I’ve seen quite a few seats where the outer part of the seat lip is cutout where it would touch the motor case (as you’ve described). Not a big deal to cut it if needed. Before you do that, make sure you’re putting the seat in a good location– preferably per factory specs to start. If you don’t have the specs, then go for a comfortable position with you seated. Best to scale the kart after, but you may not have easy access to scales. In any case, comfort will be key to start and then you can play with moving it to get better kart balance. You may want to checkout this site… good info especially if you’re starting out. This page has installing a seat video:

Any luck Andrew?
I’m not sure what the back-end mounting points look like on a ’06 First Kart, but most will use the bolt/bushing kit here:
Last year I updated a 2005 tonykart with full width rear bumper. I recommend the quick disconnect mounting kit, though it does weight a tad more than the regular RLV kit:
Also, I was originally going to get the KG bumper (I think??) and Fast-tech told me they are too soft. I went with their recommendation and got the Righetti instead. It’s held up nicely.
I usually deal with Fast-tech or Acceleration karting for parts; they are very good/friendly, but I’m sure you can find these at your local shop if you prefer to support them.November 29, 2013 at 1:21 pm #16760
I think so. He hasn’t picked it up yet, so that’s why I’ve left it as pending. I’ll let you know if it comes back on the market.October 14, 2013 at 11:14 pm #12845
I’m not racing much these days and stopped doing the regional stuff. So I don’t need a backup motor anymore.
