    The "potato chip" seat from Pacific Coast Star is more narrow, lower, and a bit firmer than the stock seat. It is also seamless. Bear in mind that my bike is a 1300, so that's all I can compare it to. Basically, you swap your stock seat for their re-worked seat. In my case, they sent me the potato chip seat and I sent them my stock seat. Check their website for details. I'm happy with the seat. Here are a few before & after pictures...

    Hope this helps...

    Just take your seat down and have some foam trimed off the sides and contour to your liking. After all it's just a seat cover on it.

    I really like the looks of that seat. I could see parting with $150 for one myself. Maybe this is a dumb question, but why do they call it a Potato Chip seat?

    Want to have your stock seat re-worked? Try meancitycycles.com It's a business about 25 miles from where i live. It has a great reputation on the honda forums and i think some on this forum have used them. My friend just had his seat re-work and memory foam installed and he is please. Cost about 100 dollars

    Called the potato chip because it's flat like a chip, but has the curves also like a chip. And yes, quite firm due to less padding. But if you could find one with gel inside instead of foam, that may be good looking without giving up comfort on longer rides. If your stock seat is anything like mine, you have not experienced comfort yet.

    Went to the mean city cycles site. Just for a seat mod. it run about 40 bucks. The 100 bucks mod. is done with memory foam. They posted that just a seat mod. they could lower the seat upto 3 1/2" depending on the seat pan.
