Sargent seat difficult to remove
I've put a couple of thousand miles on my Sargent seat but it's still very difficult to unlatch. If I push down VERY hard in the right spot, it'll unlatch, but I can see how someone could break or bend the key trying to get it off. I've confirmed there's no interference with anything underneath (tool kit, Battery Tender leads, etc.). I've read that this is common with the Sargent seats for the Versys -- so has anyone found a solution? Shave down the rubber bumpers slightly? Shim the seat hook?
