planalp I really don't think SCUMBAG can be beat.

CheapBassTurd It needs work.
My idea doesn't fit quite right.

Tried to be phunnie.

TUB Tossed Unnecessary Bolts?
RASTA Removed Annoying Steel Torqued Article?
"Free Seat" Club? LOL Just yank it.

planalp I hereby propose we replace NBITS with SCUMBAG. NBITS sounds like a dry dog food.

SCUMBAG has a nice ring to it.......

CheapBassTurd I took all my bolts out to save weight.


Yes, it'll wiggle just a bit. You can easily cram a spacer or rubber piece in there
if it's too annoying.

I'm a member of the no-bolt acronym club too on the seat.
Seat considering unnecessary mounts, but all's good (SCUMBAG)

klr4evr I was in the NBITS Club until I bought a Rick Mayer seat. Now I'm using allen head bolts because I'm scared someone will rip off my seat if there are no bolts to keep it there.

Official Acronym: NBITS. Pronounced "Ni-bits," not "N-Bits."

When I put my seat into the prongs on the tank, it seems to move slightly. Not much movement, but just not a tight fit. It is definitely connected, and the rear bolt holes line up OK.
If you're talking about the plastic prongs that connect to the tank, mine allow some wiggle room, too. No damping unless you're butt's in the seat.
