    Hi Has Been, the stock X3 seating is fine, but for me on the technical up and down steep stuff, i was leaning forward to get a good look at the trail, the seat spacers sit me up just right (try and get hold a PHX telephone book)....we are snowbirds that spend the winter down the road from you, next season i will try and contact you for a trailride.

    Well, I sure can't use a Wickenburg phone book, as I have seen thicker restaurant menus! I look forward to having some riding time next season.

    My wife loves the 1.5" risers but for my 5'11" body it changed the fit of the stock seat to my body...Less lumbar support and upper pressure on shoulder blade area. Keeping hers and taking mine off.. Your experience may vary.

    Booster seat from Bob’s Big Boy works. Lol!

    I am 5’8” and see fine, but I am thinking about the risers for better seating position.

    I am 5'11 and put on the 1.5 risers. Ran them a few trips in Glamis and Baja but ultimately I felt they put me up too high. Might cut them down. Running 3/16 spacer for now and that actually helps a little

    I also purchased the 1.5" spacers but didn't like how close I was to the steering wheel after (I'm 6'2"). So I reduce it to 1" and absolutely love the riding position now. The change was just enough to make the distance to the steering wheel to the way I like it. Note that I mostly run the dunes and not really any technical trails. Just my $0.02.
