<< I looked into this when I upgraded to the captain's style seats and really could not see an easy way to do this. The mechanism is a meshing of gear teeth through a small arc, and the end of the range of recline is where the teeth end. I could see no way to increase the recline without completely reconstructing the entire mechanism. To do this would require fabrication of parts and welding, which would further necessitate complete disassembly of the seat, more trouble than I wanted to go to. >>

if you have a westy, you can swival the seat backwards, remove the 2 allen head bolts at the hinge between seatback and bottom, and recline the seatback so its supported by the dash.
