Woa. One mod that comes to mind is to lock the seats in your prefered position then remove the motors. I am sure these motors are quite heavy. Anyone else thought the same ?
Hmmm...may be much easier just to buy a different seat. You would save weight by removing the motors, but still, the rest of the seat is still pretty heavy I bet. If you bought more of a racing seat (but maybe not a full-on racing shell), you would save LOTS of weight and it would still be pretty comfy. Removing the motors sounds like a nightmare. But if you want to go for it, by all means, have at it!
