Do you have a link for that. Just signed up to facebook for this but have no clue how to navigate that site.

This could be the chap. Scroll down the post to find Jamie Ryhs Lomas and send him a message.

A friend of mine has just volunteered his lad to do any 3d printing I may require so I've sent him a copy of the above and also a modified one to see if he can do that and if my new superior super secret design actually works in practice.

Yeah, that's the guy. Got one and fitted it,  but then the front of the seat rubs on the tank so I took it off. Now I have fitted footpeg lowering blocks and the seat feels much better.

For future reference, If one is worried about the tank being scratched by the seat being lifted or as in my case fitting a seat cover, 3M VentureShield Paintwork Protection Film is very unobtrusive, quite substantial and super sticky. Time will tell if it remains as such but for a few quid worth the investment. I bought the 70mm wide (to do my car bumper at the boot opening too) but 50mm will be more than enough for the tank /seat juncture.  :028:
