The 1st is that it has cracked laterally between the 2 rubber supports above the battery. I have "fixed" this with fibreglass and by moulding a solid rubber support which sits on the battery bracket , straddles the wiring and fully supports the seat.

The other seat problem, which is baffling me, is the next set of rubber supports either side of the airbox that sit on the frame. The seat has spread apart and is now wider than the frame. The rubber supports no longer are on the frame.

Both these problems have occured with the stock seat and KTM power parts all day seat I purchased

Have anyone else heard of this?
Does anyone have a solution?
Has anyone or no anyone who might have a solution?
Not personally - might need to talk to the bloke on the Wunderfest thread who fessed up to weighing 300lb ...
