I slapped mine on the windscreen with the provided Dual Lock. Been on there for two years. Hasn't popped off even when I crashed.

Just ride it without plates. If you get pulled over, tell the cop it's a big dirt bike and it doesn't need plates. That always works.

I get the same thing. Try the high setting in front and low in back. Although the Sargent isn't as much of a nut-cruncher as the stock seat, it still seems to slope forward...at least for me.
