seat to tank gap

hi

I am noticing a gap between the seat and tank plastic covers.

I am sure I am inserting the plastic tab in the middle of the seat correctly and the two left and right hooks are in line and engages and the rear is correctly latched in.

but is this gap normal? is it supposed to be flush to the tank please?

thank you.

When you sit on it, the gap increases. Why are you so concerned about this?

hi
I am concerned because this does not look right and I am noticing some movement when I brake from the front of the seat.

please have a look at the pictures, I think I am not installing the seat correctly

I never have gotten the center prongs to fit under the metal tab. Any secrets here?

hi,
I cannot understand why they fit with such a gap.
to install the centre tab, you have to press from the middle of the seat, almost like bending it to get it to engage.

also does anybody notice movement from the front of the seat during braking?

thank you

I ride the low seat version, fits ok , does not move yet it pushes your b... against the tank which is quite annoying specially on long drives...
