Here are some quick picks.

About the extra head room...... I hate to say with the corbeau brackets there is minus 1 inch extra room...

I think I can buy a quarter to 3/8ths of an inch taking out some washers

but it looks like I will be needing to remove the sliders.

They look nice but less head room, no suede option or sub belt is a deal breaker for me.. But that is a nice price and they do look nice.

I don't think you'll find ANY seats that get much additional headroom by the time you bolt them to sliders.

Mount them as low as possible, directly to the floor and I'd bet there is an improvement vs. stock.

Futile gesture but I took out the 3 washers used for mounting the seat to the slider and the slider to the metal base and that bought me about 1/2 a centimeter.  So now I am within  3/4 of an inch of stock. Looks like I will be pulling the sliders and welding up that base plate, that should get me at least an inch under stock.

The seats are very nice though I think I will find them very comfy.

Hey thanks for getting pics up so fast.  For head room measurements are checking from top of your actual head or just the top of the seat.  Did the position of the seat feel comfortable other than the loss of head room?  Keep us updated on what you end up doing for mounting these lower.

BTW that seat looks damn crisp in there!

I dangled a plumb line from the roof to the spot on the seat where my tail bone sits.


They are very comfie seats they hold me in position quite well when I am doing corners

Who / when is doing the review for these in an FC ?  I hate the slippery leather seats in my 87 GXL and would like to have a go to plan for when the time comes.  Unfortunately, I have blue interior so the black will look a bit odd - but it is way better than slipping around that way it was before I started the swap.

good question. We have had some interest from a few FC guys with no takers yet!

So let me publicly state that we want give an FC guy a crazy good deal on this seat, with a few stipulations:

1. have stock or lightly modified interior
2. willing to install before summer
3. take pictures and do a review

ebdyguy sounds like you are an inch away from being my personal hero.  PM me for a quote ma friend.
