      Hello, i need help mounting this seat.

      It’s a swiss hutless shifter kart with a swiss hutless seat that i need to mount, along with the cdi box.

      I do have access to an air compressor, to drill the holes.

      I’m located right outside of Andrews Air Force Base.

       

      Call or text (as i do not regularly check my email here)

      Get a piece of 3/4 plywood about 1′ x 3′ and put it under your kart where the seat goes. Now for left to right you want the seat to be 1″ left of center so find center and mark it on the plywood. You might have to bend the left strut a bit, try not to kink it. Then put the seat on the wood and get in and slide/tilt around until you find a good spot as far as being forward and back but try to get more forward if it’s comfy. Mark the spot with a sharpy in the left seat strut hole. After you get that right just square up the seat and mark the right strut hole.
