Default Seat Mod questions and thoughts.

I am a big guy. I keep seeing the mod to make the seats more comfy. Also seems like it would change (raise) peg position slightly. I would love to move the pegs down and back at least an inch or more to make it more comfortable with stock seat now. Does the seat mod make that huge a difference in comfort on the rear end?

I am almost 6' about 270. The way it sits now (stock), my knees are above the tank. I can't decide on peg locators or forward controls yet.

On the last ride last month I used the crash bars on long stretches. I really liked my feet up there vs the mid mounts.
If the seat height was higher like my KTM, it would be fine but that's not happening on the VMAX.

Yeah, I am 6' and knees were so high it caused problems with my hips on a test ride prior to purchase. Before I bought the bike I researched that I could get forward controls otherwise it would have been no Vmax for me.

Removed the bars and added forward controls and all good. Yeah, they were expensive but it was that or no Vmax, so now all good...

I enjoy my forwards because of my arthritis issues. For to ride a Vmax I have to have atleast one leg stretched out on pegs or engine guard I'm just to stiff.

I am 6'1 and 270.I have the Corbin with the Yamaha factory crash bar and highway pegs mounted to them.The Corbin sits higher than most which helps a tall rider.It is substantially wider than stock and is positioned good for highway pegs.I can ride 250-300 miles on a Sunday afternoon with no problems.The Corbin is firm but I like it.

I'm also a big guy, and have been riding on a Corbin for over 25 years. So far, so good. I wore the original seat cover out, and deleted the gas cap flap when the seat was redone.
