Could the numb ass be caused by the high rebound setting or is it the useless factory seat?
Buying a new seat is a leap of faith where the saying "You bet your sweet ass." truly applies. I went for the C&C solo with gel and leather and was surprised that it was much firmer than the Honda OEM seat. I was also surprised that I could go all day with no discomfort whatsoever. I'm thinking it's the shape more than the 'padding' . As the leather broke in and the gel adapted the C&C felt more comfortabe each time I sat on it but still stiff in contrast to the '50 mile' OEM.

The shock height adjustment has no effect on comfort; it's strictly for load compensation and ground clearance. I ride with the damper setting at 50%. I weigh probably 220 or so dressed in leather plus my bags and gear add another 40 lbs at least and maybe 40 more when traveling. Heavier guys will not feel as much change in damper settings.

Good thinking man. Saved you from buying a new seat. I may do that.

The large black knob adjusts height. From the halway mark which is were it is set from the factory, all the way down is 1/2 inch lower.
