Anyone know if the 350 and 400 flow the same amount?

Be cautious about "sewn" seats.  Most vintage factory pattern "stitches" in the seating area of the seat are actually fake.
They are heat "printed" so as not to pass moisture to the foam thru the stitch holes.
The perimeter piping is often stitched, but the seating area is embossed with a pattern that looks like stitching.
Sewn motorcycle seats may pick up water and when you sit on them your pants will get wet from water passing back thru the seam.
There may be an effective way to seal stitches, but I don't know how long it will last.
Real stitching looks better, so if your bike never gets wet with rain or dew then it won't be a concern.
Strong sun will, over time, weaken most thread (except Tenara).

machivmotors what a nice guy , his game is to rack up the prices with multiple bids from fake buyers and screw the winner on shipping like $75. for mailing a 250 gr plastic side cover .

I'm trying to guess if it's as long as an original seat, or slightly shorter, opinions appreciated.
I may pay a local guy to try and replicate it. It looks so much more "padded" than many of the available aftermarket seats.
If so, should the original pan be used?

Yeah it's a personal choice, there's the letter of the law (the rulebook) and the spirit of the law (what the thought was behind the rules when they were written), "could" I do it yeah probably but to me the spirit of Unfaired Modified production is with no aerodynamic aid in front of the rider. And honestly I'm just really pleased with very much of the bike the way she sits right now. She really handles sweetly. Now the seat will be getting modified because I still think there's some mph to be had there (and it's definitely within the rules..).
