10. Alter Seat Height


Some motorcycles come with height-adjustable seats and others, like the Vulcan S, offer factory options that change seat height and/or seat location. The reason behind these options is to give riders a more comfortable reach to the ground, pegs or handlebar. While shorter riders immediately come to mind, taller riders can benefit from altering seat height and shape, too. You can cut down or add on padding to the stock seat pan and take it to an upholsterer for recovering. Not surprisingly, the aftermarket has a wealth of off-the-rack or build-to-order seat options. You may even decide that you want to add that optional seat heater to make those cold weather commutes more comfortable.
