Broken seat tabs

Anybody broke the plastic seat tabs off their seat? The longer ones that hold the back of the seat and secure it to the frame? I broke mine at last weekends race, both of them clean off. I held the seat down with my legs/knees and finished the race.

I have a solution to fix the tabs with 1/4" allthread and some lock nuts. I'll post pics when I get to fixing it.

Just wondering if anyone else had broken theirs and the fix they came up with.

No...but I don't like how the seat latches. It should be a proper latch...

still cant figure out why Polaris had to f with the last latch system like on my 500 and go to the new system like your talking about, been wondering how long those plastic tabs would last, one of my few complaints about those new 570s

At least the seat doesn't just "pop" in like our 300! NO latches on that bad boy

Didn't know that, thanks, I'll take a look at it.

Is it plastic too?

I know this is an old thread, but has anyone installed the repair kit from Polaris and can let me know how it's holding up? Both of my seat pegs broke off and I'm trying to decide between the Polaris repair parts or the Dirtworks latch kit.

since we are talking about seats, just a heads up, if u remove your seat to hose bike down, when u put seat back on and the 2 seat posts and grommets are still wet the seat pops off way too easily, you could lose it if trailering right away ! I noticed this on the wife's 570. You can pop it off with your little finger.
