zx14 seat on a 2011 C-14 ?
« on: March 01, 2017, 04:21:28 pm »
Hello all,
                I am a proud new owner of a 2011 C-14 and  so far I love the bike immensely. I found this site first and because of all of the positive things current owners have said about the Connie, it compelled me to become and owner. So glad I found you guy's. Wealth of info without the usual arrogance of sites like these. I do have a question that I am sure has been replayed countless times, but, I can't seem to locate it in a thread. Will a ZX or ZZ 1400 seat fit my bike without modification? Am I also correct in thinking it should be roughly 1" lower than my current OEM seat? Any and all info will be greatly appreciated. Be safe out there my new family....... Steimi

Yes, a ZX-14 seat will fit the C14 without mods.  I have a picture of my 08 ZX seat on my 08 C14 somewhere, let me dig it up.  The ZX seat is about an inch or so lower than the OEM C14 seat.

Fantastic! That will be a great alternative to buying an aftermarket saddle for the height implications. Thank you for the info and the photos JWH truly appreciated. Looks great by the way.

A word of warning.  The ZX-14 seat is rock hard.  Works well for spirited riding but when I am riding my ZX for any length of time, I take my Laam seat off the C14 and put it on the ZX.  Also fits perfectly and is 100X more comfortable.

Good to know. I plan on using the ZX seat in place of my OEM while I ship it down to Laam for a little cut down. I should have said that in my previous post.

You'll love the Laam seat!  Not only comfortable but looks great!
