What am I doing wrong? KLR Sargent seat

OK. got the seat and just spent an hour out in the freezing cold fighting this damn seat on the KLR and I have NO idea how to get it on. I know, I know....the same way the stock one goes on, but it just wont.

What the everloving FUCK! how is this seat outsmarting me?!?!?!?

Seriously. I wish I was kidding. HELP ME.

almost 100% sure its the correct seat. looks the same and everything as far as the mounts. it feels like the bottom "U" is too big for the opening.

seat

it's tricky getting the front in the right place between frame and tank
patience you can do it

stock seat is a problem sometimes when in a hurry.

Brother I go through this too... Drink a beer and look at it close. I think you are getting the tongue of the seat base too low (or high.) I'm not at home or I would go look.

I have to "punch" my front down while timing the pushing forward to get it in. Usually takes me a few trys. Kinda kinky right !
