How to modify vulcan750 seat?

My girlfriend doesn't ride with me anymore. So I am thinking on how is the best way to modify the seat so I have more room. Is it as simple as cutting the padding in half and stretching the leather under? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Check my step by step OEM seat modification here:

It will take some time and patience but its worthwhile. Then, just take the finished product to a good upholsterer and enjoy!
