I love the look of the corsa seat. To my eyes the proportions of the slope and the body are perfect and the price is right compared to other slope back seat options out there.
The only thing I don't love is that gap.
I have one sitting on my PX right now. I've tried to go through older threads to see if there are any fixes. Only one I came across from Tierney, but he doesn't go through enough detail.
I don't need it to sit flush, but I'd like to close the gap a little. Without the seat pin it sits closer and is more acceptable. From what I can see the rear pin is the only thing holding up the seat.
Does anyone know if there is a shorter M8 seat seat pin? Currently using the one that comes with the sip rear adapter.
Another option that might help is if anyone knows of or knows someone who can fabricate another rear adapter plate?
The one that sip sent out is not great quality. I've already had someone cut of the things that stick out of the sides since I have the gas sensor and the little wing things were in the way. I also had to have the hole re-thread as it was to small.
Problem is that it's flat, so when it's mounted, it sits at a slant from the top of the gas tank to where the original seat pin would sit. That cause the seat pin to sit a little higher.
I was thinking of one that is stepped so that it sits flush to the body.
Any other ideas welcome.
SoCalGuy's bike were you can really see the gap.
Tierney's bike with a more acceptable gap.
