I , like most Hammer owners , wanted to keep the look of the stock seat....but needed a solution for a more comfy ride.
I would slide around too much on the stock seat, and would find myself always shifting / pulling myself towards the gas tank.
I have the touring seat....and like how it cradled my butt , and kept me much firmer in the seat pocket.
But I hated how it made the bike look.
So after some research , decided to have the stock seat reshaped.
I found meancitycycles.com ...and after emailing / talking with them, decided to send my stock seat to them to have it reshaped.
I wanted them to make the stock seat feel as close to the touring seat as possible......deeper in the seat pocket, with a firmer backing so I wouldn't slide back as much . They explained to me that with this seat....they do not have much to work with....but could definitely get me closer to what I wanted. Very decent people to deal with , and the turnaround was reasonable if you preset a date with them. Total price for me was under $150 , with shipping both ways.
Check out their site ...they have many different options / combinations of what can be done to most any seat. I went with a simple reshape / memory foam added.
The result .
Improved over stock.
The cowl portion untouched.
You would probably not know there was any work done to the seat at first glance ....by just looking at it , unless you had a stocker right next to it...then you would see a definite deeper cut in the seat.
Of course ...how it feels / works for me is the real benefit.
I haven't changed back to the touring seat since .....
I can ride comfortably , without stopping or soreness for the full 120 miles a full tank of gas gets me until the gas light comes on !!
