Seat Height

Hi
I manged to increase seat height. I'm over 6ft. 40mm increase. Makes the ride more comfortable on the knees. Worthwhile mod for comfort for tall riders.

Re: Seat Height

Another thing that helps a taller rider is peg lowering brackets, the previous owner of my SV650S '03 was kind enough to install them.

I’m curious as to how you did this because I can’t fully tell from the pics. I’ve got this on my list of things to explore this offseason... I can’t lower my pegs any more because I already drag my toes. Did you add foam under the fabric?
