Shaving the seat??
Posted April 06, 2005 - 08:51 AM
I've not had a dirtbike for a few years so really looking forward to getting muddy again!
Only problem i have is im a short arse and was looking at previous threads about lowering the seat height.
So has anyone got ant tips or pics( even better ) on how to do a good job on shaving the seat foam down? or any other suggestions on how to lower the bike a little?
I knew when i started looking at different models that i could have gone for something easier to manage but after a test ride on the Wr450 i just had to have one!!
Bikes are not meant to be sensible anyway....Are they??

You can cut a section out of the rear subframe brace to lower the back of the seat
You can add a lowering link in the rear and raise the forks in the trees
You can send your suspension out to be shortened (works best of all these mods)
A lower profile rear tire can get you 1/2" lower even
Don't cut the seat foam. Just my advice.
