Default What would you do?

So i have a mk2 bandit 1200 frame and tank and will be fitting the pretty common ducati monster/evo1098 seat unit. There will be a new welded in subframe at some point also.
I have been advised to make a "goalpost" type bridge at the back of the tank so that the seat lugs can be secured at the front of the seat. The seat is a bit narrower than the rear of the tank.
So...do i taps some calculated dents into the tank to allow the front of th seat to be closer to the rear of the tank or somehow trim away and possibly bollocks up the plastic seat?

I'd probably cut the tabs that stick forward off the front of the seat. I bet if you do that, the seat can be stretched to fit around the tank.

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

By angling the seat rear upwards it does lessen the gap at the front...so that will help. Have to see what would be gained through trimming the tabs. I have had the bandikat thread open for a few days now...will look to see how you did your seat Yan. Thanks.

wondering whether it is viable/safe to maybe screw a couple of L brackets to the front sides of the seat from underneath that could bolt to the insides of the top frame rails? Or will the ABS plastic not be sufficiently strong to take a bracket being screwed to it?

If you knock the tank, you'll let off any plating on the inside and may open yourself up to it rusting from the inside out.

I'd modify the seat.
