I've got a 04 750 and I want to reduce the seat height by cutting some of the foam out of the stock seat. has anyone else done this? Did it make the seat uncomfortable? and how much foam can you cut out of the seat? Thanks.

I'm short but I don't want to lower the suspension. I was told that this is a cheap way out of lowering the ride height. There seems to be plenty of cushion there and I can put up with a little less comfort to make the bike easier to handle in low speed situations.

I did it on my 05. Get a 3 in replacement blade for a utility knife and cut a little into the seat. Pull back the foam as you cut into it. This will allow you to have smoother results. I actually find the seat to be softer now because of the way I cut it. It doesn't have the angular drop off from the top of the seat.

Thanks for the replies. I'll probably just take it to an upholstery place as I don't want to butcher the seat myself and besides I don't have a staple gun or carving knife
