My suggestion is two-fold.
As far as your seat is concerned, send it to MeanCycles and have them re-do it. It will be both more comfortable and place you lower; if that's what you request.
I would also suggest lowering the bike at least an inch, maybe two. Keep in mind, the lowering drops it at the rear of the bike. It will lower the bike more at the seat than at the floorboards, so the added scraping will be less than you might think.
But even if they do scrape, so what? There are tabs on the boards that are designed for that reason. Your comfort level in touching the ground is more important than the boards.
Keep the Shiny Side Up!
