2016 250xcw seat keeps falling off!

Recommended Posts

I'm very frustrated by now, bought a used 2016 KTM 250 xcw with 19 hours and have been doing some shake down laps around my track. The seat has fallen off 3 times. After the first time I inspected the threads, and noticed a few looked mangled. I used a tap and fixed those and after that, it fell out again. Threads were mangled again re tapped and then fell out on the next ride. The screw fits nicely in the seat, but feels like when the seat is installed, the screw is not going into the threads perpendicularly. This is where I feel the threads are being damaged and I'm not sure what to don't matter what washer combination with or without the aluminum insert there there is no way to line it up correctly. Has anyone else had this problem?

 

Thanks

I put a big square of duct tape over the screw to help prevent it from backing out.
