Corbin Seat doesn't lock down

I purchased a Corbin seat used from a forum member, but cannot remember who from. The thing does not snap down into the lock. I tried looking in and moving the latch, but it seems WAY off...

Anybody else have one of these?

Thankfully, Corbin is about an hour from me, so I am going to call to schedule a ride over to look at it...

Hated the way my seat cover flexed before the seat lock engaged. Ended up putting extra firm foam between the cover and seat. Pressure is now applied with hardly any flex.

Why are you pressing on the cover, I press mine on the hump in front of the cover. Works easily everytime.

Ohhhh, that's what the manual says. I did try the hump just in front of the cover before I made the modification. It didn't work at all for me.

If you think ours is bad, you should try the one on my ST1050.

I'm guessing the cooler weather makes matters worse. I've never had an issue with the clamping. Maybe cleaning off the OEM grease and try something else.
What I do hate is how the seat pops out at the tank when carving some bends.

True, but this one, the lock isn't even close to the latch!

I'll get over to Corbin in the next couple of months, then report back.
