You can find some oh-so soft baby cushions for your princess-and-the-pea behind at any local motorcycle shop. The replacement oh-so-soft seats run about $450 

So much for the "Softail" huh?

Shifting prob

Your sinchronizers are worn. They might need replacement. A temporary fix wich can help shifting is replacing your actual gearbox oil with a synthetic lubricant. These lubricants help reducin noise and make shifting softer.

My bar stool has a very hard seat. How can I make it softer?

There are a few possible solutions to your problem thatdepend on the type of chair you have. Ifyou have a wooden or metal barstool with no fabric over the seat, I recommendeither placing a removable cushion there, or attaching one permanently withstrong glue. If your barstool is alreadycovered with fabric, the fabric is probably stretched and attached to the undersideof the seat with strong staples. Take astandard staple remover and pull out the staples. Then, insert any kind of soft fabric likecotton for example. Next, fold theexcess material back under the seat and attach it with staple gun staples. Make sure the staples are not reaching throughthe material because they could poke someone.

Hi I find my 4.8S porsche cayenne suspension is too hard and not comfortable for city driving, can you advise is there an option to change to more comfortable (softer maybe) suspensions?

Oh sure, you can get "softer" shocks. This will make the ride smoother. They make shocks for all different kinds of driving conditions and ride preferances. The best way to determine which shocks you need is to go into a parts dealer and just ask for help find softer shocks for your vehicle. Hope this helps.

you could adjust the rear shock to a softer setting the bike manual should show this adjustment, or have some seat foam removed by your local upholstry store

I need to get more cushie for my tooshie. how can I get a softer seat or add cush. to this one?

You can do either but I sugguest a new seat. The gel pads for existing seat feel strange and cost just slightly less than a new seat. It looks like you ride a cruiser so I would suggest the Sunlite Cloud 9 gel padded seat. It is extremely comfortable and is not overly expensive.

Hope this helps!
