I had have a similar problem. My GL500i trike has a GL1000 aftermarket seat. It hooks into the OEM bracket in the back just fine, but somewhat like you I had not found a way to "mechanically" secure it in the front. So instead, I always put on a 254 pound weight on it just before each time I want ride. The seat stays put and the whole thing works quite well (not to mention being cheap)!Hi!
My CX650 Eurosport has a broken tab at the fuel tank and now, I can't secure the front part of the seat properly. Is there any way to secure or do I have to have it welded?
I was wondering how you guys are dealing with it.
Bob: He's not talking about keeping the seat from coming off of the bike. The Eurosport models are lay-down-on-the-tank style and you need to almost sit on the tank to reach the bars so the front of the seat extends up the sides of the tank. If the tabs that hold the extensions of the seat close to the tank break off (as they often do) the space between the extensions and the tank can become quite wide.

I don't think they'd be all that wide with my 254 pounds in place however!
