Things change and the information available on this forum as it pertains to the seat lift support is out of date. I ordered a part from Liftsupportdepot.com for my 07 burgman 400. It is no longer $22 but rather $29.50 plus $6.90 shipping. I took two calls but it did finally ship and I received it within 3 days after the second attempt. However, the supplied, attached eyelets did not fit either of the connections on the scooter. I had to use my grinder and remove metal from the eyelets. Without a grinder it would have required a lot of file work. The part number is PM1042. It is on the scooter and working but you might be better served to locate a lift rod at an local auto parts store.
