If your talking about the loose stretch on the seat cover, yes mine came from the factory a tad loose for my taste, (extremely loose compared to my brothers rm). I think it may have to do with the material used, as its has a pretty big amount of stretch to it.

I replaced it with a fx seat cover and its a lot tighter and doesn't move at all but now i have those dang wrinkles on the small half circle piece of extra grip they put near the knees.:smirk: But ill live.

A friend's seat was a tad looser than his other Yamahas. Just on the side near the base. He pulled it over the edge and restapled it. Problem solved.

Mine appears a little loose as well, mainly on the sides where is comes in to contact with the tank. It still looks great though and hasn't bothered me at all. I certainly don't feel it while riding the bike.
