I've heard of upholstery shops being able to cut part of the foam out and replace it with a gel insert for comfort. I don't see why they couldn't cut part of the foam and just sew it back up like that

i shaved the seat on my busa. not hard.... just do a little at a time. big +1 to racerx comment about shaving where the legs touch. if not you'll end up making a bucket seat and make it harder to touch the ground.

A staple gun and an electric carving knife is all that is usually required unless you are going to trim the edges of the seat pan.

I didn't think about that, the fabric is generally just stretched and stapled to the underside where it isn't visible huh?

Electric carving or fillet knife does a nice job of cutting and shaping the foam.
