    Is there any way to adjust the catch on a seat?

    I have a 97 SeaDoo GS that I bought used and noticed on my last ride that the seat popped out of the front latch. When I had it home...I looked under the seat and nothing looked out of place. I don't see any adjustment to move the metal tongue (or whatever its called) forward to engage it more with the U-shaped part it goes under to secure it.

    Anyone ever have this problem or know how to fix it? I thought maybe welding another 1" or 1.5" to it would work...but I'm no welder :P

    Thanks for any advice (that relates to this problem).

    There's no adjustment on the front of the seat, I think you can loosen the rear pin and adjust it front / rear and up / down if needed.

    I'll have to look at that assembly when I get home. I thought I looked and didn't see any adjustment there...but I may have missed something.

    Thanks for the quick reply though!

    Exactly ... and that may allow you to latch the seat farther forward, fixing your issue. I loosened and adjusted my rear seat latch pin position and height a couple times to get it to latch the way I wanted it to.

    There was ZERO adjustment on it. However...the hole that the rear post goes through on the grab bar was just thick plastic...so I drilled out the hole towards the front and gained at least a 1/4". Better than nothing I suppose
