Can you change the seat on a motorcycle?
“It’s easy to move a rider ahead or back a couple of inches, and to lower or raise them the same amount,” Nafzger reports. That can be done by cutting the original foam, or replacing the foam and giving it a new shape. Decide what kind of material will cover your new saddle.
How much does it cost to lower a motorcycle seat?
You’ll spend anywhere from $200 to $300 to lower either the front or rear suspensions. Aftermarket shocks can also cost anywhere from $500 to $1,500.
What kind of thread do you use for a motorcycle seat?
