Actually getting the stock seat to the lower position is EASY... The first couple of times I moved my stock seat I made the same mistake a lot of people do. But after taking it off and on a couple of times I quickly realized my problem..
The problem is not getting the back part of the seat, for better word, seated. Firstly the stock seat in low position does not set in the same place as high, it’s about 3/8” back further (as you guys pointed out).
The how to: Use your fingers to kinda pull up and roll back the front edge of the BACK seat and push the front seat back and under the back. You can also use the palm or fist to kinda punch down and back on the front seat. After a bit of doing this I actually got to good at it and the seat will go back to far lol, then i’d Have to wiggle the seat forward to catch that top hook. Bottom line is; if the seat is actually in the right place you can just drop the front of the seat and it will catch the right hook on the tank and the right place on the latch...
And interesting side note, as some might already know, IF the seat is not latched your ‘check engine” light will come on, I found this out when staring my bike with out the seat on, with out it the engine light came on put it on and back off it went, did it a couple of times with the same results... Just food for thought...
That guys video is kinda funny tho...
