Question Lowering seats ...650xt ???

Has anyone lowered seats on a 650?

I cut my cage down 4" and my head is dangerously close to the speaker!

I have got a game plan sort of.....

I do ? what has been done to get around the clutch exhaust.
Looks like 2" and I will be right on top of it.....

Thanks

Can you post some pics of your seat brackets and clutch housing? I might be able to help.

I had to remove the head rest pipe, Due to my AC high back seats.
Oh you are talking about top "roof x brace"
No I did not just like cat n hat said leave the bolts loose till they are all in then snug them up.
My AC roof went back on fine.
Looks factory and way more scale now!
Hopefully not so much of a wind block also...

Cat n hat
I can get some good pic's tonight. With the lowered brackets in place.
I was looking at pointing clutch exhaust forward..
I have got it mostly tacked together lowered seats 3".

Now I remember reading to move the seat base 1" forward....
Is this due to the seat base reclining back and now hitting where I cut thus causing more work for me
I marked out around the seat base and did not account for the tilt back.

My stock set up was not level at all...
Actually was a little more than 1/2 bubble foward.
When I tacked it all up I made sure it is now level.

?? what did you do for seat belt's... and their mounting??

I have stock lap belts. And got a set of shoulder belts on here from a xtz. I also have some 4 point's. I want to put in either the 4points or shoulder belts.

Ya Riddler I moved them forward to help with the recline of the RZR seats and to get a little clearance for exhaust on the pass. side. I moved them down parallel with the front/side rollbar tube. As for the belts I was able to leave them in the stock location. They are easer to get to now. The shoulder belt gets moved down with the cage so it works out pretty good. The tricky part of all is forming the plastic and trimming the pass. seat pan around the filler neck.

hey Riddler ,
looks like your making good progress! and looks great !
take a look at my thread ''latest work on my cat'' i think thats what it was called . i have a few pics of my lowering seat job and there is also a couple of pics of the aluminum seat pans i made . they work alot better than trying to cut up the plastic ones . i was able to run the factroy inner fender wells too when i got done , some some said they had to make new ones but i just did a little trimming and drilling and they fit great .
