Is that "LC4 Mafia!" copyrighted, or can we all use it?

James... you need to explain to 'da peoples what your doing with the shape and foam now. I tried to explain the shape and feel, but you're the maker... so get up on the podium and 'splain the latest version to the folks.

That means I'd have to send my new cover back for both the "mafia" affectation and the "front-of-the-seat tampon holder"......

I think you've got the same foam/shape as mine. Quite the sphincter cuddler, eh?

It's almost big enough for a Hot Pocket and a pickle.

I notice you went with less of a slope fill or more of a slope this time, any reason why?

The rallye pocket is for your event registration - its flat. You can put your licence and registration there for easy access. "Take them outa the pocket sir."

And guess what? he made a seat that is lower and flatter at the same time!!!
You just can't see the flatter (butt bucket) part because the suede hasn't conformed to the shape of the foam yet. Hard to explain... you'd have to see it in person, or maybe James could explain it a bit better... James?

Wow... that is really sweet looking. Mucho classier Creeper... er, I mean Godfather. Not for nothin', but you'll be pleased to know we got the business down here in So Cal squared away.

Now I REALLY can't wait to see the magic he's going to do to mine!

James... how's it coming?? No rushing of course... just checkin'.

Creeper, post a ride report on that baby as soon as you can! I spoke with James and he's going to do the low seat for mine. Would love to have some feedback on yours.

Ride? come on... everybody knows I don't actually ride 'em... I just clean and polish 'em.

Don't worry... I'll throw a bucket of sterile dirt on the bike and make up a nice report about a fantastic ride later on... honest.

O.K, O.K ! Basically what me and my staff are trying to do here is create a seat that somewhat keeps the original design and change the ergonomics from the inside. This of course would be for riders that are under 5' 11".
The ergonomics have to change again at this point because you would need a taller seat (think seat to riding on peg transition) and of course the longer inseam riders need to have a shorter stance to capitilize on this, taller bars, etc.

Essentially I'm sculpting out a somewhat level flatter riding area and changing the foam to something more comfortable. Optically it's hardly noticeable because the material covers a lot but when you sit on it you feel the leveling off. No more riding in what I call the MX dip and so for us men our guys aren't going east to west and the stock dome shape eliminates preassure in the buttocks.

Too lower the seat on the 640 is challenge because you have a dome shape underneath, so taking off more foam from the seat is not an option.
You really don't want to do this anyway's because a low seat can make it harder to stand on the pegs, it's hard on your knees!
For riders under 5' 6" I recommend lowering the suspension if height is an issue to your safety, either that or ride more to gain confidence on taller bikes.

I don't like doing bucket seats because they hinder your stance to and fro while riding on the pegs, dangerous if you ask me!
A slightly wider seat can be made for those who insist, but I would only add an 1" to each side and taper the bulk for easy peg riding transition.
This usually is enough without making your bike into Goldwing.

For those of you looking for bucket seats I strongly recommend Rocky seats, he's a great guy who makes a great product! I've taken his work apart and he does nice work.
