The easyest way is to take the seat cover off (staples underneath) shave foam with electric carving knife then staple cover back on. or buy shorter rear shocks.

Need to remove stuck power seat 96 accord


Depending upon the size of the "something", it could be under the seat or under the console. To get the seat working, go to the UNDER-HOOD FUSE/RELAY BOX and check 20A POWER SEAT FUSE 27. While you are at it, check 20A POWER SEAT HEIGHT FUSE 31.

Can i lower the seat height of my 2006 roadliner?


best way is to take your cover off your seat and shave it down about 2-3 inches...then put some memory foam in it and recover...its more comfortable and it will lower your seat height.

I need to lower my 2005 Goldwing ... have no idea how to do this.


You may be able to modify your seat by removing some of the padding, and recovering it. Aftermarket seats may also be available.

Very slight adjustments in height can often be achieved by moving the fork tubes in the triple clamp. Note that this will affect the handling characteristics of the bike. This modification is not recommended for safety reasons.

Another alternative is to wear boots with an extra thick sole.

In any of these cases, the difference in height is going to be relatively small -- a couple inches at most. It is important that your bike allows you to feel comfortable, confident, and that you can control it fully at all times. Although it's not a very satisfying solution, the best solution might be to find a bike with a lower standover height.

Need to lower the height of the front passenger seat.


It would be difficult to do your self. I think you would need a shop that does handicapp vehicle modifications to do it. The seat is only held on by 4 bolts, but I don't see a way to lower the seat.

Want to lower the seat height.


best go with a lowering link to drop the rear end a little. there is not much seat there in the first place for anyone to make a thinner one, other than getting a race use seat unit. http://www.mpsracing.com/products/Spencer/Links.asp
