    I just recreated the issue on my bike. There’s a middle set of tabs on the subframe bracket that your seat doesn’t appear to be slid under. This will create the gap.

    now let’s see a picture of the rest of the bike. I’m curious to see that graphic and frame combo. :)

    Yes under the seat there are 2 holes that have to slide forward along the frame rails and hit the hooks in order to sit flush.

    As an FYI, it’s a pain in the a** on my ‘Berg to catch those two rails just right. Always a fight…

    Replacing the oem lead acid battery with a LiFePO4 battery makes fitting seat much easier, in my experience, as you gain a bit of space under there.

    Just put a couple of pk screws into the ends of the plastic hooks, to extend the lenght of the hook
    Not pretty but holds the seat to the bike better

    Don't forget the two fins that fit on the inside of the frame rails just next to the battery
    If they are allowed to sit on the rails they will bend and push the seat up and not allow it to go all the way down

    Could also be that your seat cover is too tight and pull the seat in a more curved (smaller radius) shape?

    Seen it with me repolstered seat few years ago.

    A little jaunt last weekend. First time to ever experience the bike flame out? Only did it once though. I had fallen off and the bike slightly inverted off the trail till i could right it. The bike had spilled a bit of gas during this episode so I figured it might have dislodged something somewhere? It ran well the remainder of the day.
    Good times!

    Good times for sure! It was humid that day! It had rained previously just enough to make the soil conditions perfect, the roots slick as hell, and the air like riding in a greenhouse...

    Was not a flame-out. There's a tip-over sensor located under the battery compartment and it will shut off bike after a couple of seconds of laying on it's side.

    Was just about to say this. You sure it wasn't just the tip sensor, @400psi ?

    Sorry I wasn't clear at all in my post. The flame out occurred about ten minutes later after I had fallen. I was on some two track and moving at a decent clip and then it was like I ran out of gas. Coasted to a stop but then it fired right up. It didn't have any further problems so I had thought maybe the fall had dislodged some gunk and briefly blocked fuel somewhere?

    It does have an upgraded battery that's a bit smaller

    Nice graphics and coil spring to match.
    Is that a ‘12 model or has the frame been painted?

    Welcome to No.Va...expect delays
    Are the 2 front claws engaged in the seat ? It appears they are not. I had to space mine out a little w some washers to make it fit tight and not pop out on hard hits.

    The Berg rides again. The radiator leak was a broken clamp I thought was tight. Thing runs great. So happy with all that work I did. Now a week of mostly dirt around Humboldt and Mendocino counties is in order. Leaving tomorrow.
