shaveing your seat is simple

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

why oh why didnt i do this before[:eek:)][8]

Ok so how did the end result look. Does the seat look out of place now? I would really appreciate it if you could post a pic.

WOW [:M6] I am not sure which one I would have first, the girl or the bike. Maybe both would be just fine but anyways how does the seat look after you shaved it? Can you post some pics?

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?

You mean the "taint"?
All you have to do is stop shaving the hair that runs from your crack to your sac, and voila, extra padding!!! :D

Seriously, never really noticed any discomfort there. Depending on my riding position, whether in the front or rear of the seat, I've never experienced that.
