Here are some more pics, just use the stock cover and cut off the access. The seat still feels the same to me.

Did you just sand it or did you cut it?
Looks good!

I used a hacksaw to make the cuts. the hardest part was smoothing it back out. you have to be real careful with the grinder. doesn't take hardly any pressure at all. I tried sand paper but that would take hours. I have never recovered anything before and that was the step I was worried about, but it turned out to be one of the easiest steps. Hope this helps others.

Man U all should just go get am old XLT. Seat's plenty low on them!
That's the best thing about the sleds the last 5 years, nice tall seat so your knees aren't in your chest when you're sitting. Or do you ride the trail in 10 mi standing up side hilling the bank?? Haha
If ya can't get your leg over the seat lift your leg a little higher!

Jk. I ported a few tracks too. Best result was on my kids 380 though. Let it spin!
