I did this and all i can say is its awsome i can ride longer,
wrist dont hurt half is much
balls never hit tank now
best mod i have done for the 636
tools : staple gun-6 to 9mm staples will work -- needle nose pliers-sharp knife like steak knife
take the seat off
remove staples from the back of seat simple to do with like needle nose plyers.
take the cheap cloth off
now you will see the foam
take a vary sharp knife and shave it ,.dont cut just use the knife like you would shave your face with it at an angle then kinda fast back and forth you will see it start to shave.harder u push more u shave
after a few min ull figure out how to shave it its vary simple
shave the middle to the back of the seat do a bit at a time run out to bike set the seat on there sit on it see how it feels
if its still to hi shave more do this till u have it where u like it
then clean it up when ur ready shake off the foam get all the crap off the foam seat then reinstall the cover
staple back on
its simple as heck and only takes about 25 min to do from start to finish
you know what i have a corbin and gel seat i like the stock shaved seat the best its the most comfortable and lowest you would think its not but it is .the other seats no collect dust by far i love the stock shaved seat and could of saved tons cash doh
You know, I was thinking about doing this but in a little bit different of a way. Please forgive me since I don't know the terminology of the body part I am getting ready to describe.
OK, I noticed that when I sit on and ride the 636 It is extremely uncomfortable to that area between your balls and your butt(don't know the name of it) so I was thinking of just shaving down the center to form a sort of a "pocket" for that area to rest in. I know Bicyclists have seats like that and I figured it would be applicable to motorcyclists too. Has anyone ever done this? Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?
