Nice bike, fellow r7 rider here. OK! please tell me where u got the seat from!! Please!
I had it custom made. had to shave that seat foam down because the bike was a little too tall for me. Took it to a local upholstery shop, showed them a pic of what I wanted and they created it. lmk if you are interested maybe they can do yours.

Shipping the seat to Hawaii and back these days may take a bit longer than you would like, I am sure there is someone local'ish that could do the same. I do like the stock seat but am thinking of getting a new cover that has a little more grip.

Welcome to the R7 world and this forum Eli!!

I love the bike! How much lower did you get the seat height from shaving the seat? Also have you done anything else to lower the height?

I liked the stock seat before that pic. 🤬 🤣 There's a really good bike upholstery guy we do track days with here in Los Angeles, I'll probably be paying him a visit soon. So thanks for that. 🤣

Hiya! I'm 5'3 for reference. Stockwise the toes and almost upper top part of the balls of my feet I could touch but I wanted it lower. (I'm not confident backing up my bike and for the love of riding I just cant nail walking aside of it:cautious:) The shaving of the seat lowered 1 inch and installing a lowrering link did 1.25, forks about 12mm so over all about 2.25 lowered. I had the kickstand customed because of course everywhere is sold out. Now I can fully plant the whole part of the balls of my both feet when I'm at a stop or reversing. So much more confident and easier to reverse and hang at N at stoplights :) Hope the info helps
I'll take a pic standing on it later so you can see.
