    Gel Seat

    Has anyone solved the problem of the gel seat seat not latching correctly?
    I've had it for about 18 mths now and personally I'm sick of ****ing around with it!

    I've tried adjusting the latch, adding washers under the lock etc.

    ANY advice gratefully accepted.

    I got it to work by putting two washers under each bolt on the latch. that finally did it. One washer worked for the stock seat.

    Yeah thanks xactoman. This is what I've been doing. It works for a little while and then pops loose again.FRUSTRATING! I go through different washer thicknesses and combinations with varying results. It seems to me to be the "plate" in the latch itself not protruding far enough. I never had a problem with the stock seat.
