Seat opening with Wixom bags
« on: June 16, 2020, 01:16:00 PM »
Has anyone installed Wixom bags on their R65 and found a way to modify the seat so that it will either come off or still swing up?  Once the seat is on there isn't any clearance between the side of the seat and the rack.

I have Wixoms and I don't use the clips on the seat hinges. I just push the seat lock and the whole seat lifts off. The back hinge is a wiggly thing to snake out of there sometimes

When I put the seat on I don't even try to line up the pins on the hinges, that would be a real PITA. Also I don't dive under the seat much so it's a small inconvenience for me
