Things change and the information available on this forum as it pertains to the seat lift support is out of date.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.

mrutter,

Too bad you did not scroll down a little ways down on this page before ordering -- you would have seen two pages of posts & replies regarding the "400 trunk hydraulic cyl".

On pg 2 you would have seen my March 31st post wherein I describe in detail the part number & code number. I ordered it and got the part within days and installed it without any modification - just had to borrow an extra set of hands to help me install it.

I ordered mine from them over the phone with their assistance in describing the end pieces. it fit perfectly and was less than 25 bucks...I think you got the wrong part which sucks. the guy on the phone even helped me get a cartridge that was just a tad bit stronger then stock to compensate for my added driver backrest. now when I pop the trunk it nicely lefts up by itself and is just as easy to push back down .

Mine fit perfectly and the cost was around $25, including shipping. It is slightly longer and holds the seat up a little higher (a good thing).

I tried a dowel (stick) and it was a pain. A bungee cord hooked to the seat and handle bar worked better than the stick but both methods were Mickey Mouse for me. The new lift is so much better and well worth the money.

Thanks for the info regarding using a Jeep strut for my 2007 Suzuki Burgman wornout seat strut. The part # is 55394472AA I took the ball ends off & retapped my Burgman ends .,screwed them onto the new Jeep strut & fitted it back onto the Burgman. Hey presto I just turn my key & the seat pops open more than it did originally. The part cost me £9 off U.K. Ebay. Great conversion & I thank the guy who`s idea it was for sharing.......Cheer`s from Brian of Lincolnshire U.K.

Burgman seat lift supports......

Just bought a 2013 Burgman 400 ABS. My seat support stut won't hold the seat up and I see prices all over the place for replacements.

So the question is:​

Has anybody actually bought some of the cheap 2 for $12 struts from Amazon or eBay?
If so.....did they work and how well and for how long?
Or would you recommend going with the more expensive ones?

Yes I bought those they offer on ebay. It comes with 2.sometimes it opens the seat and sometimes a slight finger lift to start and it opens. I tried to find a seller who would ship to me but it would be too much. So found on ebay. I have a 2nd as a spare.
I think around $16 shipped

Great - I've seen where folks have to file the ends down narrower and that makes it operate better. Did you find that to be true? And once the seat is up does it stay up in a breeze pretty well?

I ordered one from Amazon on sale for $10.80 and it works great. Had to unscrew the ends from the old strut and the ball ends from the new strut and swap them. But after turning the key it lifts all the way up with good energy and stays up well. The strut is from SACHS and the Part Number is SG404025 from Amazon Prime in 2 days.

I agree with OkieBart, this is the same model number I ordered; I got mine from RockAuto; with shipping, it was $14.
I had to swap the ends, but they were a direct fit ... I read where others had to tap new threads.
The strut works great.
