Default Low Profile Seat

Do any of you gals that Mountain ride use a Low Profile Seat?
What do you think of it?
Thank you,
Vickie

I don't have one on my sled but have ridden another sled with a low profile seat and loved it! Considering having my seat shaved down like they do motorcross seats to see if it helps the ease of getting across

I strongly recommend this, especially if you have shorter legs. I'm 5'8" and it makes a big difference to me.
I had about 2.5 inches shaved off my seat at one of our local upholstery places. That was as much as I could shave and still maintain seat integrity. It may not seem like much but it's the difference between a seat at the knee or at the calf on my sled and getting a boot from one side to the other quickly, especially if you're at all fatigued.

Default Pics?

Hey there! Super helpful to hear from someone who had done a seat mod... Can you share a pic of what you had done, I'm very interested in this... i'm riding an older sled because i struggle with jumping over the high back of new machines... i think this would be a game changer for me!

I will try to get a pic posted - wish I had seen this before the snow show - I'd have taken one on an unmoded seat so you could see the difference. Not sure how well it'll show w/out a reference.

Thumbs up Thank you!

Thanks so much lady!!!! i needed to see what was done, the pics absolutely help out. i'm 5'4 and leaping across sled seats is quite a workout and feels limiting of what sleds i feel i can ride... the seat mod will be the first thing that i will work on when i get a sled of my very own this spring (have to wait for tax refund season)... i'm so excited to have a sled that fits ME

Here is what we had done to my wife's. Cut about 10 inches in length & 3 inches shorter. Hopefully she will chime in here on the difference it made. Doing it this way also allowed her to keep the battery in the stock location.

About how much did it cost to have this modification done.
Is it less than $350.00, cost of a new 2 inch lower wrp seat?
Thanks
