I bought this seat to replace my old beat up 25 year old seat on the 425. It was the original seat from 1993, and the bolt holes were destroyed during removal, so there is no putting it back on now. This new seat is very comfortable! BUT this new seat is also way higher than the old seat. I had to slide it all the way forward, and still have to stretch to push the go pedal down. Since my feet aren't firmly planted on the floorboards, any bumps are transfered to the go pedal. It's not pleasant. It is mainly the front of the seat that is too high. The the seat kind of points up towards the front.
So I figured I would drill new holes for the "hinges" to lower it down a bit, but then it won't be able to pivot. It might work if I chop the top of the mounting brackets down a bit, but I don't know if I can cut that easily with the tools I have. Has anyone else dealt with this situation successfully?
