    Cut the buckles off and lace it on with paracord or bootlaces.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Exactly what I did. When you cut off the buckles, it will leave loops on the pad. Tie paracord to the loops.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    I cut the middle buckles off, and then allowed the plastic buckles on the front straps to stay outside the horn of the seat, but my seat is bent a bit more than most due to the xt350 tank. As I recall its easiest to adjust the straps loosely, and then once you install the seat they tighten up. But how far you put the pad forward or back, will affect where the buckles and straps fall. It can be done, and everyone has to find their own solution. Good luck. Tom

    All good pointers in here DMD, I played around with D's seat ( ) until I got it just the way wanted it, took some doing, but now that it's been on there awhile, it goes on and off much easier.



    Good Luck!

    Cut the buckles off and tie the straps with strips of velcro used to keep extension cords coiled. $2 solution from the hardware aisle at Walmart.
