It took me a long time to realize there was a "for sale" section.

This pic is from that ad

Maybe it's a matter of just getting used to it.
I fixed my stock seat by taking out enough staples to be able to lift the foam from the pad, and then tearing out small pieces of foam on the bottom side in the area where your butt goes. This maintained the original shape from above, but eliminated the slope when sitting. I learned that trick here probably 15 years ago.
