The bars where quite back when I got the bike and the result was the same. I just thought it will take some time to get used to it and I haven't had any long trip until yesterday. After 250 miles I was very uncomfortable. I tried getting the seat on the high position today. It was just a bit better but not very much and I'm not very tall so it's definitely not a solution

Have you tried putting just the front of the seat on the higher setting so it slopes backwards a bit more than when both ends are high or both ends low?

No. But i doubt it will do any good. Not to mention it will look very ugly 😂😂

How did you do that? I have a 2018 tiger 800 xrx and I want to do that as well. I changed the seat on the front side to the high position and the back of the seat to the low position to make the sitting position more flat.
But I don't manage to put the seat back on the motor.
If I put the front of the seat in the right position on the motor, I can't mount the back of the seat on the motor.

It's ages ago, I know I put one end higher than the other but I can't remember which way round. I'm pretty sure that it was front higher than rear but this was two or three years ago, and these days breakfast is a mystery by lunchtime.

You can get the front low and back high, i've tried that too.. But i don't think it will work the other way around.

I paid a local upholsterer to redo the seat on my 2012, it didn't hurt the block and tackle but my ass would go numb after a couple hours.  The changes made a big difference.

OK. I want the front high and the back low because I want the seating position more flat. So I can move to the back if I want to.. Now I'm pushed a little to the rank.

I cut out the back curve of the seat as it put pressure on my tail bone but what I would try first is to fit a cool cover.
These mesh covers work to keep your butt cool but what they also do is provide a subtle soft suspention on top of your seat. I have one over my modified seat and it is a great solution. Your pressure point would sink into the mesh and hopefully not give you any bother.

second the motion - damaged my tailbone in an accident while in the army and sitting down for any length of time is uncomfortable/painful

the mesh seat cover solved that issue for me on the bike and even at my age and with a FUBAR tailbone, I ride comfortably all-day

don't judge it by the looks - a Airhawk or one of the other seat cushions look (and cost) far more substantial - but the cool cover just works in spite of its deceptively simple appearance
