I tried out a local custom seat shop. Wanted more comfortable ride on my 08 1200c. He recommended cutting 1" stock foam out and replacing with closed cell foam. He did not like the Gell. Well I did it and the ride is awful. Butt hurt after 10min and gets bad after 30min. THis cost me 150.00 . Dont know what to do but am going to call the guy and find out if he can do anything. I am guessing the seat is ruined.
