Sorry guys for the vague post Lumpectomy done ! 2516569736  a well known issue with the M800, (not sure about the C800) is the pain in the arse due to Suzuki putting a plastic lump right where your tailbone goes, so I took the seat cover off, and cut the offending lump out, then bolted a piece of high grade metal (pie tin!)in
 its place, put a bath sponge in the hole left by the lump and had to bend the seat bracket to fit, stapled the cover back on and the job was done, when I take it for a long run and will let you know how it is

I think the earlier 'C' had the lump but later ones don't, not sure when they changed it though?, a right pain in the arse apparently!  Lumpectomy done ! 852880

I rode the bike today, had to take it for an MOT (passed with no advisories  Lumpectomy done ! 1218875559) after the test I went for a 2 hour ride, no arse pain at all, before it was hurting after one hour, the difference is unbelievable, I advise anyone with an M800 to do the lumpectomy, your arse will thank you for it

Ah so that was what it was! Must admit I'm glad I had my seats altered by Tony Archer but they did not have the lump anyway so well done Andy!
