I was on a long ride the other day and i realized that i was'nt being very polite to my boys when the stock seat makes me slide forward into the tank. The next day at the shop i took the seat off and figured out a good way to tweak the seat level.


Take the seat off and looks at the underside of it, you'll notice 4 rubber mounts. Take the rectangular mounts on the back of the seat off and throw them at somebody, or save them. Next put the seat back into position and look at the hold down tabs that bolt to the subframe. Obviosly the holes don't line up anymore. While pushing the seat down, determine how much the plastic tabs need to be slotted. Use a file and be careful, stegan, you hamfist.

Bolt the seat on and your done. This will lower the back of the seat about 5/16ths of an inch while the front stays the same. I thought it was much more tolerable. Hell yeah!

Thanks,

I love low cost/no cost comfort or performance mods. Kudos.
I'll try it out.

Have done that before, so I might have to try the mod and see how it goes.

I prefer correct pronunciation as well, Stegen.

You are saying 'Stee-gin', eh?

'ahn-cha-toobie'
