I just installed my new Diopa solo seat from Kamna Ducati. The Vert. seat pad is attached by two snaps, and allows easy access to the under-seat storage . It only required minor adjustments to the mounting bracket for alignment purposes. I didn't like the screen material they sent for the vents, so I bought a very sturdy wire-mesh envelope holder from K-mart and made my own. I think I'll need to remove the tank pad for more....Rider clearance. Does anyone make a carbon fiber replacement for the stock tank pad? Is the stock tank pad attached by double sided tape only?

ooooooooo!!!!!!!

yippee!

I've been wanting to see more up close pictures of that tail...I've been putting off buying it for some time now.

I do have one question for you though.

How is the under tail room now?

Say when you remove your seat, and if you were to put the tail on a set of quick release bolts, or on hinges? Do you think that would be possible?

from what I know, the tank pad isn't something that you will want to remove. It's glued into place and there's a ridge under it.

There was a thread elsewhere in here about this very topic just a bit ago.

One solution is to get a different tank, they make some that are not only lighter, but hold more fuel as well.

JDuc;

There is actually more room under the seat now because I'm not limited by the bottom of the stock seat. You can access it via the opening behind the vert seat pad. In hind sight, I should have opened that hole up just a little more to reach in a little easier (it gets a little tight when reaching in up near my elbow). You would not be able to put the seat on a hinge because it wraps around the subframe on both sides and needs to be rolled in either direction to rotate it off, but the seat is held on by only 3 bolts... one on each side and one through the access opening.
