Thinning out ht eseat pad?
I've been thinking I might want to thin out the seat pad on my RANS standard seat. The darned thing is not lightweight, but it is comfy. I have considered having about an inch cut off the thickness of it (from the bottom) with a bandsaw. That should lighten it considerably but still leave enough pad for comfort. Has anyone else out ther done something similar?
I understand RANS does/did sell a thin/light seat pad, but I cannot seem to find it on their parts pages. I just wonder how much less that one weighs, and how thick it is?
You can read a mention of the pad in the ITR post, Hotrodding Your Vrex, on the RANS website.
