i guess i'm backward to most, but I'd like a stepped seat for the Pig that gives me a flat notch to sit in. looking at it, it appears that would require some pretty thin, high-density closed cell foam to work. And it would help to be just a touch wider.

anyone done something like this?

That seat looks like it would be a little bit on the comfort side! Kida like a Sport bike seat. How is the padding? Is it comfortable, soft, hard?

Actually, it is pretty comfortable. My other XR650L has the unmodified seat and I think the modified seat is more comfortable. There is still a lot more padding there than most crotch rockets have. The improved seat height was the primary goal, but the comfort is a bonus benefit. The other XR will almost certainly get the same mod this winter.

Take one stock seat.
Remove cover.
Stir carefully with electric carving knife.
Note: don't let your wife catch you carving on the foam with HER knife.
When you get the shape you want, take cover and seat to an upholstery shop.
