-3" with a lowered seat and this gave me a little extra purchase (and confidence) on the dirt. Happy to have the extra help!
Inexpensive solution to high seat
Works like a charm. I only wished that I had known of this before going with a low seat from BMW. Possibly could have a more cushioned seat. Only problem is that the seat slightly tilts forward causing you to slide forward. Have already recommended it to others
seat height adjustment
perfect, made a world of difference for me
Sucks to be short
Bought for my wife's 2016 R 1200 GS gave her a little extra foot on the ground she says it helps , so I guess money well spent !
Good Choice for lowering
Sometimes just a little adjustment is all you need to make you feel more stable on your bike and this is that solution.

The extra 10 mm gives my wife a measurable difference in confidence on her R1200GS.
Lower seat height
I have a 30in inseam, these off-set seat mounts lower the front of the seat that extra little bit when every little bit counts
Seat Height Adjustment
It will lower the front end of your seat, not the entire seat, meaning that you will tend to slide forward a bit. Still, happy to get the extra 1 cm so I can plant both feet more securely when I need to. Also, pay attention that the grommets do not twist too much when placing the seat back on or it may negate some of the seat lowering or raising desired. Overall, it's an ingenious perk to give that little bit of extra needed. Thanks, Wunderlich.
Not As Good As Hoped...

I love Wunderlich products and the folks at Wunderlich America, in CA, are the best! I bought (2) sets of these. One for my '15 GS and one for my '17 RT. I've only installed them on my '17 RT at this point. Here's what I found... If you rotate the Seat Height Adjusters to the point that puts the seat in the lowest position, you end up with a large gap between your seat and your tank. Not a good look! I moved the "eccentric" to various positions, in an attempt to get an acceptible gap between the seat and the tank. When I found the "sweet spot" it only lowered the seat 3/16" or 4.76mm, which is about 50% of what I was hoping for. Every little bit helps, but 4.76mm is such a small amount, I honestly cannot feel/tell any perceivable difference. I've yet to install the second set on my '15 GS. Hoping I'll be able to get the full 10mm without creating a large gap between the seat and the gas tank. I'll update this review if I succeed. Hope this helps!
worth Having it
I installed this on my 2015 R1200GSA. I am not a tall rider and every little bit helps. This just works; its very easy to install. You may have to push harder to snap the seat in place. It tilts the seat a bit but does not cause discomfort. It will definitely helps off road.
Seat Height Adjustment Set
Mark A Jones
I have only used the seat height adjustment set for two rides but there is a noticeable difference. I have them set to raise the front of my seat all they way up. It sits me further back into the seat and eliminated the one hot spot I had. Pretty significant results for a 10 mm (.4 inch) raise. Prevented me from buying a new seat that would have costed several hundred dollars.
Seat Height Adjustment
This is possibly one of the best products that I have purchased from Wunderlich. I a short fellow so seat height is critical for me. This simple changeout gave me that extra .4" lowering that I am totally happy with. For $38 it's a no brainer. Try putting a set of Ohlins on for a mere $1800 and finding out they didn't lower one of my older RT's. Again, this is a great product!
More options for adjustment to get it just right
Simple and effective method of adjusting the seat height.
My seat needed the backside on low and the front on high. This product allowed a bit more height for a better feel.
Works well on my R1200RT
This worked as promised on my 2017 R1200RT with the low seat. Very easy to install. The grommet change was a small (.4"), but worthwhile improvement to lower the seatwhich was helpful. However, by lowering the front of the seat, the slight tilting down results in tendency to slide forward toward the tank.
It works well
It works well but sometime it turns when you push the seat in to position. Some color option will be great.
