I think if you cut 2.5" of foam out of the seat, you're going to be sitting on the subframe. My stock seat was already a plank. I can't imagine cutting most of the foam out of it.

I assume the bike is brand spanking new? Ride it and after 10+ hours it will "settle" down, the X-Bushing is a quick way to lower it if you need more...

Is this for the purpose of reaching the ground or better ergos between bars/seat/pegs?

If for foot to ground, have you set the sag? Run it deeper if you want, 5" is not unheard of till you build confidence.

My buddy has an 09' 530 exc and the first mod was a low soft seat maybe he gained an 1'' then the x bushing but its pretty tough grinding on a brand new $10,000 bike. Bought the ktm bar spacers and lower the front an 1'' along with rear, now he can tippy toe he's 5'6''. Its times like these I like being 6'4''
