KTM SXC 625 - tank swap - Someone know the correct parts?
Ok... Trying to get some extra distance out of the SXC and well, it's not working out quite right....
Here's my unfortunate situation:

Tank mounts wonderfully.
This seat is not looking quite right. It seems to pivot on the mounts and needs to be flexed a lot more than it should to mount to the tank and the subframe.
Actually, the subframe doesn't seem to hold the seat particularly well. There are gaps. Once I put the tank on, I can get it on but I'm bending the tank, have gaps and is generally yucky - all of which tells me something's wrong.
Here are the pics:

Here are the gaps once the tank is installed:
Researched quite a bit before buying so I'm a little surprise...I accept that what I have may not work, but I'm torn between trying to getting it right (at a cost) vs. selling it off and living with the low range. I actually like the stock SXC ergos incl. the seat so no big loss other than fuel capacity.
What do you all think?
