My '96 R 1100 RT has a Corbin heated front and rear seat on it. Not my favorite, but it is what it is. My question is, does anyone know how the heating elements are in the seat? I am thinking about shaving a few spots of the seat and recovering it and I just do not want to cut the heating element. I am guessing the heating element is a wire that runs thru the foam and heats up like a heat blanket does. I can shave the seat foam I think unless the element is near the surface. There is a huge lump right under my berries that make my nads go numb after a 100 miles or so. There is also kind of a berm around the back of the seat that is too wide or wraps around too far under my thighs. I just want to trim those spots some and do a leather/suede seat cover or something.
