    bobbed and bendy ???

    What is a "bobbed and bendy" seat? Doesn't appear to be a brand name.

    Thanks, Will

    Not a brand name for sure, I'm a little hesitant to even associate my forum name with the job I did on mine!

    Basically, when you fit an XT350 tank to your TW, you have to make some changes to the TW seat pan.

    The "Bobbed" part is shortening the tongue of the seat so it fits into the indentations of a Clarke XT350 tank.

    The "Bendy" part is notching some of the plastic ribs on the underside of the seat pan to allow the tongue of the seat to flex upwards and mate to the profile of an XT350 tank (Clarke or OEM).

    Some explanation from wiser members than I:
