But I really shaved it...
The seat and a memory foam from walmart:
shaving06 fw
shaving05 fw
shaving04 fw
I didn't take the whole cover out to make it easier to put it back...
shaving03 fw
shaving02 fw
I was lazy to keep shooting pics...
The hole got to the middle of the two dark circles...
Then I replaced the carved foam with memory foam from the pillow in the pictures...
shaving08 fw
I did it to lower the seat height but it didn't lower as much as I thought :eh:
But at least I have a much more comfortable seat

Yes Robert, I put memory foam instead the stock foam and the seat became softer and because memory foam compresses more it lowered the height.

The memory foam was supposed to be in the top not the bottom but if you see Pic # 4 there was no way I could replicate the shape ofthe original foam and I didn't want the seat to look crappy.

Use a 80 or 36 grit air grinder to shape foam. You can use it on memory foam,but it gums up alot. Memory foam also takes it own basic shape. Very comfortable on a long ride though.
