I remember having a bookmark to an aftermarket strut supplier, but it might have
been for a Geo Metro hatchback. Unfortunately, I am prone to periodic bookmark
purging.

In any case, my searches on this forum are currently fruitless.

I have two 2003 Burgman 400s that are in need of new seat suspension.

Am I mistaken that other than stock is the way to go?

Thank you.

Check
LiftSupportDepot
http://www.autopartsbylou.com

If you cannot find the correct cylinder on the website,
don't be afraid to call them on the phone...
they have already helped several Burgman riders
solve their seat lift cylinder issues.

I just got one for my 08 from them. They were very helpful on the phone and it was delivered quickly. Works perfectly.

LiftSupportDepot offers a cylinder that fits perfect and has an internal pressure of 45psi. Their part number for it is SE130P45E32/60021E32. I have a "home made" back rest, similar it style (and, probably weight, as well) as the modified Isuzu headrests that are used. With the 45psi unit, I must lift the seat but, it stays wherever I put it. If I did not have the back rest on, it is possible the seat may open on its own, once unlatched. They also have a 55psi unit.

Wait.

How come when I go to the website, stick in 20 inches for the
"Commercial, Industrial,
Tonneau covers, Campers:" window, (they don't seem to have another option),
I NEVER find the part # 60021.......?

Would this guy likely work?

(Mine is actually stock, but my gf has a backrest that weighs a bunch.)

Again, thank you folks.

NOPE...that cylinder has ball-end fittings...
like used on a hatch-back window.
You need a cylinder that has ring ends.
Call'em......they got the right cylinder...
give'em a chance to find it for you.
A lot less hassle than trying to change end fittings.

Okay. Sounds like a good idea.
So what info do I need for them in order to settle
on the perfect damper strut? And is a bit more resistance
better? My gf has a backrest mounted. I do not, will not.

Thank you and everyone else for your efforts.
