Does anyone make a seat jack for the ZX chassis? (I want a higher seat...not a two-up seat) Klymaxx makes them for Arctic Cat and Polaris...why not Ski-Doo?

Or can you use a rev seat on a ZX chassis?

What other options (besides the expensive BOSS seat) are there?

Thanks!

I have a 03 renegade and took the seat off and had our local auto upholstery shop add about 3inches of foam and recover just the top. It looks just like a flat top boss seat now, but 1/2 the cost.

dobbs - Funny! I have enough padding down there already! I just would like to sit higher...less knee bend..quicker to stand up.

kargonett - do you have a picture of the seat...before and after your upholstery mod?

simple solution.. 1. look around, and find a steep big ditch.
2. line up to said ditch, and grab a handfull of throttle.
3. go off the ditch bank at a stupidly scary speed.
4. there, now that your pants are full, you should have gained at least an inch. Maybe 2. depending on your last meal.

HA HA! Funny!

Seriously folks, I am looking for actual options (options that rational people would do). Let's not turn this into a wasted thread.

Sorry, just got back from a weeks riding in the UP. I don't have any pics of the seat but it looks just like the boss. What I did was marked where the seat met the cowl at the gas tank and had the upholstery shop make it flat from the rear of the seat to the tank. It is great for changing from the seated position to standing. It also seems easier on the knees. I can try to get some pics in the next couple days.

Here are some pics...I hope. First time posting pics. Lets see if it'll work. for some reason I cant get the pictures to load. It keeps saying file size too big, even with just one picture. I tried to compress them and attach them as zip files, but it wont work. Any suggestions?

Well I think I figured it out. The pics have to be VERY small files. Sorry guys, I can email the other pics to anyone that wants them. Keep in mind the seat is now a flat top. The risers are 8", 136"X1 3/4" track 800 Renegade.
