Simple seat riser mod?

Okay after spending an hour searching the forum with no luck, I will just have to ask my question.

Can anyone point me in the direction of the simple seat mod that raises up the front of the seat where the seat pivots into place?

I see this mod referred to a lot, but no one explains what it is or how it's done.


I know this isn't an ideal fix, it just needs to work for a couple of weeks until my SC seat is done.

Thank you!

There are a couple ways to do it. One uses washers on the forward bracket to push the front up. Another uses foam strips stuffed into the holes on the seat pan in the forward part of the seat. The washers mod would probably be your best bet as it is more easily reversible for after your SC is done.

A picture is great, but how do you do that? Even if I just used washers I still need a piece of metal on the bottom. What is used?

Thanks.

What I used was a piece of aluminum scrap that I had tossed in my box of "this might come in handy someday" metal scrap. I save bits of aluminum off of anything headed for the trash bin. I love aluminium cuz it's light and mostly cuz it is easy to drill and file.

If you havent' started a scrap crap collection, you might have to go to Home Depot or Harbor Freight and buy a piece of sheet aluminium to hack up for little projects.

Get a hacksaw, vise, drill, file, pipe cutter and go to improvisin'
