Has anyone purchased the low seat for the Cross Roads? Should it take a little time to break in? It doesn't seem to be any lower?
I was just lacking being flat footed so the dealer said there was a low seat that dropped about and inch. The seat came in late December. We took the bike to the dealer a week ago. My husband picked up the bike yesterday and we took to have pinstriped so I really didn't get a chance to sit on it.
Since it is wonderful weather in Iowa we brought her home last night, parked her in the garage and I didn't sit on her until this morning. I am dissapointed- it doesn't seem to any lower -but it is heated- (big plus!)
There are a lot of ways to lower the seat and some a much lower cost than the Victory seat prices.
I am unable to post url's due to the rules here. I do not know if any of the sponsors do this?
I know of a place in N.C. I use they are really good and very low cost.
You can have the heat added, memory foam and a lot of other things.
Glad you like the low rider seat.
Are you running 0 on your shocks?
It is not needed to add any air up to 250lbs.
This will also lower the bike in the rear.
I am 5'7" at 140 lbs and my XC rides great at 0
The stock seat height is good
Just a thought

My new seat is heated. Both rider and passenger. Hubby started the bike today - said butt warmer works good.
Maybe the seat was just really stiff too- 4 degrees this morning.
If your seat is heated; it is NOT the low seat. Somebody made a mistake on the order.
As for lowering. There are a couple of compnies making lowering links. One is HMD[Heavy Metal Designs] that make a good quality fixed link, and another company that makes an adjustable unit. I would be leary of going more then 2"
There is a lowering kit available for about $150. It takes about an hour to install and can lower up to 3", if I recall. I lowered my XR about 1.5".
Thanks. I did go back out tonight and sit on it again. It does seem better after I sat on it for a while. Since I just put another $800 in it this weekend I think I will just wait until I can start riding to see how it is.
