The tire pressures could have a big say-so, too.
Stock recommended pressures are 41psi front and rear!
That's bizarre considering Bolt C-Spec runs 33psi front and 36psi rear.
Stranger still is running more pressure on off-road patterned tires.
I don't get it.
As for the seat, it seems to sit tall as it is. I have a 30" inseam and the seat/footpeg arrangement's okay.
I thought about adding a wool seat pad. In fact, my girlfriend's got one on her V-Star 950 that I bought her a couple of years ago.
I may ask if I can try it out. Not sure I'd like the extra height, though.
The stock seat is pretty hard. Coupled with the general shape, it's like riding a rubber coated landscaping timber. ;-)
A reshape is in order, at least. I'm waiting on an available OEM replacement seat before I go carving up the original.
The dealership checked and there's a part #. Just nothing in stock yet.
Considering the simple nature of the rear sub frame. I may see if I can make a seat pan and construct a seat of my own to try out.
Bracketry looks easy enough and if I use 1/2" marine plywood, shaping and covering would be a snap.
Stay tuned, campers!
