FXR Diet

 Stock solo seat. Comfy but overstuffed, too much meat on it's bones.
 Take seat apart, easy.
 Seat pan, fits pretty much perfect, shouldn't need much trimming.
Seat foam. Too much material here. The area that the sharpie is pointing to is removed. I would have just shaved some off the top or bottom, but top is already shaped perfectly, and bottom is molded to fit pan, SO I'll try some out of the middle. Goal is to slim this seat down, and re-cover using the stock cover. Sneaky sneaky like. I'm going to cut the fat just a bit on the sides to match the frame/fender spear line... more later
