I know this is one of those touchy subjects but i have my bike lowered alil more then an inch right now because I ride my girl on the back alot and feel alot more comfortable with her back there if i can be flat footed. But i want to raise it back up to stock because i was thinking of going to some track days, and also getting tired of avoiding speed bumps. So my question is how did everyone else shave the padding out of their seat? And how many inches could i take out of it without it being too uncomfortable of a ride? Thanx for any help.
