Pic requested

Can someone post or send me a pic of the flip up seat hinge area (under seat, left side of bike). I have an 05 VRSCSE. It seems like there might be something missing on my bike, and the parts book sheds no light on my quest to find out. I noticed on fuel stops on my first long bike ride last week that my seat would keep coming off when I tilted it up. It looks like there are two pins with missing c clips. well at least it looks like if there were clips on the available grooves the seat would not slide back and come off. Maybe I just missed this feature on all of my previous fuel stops.

Thanks, just curious

There is only a single long plastic clip that snaps in between the two hinge pins.
Here's the part # 52041-82
SEAT HINGE PIN
Don't ask me why its called a hinge pin. In the first description it was called a sleeve.

Ok, thanks for explaining, I saw the "pin" in the parts book, but that didn't seem to match what I have. The pins are fixed to the seat, but if I understand you correctly the "pin"in the parts book bridges the two.

If you have a piece of the old 3/8" water line that feeds the toilet tank, cut it too length and use an exacto or razor blade to cut a slit down it's length. I have several of these cut now and they work fine.

Heres a Pic (Item 6):

For what I know there are no "C clips" holding the "hinge pins" or "hinge shafts" if it's more appropriate to call for what they do. Like stated in the second post, there's a plastic tube-like part that snaps between the two hinge pins and avoids them to more front and back so the seat doesn't come off. Even without the plastic tube, the seat is not supposed to come off as easily as you describe. If you provide us a pic of YOUR underseat we might figure out if there's something wrong with it

If the OP has a Corbin seat mounted, they do use 2 small c-clips instead of the "plastic tube" to hold the seat in position.
Don't know their size unfortunately.
