Also, I think it has threaded studs which may need to be knocked out for installation on a MC seat. Good find.
Good point and I would not like that for me.

I also modified my seat by raising it onto a 2" aluminum channel on each rail, added carriage bolts and hex head machine screws to replace all of the OEM fasteners. The 2" rise is comfortable seating.

An easier access to remove the seat if needed.

Should be easy to modify either way. I've already made intermediate brackets like this idea for installing a new heater box. So would be easy to add a channel for these, and I'm usually driving with sitting up on one leg, so a bit higher would be nicer for me as well. I'll play around with that as well. It'll be a couple months before I get the seat back from the upholstery shop and the new carpet in before I get these parts installed. I'll be updating all my threads come spring with the final results.

Put in seat heating pads while the skins are going in new...easy and inexpensive. No better time. Passenger seat also...bottom and back for each.

Hell no! you ever compare their prices with skidim? Difference between impellers is 20 dollars and they say the part is on sale. Price gauging at its best.

I got a set from I think RacingSummit, they are just stock car rails for around $40. Same hole patterns. All you have to do is knock out their bolts they put in the rails and use a coat hanger wire to connect them.
