Seat Thumbscrews & Hazel Tuck Seat

Just ordered a new seat and thumbscrews from Steady Garage!

The thumbscrews alone should be convenient to access without using that hex key on the side.

$10 is steep but should fit nice and tight for the Rebel.

Neat solution. My MT-07 has the same fitting method. Like it also has the indicator and horn switches reversed. As with the gear lever changing sides long ago, I guess we have to get used to such 'innovations'.

I have them on mine, much more convenient then the allen key. Worth the steep price.

Yea, I think being a new rider, it was trivial. The reversal of the horn and signals didn't trip me up (no prior setup to get used to, lol).

I'm curious as to how the seat and its particular color (hazelnut) will actually look in my possession. I would be interested in staining it with leather/vinyl coloring if it needs more depth in color.

I will post once I get it screwed in.
