      SF848 Seat Cowl

      Have bought a seat cowl for my SF and for some reason it doesn't lock down. Really frustrating. It's as if the locking pole is not long enough. Bought second hand on eBay. All looks standard and appears exactly like the OEM one but for some reason it doesn't fit. Anyone with an idea or one for sale. Mine is a 12 plate, red SF848

      This should be a quick fix. Just grind the notch that goes into the lock lower. A good dremel tool should do the job. Good luck

      Try removing or trimming down the two small rubber bushings near the locking mechanism on the underside of the cowl.

      Thanks guys. Took the rubber bungs out near the lock and hey presto. Think I must be dementing. No idea why I didn't do that straight away.
