I purchased a used STX-450 Quad on a retirement auction a few years back. I'm happy enough with the original seat but it has a squeak as it moves around horizontally. To me it sounds like plastic on plastic and is very irritating. If I brace my feet against the foot pegs to prevent horizontal movement, the squeaking stops.
Any bright ideas on how to stop these squeaks? I suppose the entire seat could be removed and disassembled to see where the rubbing points might be. Obviously it would be more desirable to fix it without removing.
Don't know what the cause is but if it is the red seat like our magnum there is a lever of the front to lock our horizontal movement. Might stop the squeak but loose some shock absorption.
