There have been two that I know of. One is on here and another local guy to me. Both had local upholstery (auto ones?) take the cover off, reduce the foam ramp in the button pocket area (that ramp which pushes you forward), and built up the front to keep you from sliding forward on stops also. It's that angled ramp area in the button pocket that is so annoying for me not only pushing you forward into a scrunched up seating position but putting pressure on my tailbone. I think just removing the ramp area and making a pocket you sit into rather than on would help greatly. I will try and see if I can find any photos of their seat mods.

You might send this guy a private message and ask. I think he has a modified seat. http://www.kymcoforum.com/index.php?action=profile;u=8665

It's hard to see in his photos where the seat was recovered. http://www.kymcoforum.com/index.php?topic=22651.0
