Low seat for a '08 250 XCF-W??

Recommended Posts

Looking for a low seat for the girlfriends 2008 250 XCF-W. I was told that the one offered in KTM hardparts is indefinitely unavailable... Looks for one made by SDG and they don't show a low seat for this bike...

Anyone have one or have a suggestions? I would like to stay away from cutting down the stock seat foam as we will be selling it to offset the cost of the low seat...

Enduro Engineering sells a nice product. Do a search, you will find a few options.

They don't have lowered seats, but their seat pans are designed to give an extra 1 1/2" of foam. That will give you more to work with if you're going to shave it. Now this is true for prior years, but I can't say for certain on the 08's. They list seats for them, but not sure if their seat pans differ from stock. Best to call them.

I'm not 100% positive for the 08, but EE offers lowered seats. The pan itself is the same but about an inch of foam is removed.

Set her static sag to 40-45mm and rider sag to 115-120mm. (make sure she has the correct spring rate ) Raise the forks in the clamps about 10mm and set her fork sag to 80mm. Static fork sag to about 45-50mm. This should lower the bike enough to help.

IMO,

Dwight
