I already have a low seat but I'd like to remove the cover on the stock seat and try shaving the foam to un-widen the area where my privates extend downward. I own other bikes that have almost the same height but feel lower because they're shaped different.

Even if I screw it up I still have the low seat.

Any opinions?

I think you it's a bad idea to cut the foam in the original seat as it may loose a comfortable cushioning ability. I'd recommend you to keep the original seat foam and make a fully custom seat at a shop.

A disc sander works well for this sort of task. I've used mine on the seats of three bikes now--including the AT. For my AT, I removed material at the aft end in order to remove the slope. For each seat a layer of upholstery batting was added. The sanding makes a mess; so, be prepared for that.
