    Default RT Seat adjustment

    I was looking under the seat and how it is attached and it looks like there is some adjustments that can be made as far as moving it back. The part that locks down in the frame looks like it can be adjusted to move the seat back about 1" or so. I also looked at the back where it attaches and that also looks like it can be moved back. Has anyone tried this and if so where you able to get the seat back a little. I would love a little more room without having to buy an aftermarket seat right now.

    The seat is not adjustable fore and aft. Except for minor adjustments for alignment of the seat and/or the locking pin.

    Identify what you have control over and find peace with what you don't.

    I was hoping the seat could be adjusted as well. I guess I'll save my money for a new seat. Probably the Ultimate seat located at Destination Daytone I-95 and US-1.

    A1A, I will be down at Jacksonville power sports Tuesday morning around nine to get an oil change so if you get a chance you could stop by and see my ultimate seat with the ultimate backrest. It might give you a feel of what you might be looking at with one of their seats and save you a trip down to their place.

    I'll will probably be there about an hour to an hour and a half.
