seat not fiting on 2010sxf450- 1/2 inch short of stud and cup lining up

Recommended Posts

I bought a wrecked 10 xcf450 and maybe its the wrong seat or different tail frame, tank is on the frame stud and no way in hell I can get the seat forward enough to get the bolt in from under the fender . it would need to go forward another 1/2 inch , any ideas any body?

I have one from a 11 400 exc I would sell for a good price but if you not from the UK shipping would be expensive

Measure the rear to mid mounting point if you have the time mog ? i'll have to look this seat over for a number and see what the hell its supposed to fit . after the fork is in the tank the back is needing to go 1/2 inch more forward.

The tank, seat,tail frame all come with the bike but not mounted

I'm thinking measure it from the inside edge of the rear mount to the closest point on the inside of the fork that fits into the hole in the tank - inside length mount to mount?

I bent the mounting pin by putting a bolt in it and hammering it forward the tank then snapped the seat in place -after confirming that the seat and tank numbers matched the bike
