Lift the seat you will see two hex bolts. Remove them, reposition the seat to the desired location and reinstall the bolts.

Hi Swing One,

This should be in your owners manual. If not go to this PDF and save:

It shold be noted that they are socket headed bolt, I think that the size is 5mm, allen wrench. They will be overly tight the first time you remove them.

The page in the owners manual that describes them is 51.

I'm getting ready to have mine raised up to make it a back rest. I'm looking forward to a bit more back support.

Some people raise the buttrest up for more back support ( http://www.leroybeal.net/motorcycles/silverwing/articles/backrest/backrest.html )

I removed my buttrest ( not official slang word ... just what SWingers call it ) and put in a Utopia backrest ( http://www.utpr.com/silverwingnew.html ). I love how the Utopia backrest pivots into my back ... which is very comfortable as I reposition myself on long rides. I covered the plastic with an Alaskan Sheepskin.

Thanks for the feedback ive seen the extentions thats not too much of a problem its the firmness of whats left when you remove the buttrest 'I have looked into the sheepskin thing but in England it may well be wet most of the time as i ride in all weathers :union jack: Ah the blistering summers lol

I think so there seems to be no padding when its removed the whole area where the butt rest sits seems to be solid Sad so my choice is legs or butt not a bad choice when looking at women but not so good for sitting lol Laughing

The Utopia Backrest has a screw at the base that determines how far forward the Utopia Backrest sets. So I have the screw positioned where the backrest is forward ... keep my but away from the "no padding".

Please note that I do have an Airhawk underneath the Alaskan Sheepskin ... so I do afford my butt some luxury.

Your seat choices should not change or dictate the way you are looking at women. :lol!:

A bike at the dealership open house had those sheepskin covers. I couldn't help but touch them. Wink The owner of the bike came over and said hop up and see how they feel....Heaven, really heaven. bounce I might have to invest in those for the dry days. I bet in cooler weather they would really be comfortable although he said it is great even when it's hot out.

They are ... I have for both me and the passenger.

I have ridden with them soaking wet ( no choice ), the skin portion was totally wet -- the top was drier after I ran my hand over the wool and brushed off the wetness.

I know it sounds strange ... they are cooler in summer and warmer in winter plus they have the added advantage reducing monkey butt by allowing air movement and reducing the moisture.

I got a bead seat that I just love. It does the same thing as the sheepskin in that it allows air to flow under you and keeps you cool on a hot day. I ride mostly in my jeans and on a hot day when you got somewhere your jeans were a bit "damp" and not very comfortable Crying or Very sad My beat seat was for my Helix so I'm hoping it will fit the Silverwing. I remember when I first got it the information said if you think this doesn't work try it in cold weather...yikes it is so cold you can't stand it...so I know it works!
