1998 K1200RS seat question

Hi all!!
I am a new member that just purchased a used 1998 K1200RS. I had a 1992 K75 before this baby but desired a larger, more powerful ride.
This K had not beeen well cared for and one thing I want to replace rapidly is the heavily cracked seat. It is not comfortable because of the cracks and looks ugly.
I have seen seats all around for sale used. Now the newbie question.
What year seats will fit my 1998? I have seen a Sargent off a 2003 for sale and this made me wonder, plus I have seen many stock ones from many years for sale. What can I just slide on/
Thanks in advance.

All K-bike seats from '98 to '04 are interchangeable. For me, the stock seat was not tolerable, others will not agree. You will have to find this out for yourself.
You can get a almost new stock seat for under $100.00 on eBay, or this and other BMW sites.
The Sargent is a very good seat.

I took my old seat in to a local and it redone for a couple hundred, added padding when i wanted and took some out in another.Also as an option is a factory "short " seat if your legs are a tad on the challanged side.

Welcome on board. Seats are easy and well worth what you spend. You can spend a whole lot- but also as mentioned above- there are many skilled local guys who will not only fix the cover, but make the foam part just like you like it. Ask around. These guys are not that hard to find. Start with any local independent bike shop- especially custom shops.

enjoy
