I am rebuilding the stock seat on my 1100. I have removed the exhaust valve below the seat and reconfigured/flattened the pan so I can move back without moving up. A test ride tonight after the first go at reshaping was awesome. If you are six feet+ I would highly recommend this. Now my knees actually go into the tank recesses, and I just fit better. Since the guy who is doing the upholstery is away for a few weeks I have some time to find some inspiration for the cover. I have a red frame and would like to incorporate a little red in the upholstery. Anyone have pics of some cool custom seats??
