Is there a knack to fitting the seat cowl clips? They seem to sit a little proud. Only way I can secure my seat is by removing one of the clips. Not ideal, but the cowl finish off the bike nicely



quick image upload

All the clips are same for 89-95 and share the same part number. Not seen them sit that high. Iíll take a picture of mine in the morning

Out with a big hammer and the dremel. Genuine clips are no longer available anywhere.

Hereís a couple of photos of the brackets on my RU, the angle is different to yours, mine are about 110 degrees, yours are at a right angle, maybe thatís the problem?

Here's some better photos of the angle of the clips. Mine look identical to creedxup's. Ignore the white insulation tape, that's there just to protect the new paint work. big grin

Did you get them from stig?

Yes I think you need to change the angle a bit and then maybe elongate the holes 👍

This is bizarre as all the clips are the same part number. I can swap the clips for you for some with a different angle

Thanks for the offer. I think I should be able to manipulate the shape to get them to fit better. I know the manufacture and quality control is out of your control. It is admirable that you get these made for club members.
