It's not a trick, that's how it's supposed to be fitted.

I managed to get mine in but it was very fiddly and I've just left it in the low position. I did find it easier when I moved the helmet loop cable in its little rubber strap as low as it would go.

I wondered if the helmet lock thingy was getting in the way so I took that out and still couldn't do it! I must be particularly inept.

Initially I felt foolish asking the question but now I feel strangely reassured that others have struggled too. The joy of forums.

If I still can't do it I'll buy the lower seat!

Looks bloody horrible in that position with a big gap around the front of seat.

I can't say I disagree. But if I like it in that position I'll see what the low seat option from Honda is like because that'll look "normal"! Bl**dy OCD...
