Why is it uncomfortable?

I thought the Forza seat was really wide until I discovered my ass was also really wide also.

I'm looking at new set options as well. I'm just under 6 feet with 31 inch legs, but I would be far more comfortable up higher and back further. I have pulled the backrest off and added some padding for both me and my passenger, and we are more comfortable. It looks pretty terrible and if we get caught in some rain it will be unpleasant, so I want to find someone to do some shape modifications and then recover what they do.

Another small inexpensive or even free change is to change the handlebars. I am short so I tilted mine down a few notches. It is a little strange at first but I have more of a sport bike leaning forward posture now. Some have replaced the bars altogether.

Or try thickly padded underwear. Some of the flat bummed girls wear them for more curves! And I thought padded bras were cheating.

Cycling shorts might be better than girls knickers...

The exhaust is the Narrow Reflex 2.0, right? Have you mounted it with catalyzer and without tuning the cvt? If yes, have you noticed a drop in performance at low rpm?

Looks a lot less expensive than the route I'm taking. We spent about three hours at an upholstery shop while they cut and carved foam to match the Admiral's and my lardasious butts. They will now install gel pads and memory foam, and then sew up a custom cover. I'll be higher and back further, and the Admiral will still be able to see over me. Pictures will follow when completed, but here is a start:
