Hi
Just received a corbin gunfighter seat

The piece that slots into the locking mechanism from the underside of the back of the seat won't click into the lock
No matter how hard I push the rear or adjust it, I can't get it to fit into the lock
Seems to be in roughly the right position, over the lock
It's almost like it not long enough?

Any ideas?

Cheers
Steve

I think others have had the same issue, too. Maybe they will be along presently.

Mine was the same way. It points towards the back of the bike too much, or at least mine did.

I took a two pound hammer and lightly tapped it towards the front until it finally fit straight down.

Mine went in the first time but I couldn't get it off the bike until I had to take a long screwdriver and a lot of cussing and forcing until it came off. That is when I was able to use a flashlight and look between the bottom of the seat and the bike to see what the problem was.

Now mine pops on and off with no problems

I had also the problem.

I filed slightly the piece under the seat that slots into the mechanism and finally it works.

Thoroughness and patience and it will be allright  Wink

Try adding a washer under the locking stud on the Corbin. Worked for me!

I had to shim my unscrewed the shaft put her washer underneath it and always good.

I assume it just unscrews?

Correct, unscrews and has long enough threads that adding a washer still leaves plenty of engagement.
