Jack up/Higher seat?
« on: Jul 14, 2018, 09:51 AM »
Good morning guys & girls,

Could anyone recommend a solution to my seat height problems. I am looking to ideally boost it as high as possible - im assuming it'll have to be re-upholstered and wanted to know if anyone has any recommendations ?

 Here was my solution to the same problem.

 Not difficult but takes some patience. My biggest problem was finding foam of the correct density.

Don't take Life too serious, it's not permanent.

I have just used sussexmotorcycles, just down the road near Brighton. He is very good, puts in a much memory foam as you would like.  Think he only had one grade of foam though.  Probably close enough to see him to discuss before committing yourself.

I did not want the seat higher particularly, just more comfort, although it probably ended up 5-10mm higher(ie I can just notice it is a bit higher), but he took a lot of the original foam out first and put two inches of new foam in.
