PostSubject: Lowering a ktm exc seat   Wed Aug 30, 2017 12:32 pm

Hi guys, I have tried a powerparts lowered seat on a 2017 exc 250 and it seemed to make no/little difference.

Has anyone had the foam cut on their original seat and recovered. If so how did it go and who done it?

Janes workshop in Newcastle emlyn has been recommended so far.

There is very little foam a 17 to cut, think you flogging a dead horse, tyre choice can lower a bike a little/sidi or ankle hinge boots can help a bit too... other than that you need to speak to a suspension expert & maybe get it lowered..???

I dunno, it's thin front and back but where I'm sat I reckon I can lose 10-15mm?

Good luck lowering that seat, it has little foam as wolfy says.

Have you tried dropping the forks in the risers? worked wonders on Clarkys and Dan's bike.

I did try the powerparts seat in the shop on the bike and felt
No lower.

Surely if they cut out 10mm in a smooth line 6 inch from the front to 6 inch from
The back I'm there?

I tried lowering the front forks 10mm, they was already on the second line, lowered them 5/6mm from there and it was very responsive in technical sections but at speed on fire roads I always had a wobble on.

I don't want to lower the bike itself,
