I can't afford a custom seat and need to make my gel seat more comfortable for my trip to Reno in a couple of months.
Has anyone shaved a seat? Can anyone in the area help?
Would ane custom seat mfgs do this for a cut rate?
Any help welcome..
Thanks in advance...

I carved up the seat on a previous bike. Its not all that hard, once you get into it. Use an old electric carving knife to cut off large chunks of foam. Experiment with sanding options to find what works for you. Only strong suggestion I'd make is to buy an electric staple gun. I spent hours, trying to get the seat cover back on using a manual gun. Went and bought an electric gun and was done in minutes.

This might give some pointers (not my work, I just found the links).
