The only cure for it my dad and grandpa found over the years was another seat. At 6'4" I generally go that route so that 2 up riding with my wife or son is easier on my back, etc.

You may be able to put 2 spacers 1 on each stud between the bracket and seat where it bolts to the front of your seat. Then you can add a spacer to the front of the bracket between the seat Tee and the bracket.

An OEM front buddy seat bracket should angle up from the t-bar to the seat. Did somebody flatten it out to lower seat height? Maybe the bracket isn't OEM? Just ideas.
