I'm 6'4" and would like to be able to slide my seat back more. Looks like there's a lot of room where it could be moved back further. Any mods anyone has done or advice? Thanks. I'm a noobie. First sxs.

I you find a solution to be able to move your seat back you won't be able to put click 6 harnesses in your machine. The standard seat sliders move the seat right upto the harness bar. I'll include a picture.

Have you considered just cutting the bars down a couple of inches and re welding them?

No. I'm only 5'6" so I have plenty of room with the normal seat adjustment. I only moved it back so you could see the problem.

Don't want a harness or start cutting on the cage. Just want the seat to slide back further. There is obviously more room for it. Can the stock sliders be modified?

I had the seats out so I could add 1" spacers so I would sit higher. I can't remember how everything went together. You could look at the sliders and see if the seat frame could be mounted further back on the sliders.

I used two pieces of stainless 1.25x0.25 flat bar and moved my driver seat back about 1.75 inches. I unbolted the seat mount/ slider mechanism and bolted down the flat bar. Then drilled new holes in flat bar 1.75 farther back and reinstalled the seat. Works great.

Could you have gone back further

Could you have gone back further if you wanted? Looks like there's room to go back at least 3 inches (or more) before hitting the plastic.

Yea I could’ve went farther. My wife is short so she slides the seat up when she drives. I had to take that into consideration and not move the seat too far
