Hi all. I put a Springer seat on my rebel, and the front sits too low, causing me to slide forward. Super uncomfortable. Any ideas on how to un-ghettofi this setup? Currently I've just stacked a bunch of washers to raise the seat in the front (pic attached).
My springs are already pretty low. You think I could get lower with the kind you linked? Spring height attached.
Yes. I think you can get lower with different springs. As Flitecontrol said, the shocks will do most of the work. I have a seat like yours on my bike. Love the look - hate the hard seat. The springs add almost nothing to the comfort of the ride. I'm going to change the seat when I get some time which probably means never.
