just sent a 20 inch back way bigger than i imagined i'm 5'11 240 and thought i need a big seat returned for the 18.5 pro street seat i went to summits store in dallas and they had a 15 inch on display and that did not fit me. not sure if this helps. also make sure you have room in the car the 20 inch didn't even really fit inbetween the trans tunnel and our roll cage. but an amx is kinda small.

I'm 6'1" and 260 and my 18" Kirkey seat, with the padded upholstery fits great.

David,

When we were ordering our Kirkey seats, I just used the wood stairs in my house and a tape measure. When sitting on the steps wearing jeans, I had my Dad measure my hip width from the wall. It was just under 18" so I ordered an 18" seat. With Kirkey vinyl cover on the seat, I am snug in the seat and secure. Additionally, here a link about measuring yourself for Kirkey seats. https://pitstopusa.com/p-4240-kirkey...uidelines.html

Good Luck,
Andy
