  • new seat is a rocken, something missing here?

    I noticed my new ed seat is rocking and after further investigation where the middle row of bumpers hit something is missing. I am assuming a rubber spacer is missing right behind the battery box. What are they called and where can i find them? Click image for larger version

        Maybe you don't have the rear seat tongue inserted into the receiver in the frame.

          Shores is right. I have the same issue sometimes. You need to really push the back down when installing the seat to make sure the tab on the seat goes into the notch on the bike. It not the seat will lock down up front but it will wobble side to side.

            Put a little fur around it and try again.

              nope, i put the rear of seat in and before i lock it in in pulled up on the back and the tab is seated in fully. The rubber bumpers on the back is slightly compressed while the mid one look new, so i am going to add spacers to schem it up until it hits evenly and then see how it feels.

                Maybe your Butt is a bit crooked, Herrindude.
                Seriously tho... what's the Bottom of the Seat look like?

              I have an Ed seat too. No problems ever with mine. If it would help, I could send you some pics of the bottom of my seat and my frame where the seat sits for comparison. Does your ED seat have an ED seat base or a Yamaha base?

                Maybe the ed manufactured front latch U is oversized somehow and won't let the seat down far enough in the front, Iv'e heard of them being to short before and hard to unlatch. Contact Mike Couch the USA dealer or George the owner in Canada.

                  I guess I got lucky. Mine is rock steady and easier to unlatch than my stock seat was.

                Call the mfger. Maybe you got the wrong seat or hardware.

                  The seat is an ed base and the front and rear bumpers are slightly compressed and the middle row look brand new. I took plastic spacers measuring 3/16 and bolted them on the middle row. Now she sits tight and no rocking, thanks for the help
