Well today was the day my GSXR was lowered. Finally, I was able to ride my bike . Rode on a rarely used street for @ 2 hours. S/O was giving me pointers. This road has a few twisty and a great places to learn to take off and stop.
All went well (Dog bones in center hole, front forks lowered) except for the seat shaving Seat is not smooth. The foam is all bumpy .
Any suggestions on the seat, would be greatly appreciated? Thanks

Take the cover off again & trim the bumps.
If you can find a thin piece off hard plastic and cut smaller than the seat.
Place it over the foam.
It will make it harder but smoothes out the look.
Cardboard will work till it gets wet!
It will never have the factory feel.
Something else you might want to try... Shave even more out of there, like make a square indent, then put one of those gel seat pads for bicycles or HD's right inside the seat.. will make it nice and comfy Also, in the future, you may want to check out one of the aftermarket seat manufacturers custom seat jobs... would be aorund $3-$400 or so, but i'm sure the final outcome would be amazing. Corbin or Sargent are the two largest seat makers/customisers I think.
