My version of this mod.

I tackled this mod tonight. How can anyone ride for long with less than 1/2" of foam at your tailbone? I documented my steps, so maybe it will help someone.

I cut an old road sign (legally obtained from the scrap bin at my work) to 4.5" x 10". With the original mount still attached I started marking, bending (in my vise) and test fitting. Once it was where I wanted it I marked the end to match the existing mount and finished my cuts. I pre-drilled a few holes in the plate for screws to help hold it to the seat as the glue cures. I'll replace the screws with short rivets later.

Next, I removed the original mount and used my Dremel to remove the lump - cutting just at the edge of the lump. Careful as you get to the edge of the seat as the plastic is only one layer thick and you could easily cut into the "leather" of the seat.

I then cut a piece of foam to fit close to the right size - I left it about 1/8" thicker than needed - I got excited at this point and forgot to take a picture...

Next, I used industrial Shoe Goo all around the edges of the hole I had cut. I then placed the plate down and used screws (in the pre-drilled holes) to pull the two parts together. Now I wait until tomorrow and replace the screws with the rivets.
