Wow 11" inch riser, I am the same height and have a 3". A shorter riser will put you in a better rider position instead of straight legged stance with a tall riser. The RS seat is very nice and around $300.
Every day is a good day just try missing one.

They maybe free but my nearest dealer is approximately 55miles one way and gas is $4.08 per gallon......

Thanks though, your heart was in the right place.......:righton


Search the 2013 catalog on here. I found the PDF version in a thread posted a while back (I honestly can't tell you which one or I'd link you right to it). Saves you the fuel money!

Absolutely not!! I have tried and tried, every single time I get my Summit pointed down the trail it veers off left or right through the trees, up the mountain, over the top, down the other side, not to be seen again for hours on end.....lol. I just love that problem.

Posted ImageThis one says it's the racing seat. As you can see the pic is not big. Where it goes down from the higher to low to meet the plastic..........is that where it narrows? Or is the entire seat narrower?

Ya I need to have the feel of something up and in front of me when standing to pull, push, man handle the sled when standing up being aggressive on trail. Nothing I hate more than that feeling of going over the front when the forward momentum slows quickly.

I just got the RS seat myself but have not tried it yet. The stock adrenaline seat is too wide. When you are hitting the twisties fast, it takes 2 butt scoots in transitioning from hanging off one side of the sled to the other side. If you have a bunch of S turns in a row, it pretty much sucks. I am hoping the RS seat allows much faster body transitions. It also looks like it will push your body forward more so you are much more over the gas tank. Will see how much I like it after a 300 mile ride though.

Ride Hard or go Home

Thanks guys very much for your input, and DBer your explanation an using the term "butt scoots" drew a clear picture for me of the benefits. Personally the stock seat and it's width doesn't give me a problem with butt scoots but on long rides it's comfortable but I swear it puts pressure on my hip joints and acts as if it's dislocating them a bit, and sometimes I think I can hear them click. The side to side body transition and making it easier would be nice, and when hanging way off the narrowness may just provide a better place to hook the crook of your knee instead of more of the calf under the lip of the seat itself.

gride941 I have a couple of questions......first how the heck did you get the baby to balance like that!!!!

Secondly, did you bend up a couple of the tabs on your running boards to use as stops or does it just look that way, and what are the pieces at the end of you running boards for? Bracing or stops? Or is it some sort of device you fabricated for cat walking?

HELP! lol.......

I know my ignorance maybe showing a bit here but I found a new 2012 XRS seat for sale and my question is, is it the same as the RS seat and is it one in the same?

In that I mean does it still have the two inch height advantage over the other regular XP seat?

I just picked up the WRP seat @ incredible off season pricing of $107. We'll have to revisit this topic and compare our likes and dislikes once the snow flies. Although I havent put the seat on the sled yet I sure do like the quality.

Was planning on using the stock base, my oem cover is showing some decent wear in the yellow panels anyway.

Sounds good to me on comparisons and likes an dislikes I know mine should be here soon and I'll be putting it on just to try it out in the garage even though my sled is not fully assembled at the moment.

My wife laughs at me sitting on my sled in the summer. I even think she gives me the " ya know its not going to make winter come any sooner" line too. Dont forget to make the vroom vroom noises while tossing it into a few imaginary corners too. Thats what makes the summer sled experience complete.
