2018 CVO adjustment

Anyone adjusted or changed the seat on an 18 CVO? Iím only 5-11 but the seating position seems to be more forward than my previous bikes. Any recommendations to move back an inch or so?

I have the same bike and that particular seat slides you forward, I had mine redone, took and inch off the back and had him remove the some of the foam pad that slopes down. Now its more of a bucket seat, also had him install 1/2" of gel pad

Much better feel now and doesn't slide you forward

Good luck

Mean City Cycles in NC would probably do it & they do good work. Could just google & call them to ask.

Yes, you are describing it perfect. Iíve had MCC do a seat in the past. Just hate the down time waiting
