    Shaving seat

    I got my seat shaved down for $150 at Pacific Auto Trim on 4th avenue by the ICBC claim centre. They did an awesome job.

    How much should shaving down the seat really adjust the height?

    Also, has anyone had their bike professionally lowered, and have advice on who to go to?

    thanks

    shaving the seat can easily be done by yourself if you are compotent with a bread knife. That's the knife of choice by many who have done it. And you'll need a staple gun to re-staple the covering.

    the absolute best tool is an electric carving knife, available for 25 bucks at london drugs, crappy tire etc. this makes perfect work of foam of any type, including closed cell foam used on race bodywork. an electric staple gun is handy, it does all the hard work for you, and not too much more $ than a good standard one. also, keep in mind that if you remove the stock seat cover, cut the foam down and reattach the cover there will be an air gap where the previous foam was missing.....unless you glue the underside of the vinyl with a foam compatible glue.

    got it done for $50 at ben-ray. excellent job. can't even tell it's been modified. it was shaved from the underside. dropped it about an inch.

    had a lowering kit from honda prof installed on the bike. worked it into the sale price but i think the kit was about $300.

    feel much safer now that i don't have to lean the bike to touch down.
