I think the seat is to soft. Anyone change there seat or have done anything to make it a little more firm.

just vecro a nice piece of 7/8" plywood to the top of the seat. That would stiffen it up a bit. :rolleyes:

If you think that the f7 is to soft you should try a polaris ( i think pro x ) that thing is super soft

weight is probably a factor here
Come on if Boss can make a firmer seat thats 6 pounds lighter the real issue is production costs..

Just right for me and MY skinny 140 lb a$$, but I don't know about the next guy that is slightly more gravitationally challenged at 240+ lbs! -- Roy

too soft for me, and pretty slippery
but other than that, the sled is as close to perfect as any sled i have ever ridden,
if you look hard enough you can find fault in anything, so concentrate on the good and you will forget about that soft seat!

I meant that the weight of the rider plays a part. For me at 165 its perfect but for someone that weighs more it may not

If you weigh more, there should be more padding in your seat. . . lol.

(Like the softness for my skinny butt, but then again I often do 40 to 50% standup when shredding the trails.)

Oops! :wacko: That makes more sense. I weigh 190#s @ 5'7" so I sit with jewels on the pad. I definately feel the transition from the seat to the tank. I'd definately like to see a firmer, taller seat!
