I was wondering if anybody tried to make the seat open higher? It does not open very big even worst with topcase in place. It does not like an easy task to modify it, because of the gas shock would not close if you get one any longer.
Disconnecting the top of the gas strut at the seat allows for the seat to be opened more. One can prop the seat open with a length of wood or similar, or use a bungee attached to the seat and the handle bars or similar.
I have a length of wood which I prop up under a seat between the underside of the seat and the plastic cover near to where the tool kit is stowed - works for me on my K7.
My Jetmax scooter seat doesn't have any device to hold the seat open. The seat is hinged at the front and rotates forward to rest against the handle bars providing very good access to under the seat.
Or you could buy the super seat support that I make ($75.00). Send self addressed stamped envelope to Mark Ashby 944B Liverpool Circle Manchester N.J. 08759 for picture & more details. Seat opens to 26in with this device & will safely support up to 50lb. Sorry I'm a complete computer clutz & cant post the picture on line.
