    Ok, so I dont know if i am just having a dumbass attack, or what, but for the life of me I absolutely cannot get my ergo seat to go in to the tall slot!

    I have shoved so hard the bike nearly fell off the kick stand! If I pop the back par down, the front just wings out to the side. The bobbins will slide up in to the low setting no problem, but short of a big hammer I am not sure what else to do?!

    Suggestions?

    Finally maneged to get it to slip in to the high slots, had to work the seat around for about 10 minutes to get it to finally slot.

    There is a somewhat unsightly gap between the seat and the plastics this way, so it may be built to make it harder?

    Unsightly or not, i think my knees will appreciate it :)

    The R has 2 seat height settings? Sounds familiar but I thought that was reserved for the S.

    The height setting is dependent on the seat itself, the slot that slides on to the bobbins for the S can go either up (pushing the seat lower) or down (pushing the seat higher). The stock R seat can only go down.

    The PP Ergo seat can go up or down, the same as the stock S seat.

    yes. s, r and rally can use s seats in high low position. oem r and rally bench seats only have one height. i bought s seats, seat to sargent and installed on the rally and use the driver seat in the high position.
