I thought the seat that came with my kart from the previous owner did look pretty slanted to one side, but I didn’t notice that until taking pictures after my first day in it. I still haven’t mounted the new seat. I’ve been digging around looking for some neoprene on ebay. I’m feeling a little nervous about mounting the seat because I’ve never done it before and it seems like the process can vary depending on a few factors. I might mount it next weekend, but only if I can get up the nerves. I guess worst case I put a few extra holes in the seat… I’m also trying to figure out how many seat stays I should be using. The kart has 2 on each side right now, but I don’t know if that’s best for me or not.
