I have my seat on the low position and I don't see the gap you talk about. Are you sure the front catch on the seat is engaged in the clasp on the tank. When I put mine on I have to push forward on the tip of the seat so it catches the clasp.
I'm with you. I don't like that gap or that "Step". I've not found anything to hide/cover it up. I've kinda just grown to "ignore" it...
Fster - Yes I have my seat installed properly. I know what you speak of. If its not installed correctly its "off to one side" OR you can easily pull on the front of the seat if its not properly latched....
I must admit the dealer tried to show me the low position but had not locked it in properly. I had the passenger seat off and it was only then that it dropped into the real lower position. It seemed secure and a good bit lower. Is it possible to get the rear of the seat in the lower position and the front on the higher. That would give a third sear height.
If it really bothers you, you could get a gel sticker made to exactly fill the depression. It would cost about £50 but once the sticker maker had made the graphics and the mold (mould in the UK) they would come out at about £10 each. I had some Triumph ones made by AtoZ stickers in the Westgate Road in Newcastle. I think you'd have to specify fairly thin gel and aggressive adhesive for it to go round the bends and hold in place
Suggestions for what it should say? (What about 'Tackle Protector'?)
Or maybe cut some StromGrips up to fit. I have some I bought for my NC750. It would serve no real function but would like like it did
As the bikes increase in popularity... It wouldn't surprise me one bit if some after market farkle maker came up with something. This is exactly the sort of thing you can expect from Touratwerp or SW-Motech.
