    Seat fitment.

    When I bought my xb12s it came with two seats, an SCG and what appears to be just a standard height lightening seat. The fitment on the standard seat is terrible compared to the scg. Does anyone know a fix for this? I assume one was probably stored most of its life and Iím guessing it deformed in storage. Iíve tried pulling the seat into shape with some straps and letting it sit for a few days but that didnít seem to make a difference.

    I donít mind the scg seat, but the standard seat is more comfortable for me so Iíd like it to look a little better.

    You should be able to look under the pan and see that the front seat hook is in place. Otherwise some just do that and yours is better than others. Maybe you could use a heat gun and tweak it a little.

    Ready to sell me those plastic yet??

    Yeah I checked to make sure both seats hook on the front properly when installed. I was afraid that might be the case. I may try welding up a frame to strap it down to and pull it back in shape with some heat.

    I donít think anyone would want to pay my price for these plastics

    hello, the same thing happens to me with my buell scg, it doesn't fit well, I had to mold a little with heat gun.

    the seat should fit with the side attachments and then has a plastic end that should be inserted into a hole where the rear shock absorber is.

    and it still won't be perfect
