Default Raise the seat

Is there any way to raise the seat of the Stryker? Having long legs, I feel that the bike is a little to low for me. Can the spring suspension be adjusted to raise the rear section higher?

I don’t think without fabbing new mounts for the seat. But then you would have a big gap between seat and frame. Stiffening the preload may stop some sag but will affect ride, doubt you will get more than inch from that . A 240 rear tire will give ya about an inch. Most of us long leg guys get extended forward controls 3” seems to fit most. I also added floorboards which made a huge difference in comfortableness. But sounds like you don’t have a problem with controls just ride height. What I’ve done is push my feet forward a few inches when I come to a stop.

You'd probably have to go with air-ride in order to raise the seat above the stock height. You could also have a custom seat made that is simply thicker. Another option is to go with a 240 or 250 series rear tire. That will raise the seat a little bit too.

I ordered this seat cushion for comfort. I think it will also raise the seating position. Thanks for all responses.
