What to do about a new seat ? Not the top cover it's fine. The bottom (plastic) part of the seat. It has many cracks. It's crushing the air filter box.
Any thoughts?

Get a new one before it does damage to something else? Lose some weight? It's plastic it will wear out from use and fatigue.

$300 for the pan. Too expensive. It was cracked in several places when I bought it. Any one have a used one for sale ?

Lose some weight fatty.

Rivet a piece of sheet metal to the bottom to hold it together?

Rookie, you will have a tough time finding a used one even on ebay that isn't close to the cost of new. The 800 seat bottom sits up high on plastic "feet" for lack of a better term. With age and your weight bouncing down they walk off the side of the frame rails and crack the pan. If you search, there is a fix with small angle pieces on the frame rails to stop this and keep you from messing up the air box, throttle body and plastics. You may be able to repair the old seat pan and fix the rails and get by but even if you get a new seat it will be in the same shape quickly unless you add the rail pieces.
Partzilla is about the best for new at around $217.

Boy, you guys are pretty cold. Rookie gets on here with a legitimate problem looking for a fix and and most of what he gets is smart remarks and advice that he needs to loose the beer gut....Hell, if we wanted to loose weight we'd be hiking, sweating and eating granola bars instead of riding through the woods on a plush IRS Polaris machine sporting cool sun shades with a cooler full of icy beverages on the back.
