I put a $50 Ebay Kirkey seat in my one of my 350s years ago. I also made a base frame to lower it a few inches and a tilt so I could access the Engine easier. The base frame was made from scrap angle iron(bed frame). I also added a 5-point harness. It keeps me in place very securely, even while upside down...lol... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgQj8CVyIVM probably around 2004???

I have a second seat just like that one except it has a heat shield built in. Its going into the Wicked Beastie 350.

Easy to build with basic welder n a vise to bend with. I am sure you guys can make a better design than this one, lets see it! It does make accessing the Engine bay very nice.

Did this give you more room than a stock seat by lowering it? Say more or less leg room than stock? I have an aluminum(not sure if its a kirky) race car seat that I bought at a garage sale a couple years ago, fits me perfect. Can you buy replacement covers for these seats. It's a slip on. I'm sure I could make something up if It couldn't be purchased.

Ya, it give me an inch or 2 more leg room. Felt better sitting closer to the ground in most riding areas. Kirkey sells assorted slip on covers, they use snaps to secure the cover. I have 3 of these seats.

With all the new UTVs on the market, maybe one of their seats can be used also?

That's cool, I had figured this would've costed leg room. Thought it was a short guy comfort mod. I'm sure with the side supports it has a nice feel. Since the seat in a pilot and odyssey will fit both could this mount bolt directly into a pilot? That way the seat setup could switch rides? This interests me. Gonna have to find this seat. Think it's in my dads garage attic. Should be fun. Hopefully it's not too wide. It's a big ass aluminum racing seat. I think it may have been custom made for someone. I'll post pics one of these days when I get it out and dusted off. I don't remember any brand markings on it.
