Yamaha Tracer 900 seat height: can it be lowered?

In this article we have explained all the options you have to lower the height of a bike like this one

Also in the case of the Yamaha Tracer 900 you can ask an upholsterer to modify the seat of your bike and reduce the thickness of the foam that is made of.

It is likely that you can buy lowered seats ready to be installed but searching the internet we have not found any.

Be careful with this solution because the foam of the seat is intended to protect the lumbar and back of the driver, especially during long trips.

In fact, doing our online search we have seen that there is a “super comfort” seat for sale for this Yamaha model, to make sitting on this bike for long hours even more comfortable.

Kit to lower the height of the Yamaha Tracer 900 motorcycle

Another alternative is to change the connecting rods that come from the factory to make the bike lower considerably and the seat closer to the ground.

Searching online we have found kits to lower this Yamaha model that cost about 140 €. The seat height is reduced by 15 to 50 mm due to the lowered position.

The risk of this change to the structure of the bike is that the entire geometry of the vehicle is modified with possible safety risks in its operation. The bike has been developed and produced with a different type of proportions in mind and may not respond as it should at some point, especially when cornering.
