There are several after market seat builders. Since you are in California, check into Corban. Drive over to their factory and have them fit you for the perfect fit.

You will never regret it.

A warm welcome to the site dan123abc, good to have you on board. :waving:

Just a suggestion, might be worth trying with a cusion under you, or piece os spare foam, to see what height suits you best and then approach a custom seat manufacturer or upholsterer to get your seat made or the present one modified.

I am just about your same size and weight, I have the Heartco Pro-Tour, for four years now and am extremely happy with it. It is made for my dimensions and is perfect after 4-8+ hour rides. You are welcome to give it a try if ever in the Ventura area.
When making the investment in a custom fit saddle, it is good to have an idea of what you are getting for the $$$.
As mentioned above... some like the Corbin. Butt for my butt.... the Corbin was like a park bench....too hard!

One more thing to keep in mind...... Be sure to check if the custom saddle maker can or cannot incorperate the heated feature you may have with the OEM! There has been a post somewhere that the Honda heating was installed in a new saddle by the owner. I just cannot recall where that was!
