This is not FaceBook, 'can we get a gazillion likes for this little puppy or we'll drown it?'As you've probably noticed, you have received zero likes for your new seat concept. I can't imagine you selling many, so for fucks sake DO NOT give up your day job.
On the plus side it looks as though you've done quite a neat job.
Mine is lowered 20mm with a KTM kit, it's just spacers for the forks and shock, use the std springs. Std seat.The lowering kit for the 2015 is a shock rebuild job to fit the spacer, you can probably do the forks yourself. Lowers the bike by 50mm apparently. I had a sit on stumos 17 300 that had been lowered, although I'm sure he said it was just 20mm, that definitely felt better. Might be worth having a word with him.
The power parts low kit for mine is 350 quid including springs front and rear and a shorter side stand.
Which is why I love my little Honda, yes people take the piss. But now I can do all the stuff that the big boys do. .well, almost.the shock and forks need to come apart to fit the kit.....
Yes 20mm is noticeable, it's still too tall in some circumstances but any lower and i think you'd catch more things with the bash plate/feet/pegs...
So you're saying fit a set of pedals for the hills? 2018 fi 2ts have pedals in the power parts catalogue. Look under the heading I'm Going To Chance A Ride Green Laning.Your Honda is great, a little more power to get up the big hills wouldn't go amiss but then you might get faster on the less hilly bits... :scooter:
Just had a quote for a rebuild with glucesterbikespecialists. 164cc big bore kit, stage 2 cam, new crank and mains and any head work that needs doing while they're in there. Stroker crank is also an option to make it a 180cc, should rip then.Your Honda is great, a little more power to get up the big hills wouldn't go amiss but then you might get faster on the less hilly bits... :scooter:
Hi there , do you know where or how to source this as i could use a 30mm thick one for 09 250 exc ..Being slightly short I struggle to reach the floor on a standard EXC. My 17 seems even taller that the previous bike. I had in the past lowered my EXC but I think the handling was affected. Based on previous experience I had decided not to go down the route of lowering and fit a Power Parts low seat but this only gives you about 20mm off.
Most of of the time I'm trail riding so this is all good but if I'm messing around doing tight turns, figure 8's, just having a bit of slow speed practice the bike is still too tall if I need to put a foot down. So the answer is the Super Low BDA Training seat.
This seat is not for the faint hearted and not for a long trail ride as you will most definitely have monkey butt, but for training when you need to get a foot down or when your mostly standing it's perfect.
Standard seat foam height 80mm
PowerParts seat foam height 60mm
BDA Super Low seat foam height 20mm
