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:


Good luck and have fun!
