A10 plunger dual seat
« on: 22.06. 2017 00:42 »
Hi all, has anybody got a plunger dual seat bracket (67-9089) they can send me the measurements of.

I can make one in about 20 minutes if I know the exact sizes cos I am not paying 35 quid for one and thats for sure

Come to think about it the measurements for the rear ones would be useful as well if anybody has them but at least if I can make the front one from measurements I can work out the back ones for myself

Many thanks in advance

I have an unused Plunger seat. I'll get you the details you want but I'm away from home at the moment. Probably one day next week.

I don't know whether the one I have on mine is original size but the base is plastic so I don't think it would be. Also its a pain in the A..SE to remove due to front bracket being bolted on under the tank , I had to remove tank first to get to front bolt . If I was you I would have a measure up and Lookey see if you could make a bracket that fits to the same fixing bolt for back of tank. That's my plan for next time it has to come off but for now I made it slotted so I can slide front bracket over bolt then tighten back bracket up  *smiley4*

The dual seat that was on my plunger A7 when I got it (1 owner, 10,000 miles on the clock) had a plywood base and may well have been original. Not uncommon in these far off days. It got the heave and was replaced by a single saddle.

I've just dragged my old seat out and taken pictures.

I don't know if it's obvious but the rear brackets are swayed outwards to fit the mudguard width.

More.
Just realised you are only interested in the front bracket; Sorry!

If you need the bracket to copy from I'm willing to send it to you, (assuming I can undo the screws!) but I think I'd better have it back; someone may want to fit the dual seat one day.

I see that Draganfly have a replacement bracket for £33. https://www.draganfly.co.uk/index.php/accessories-a-misc/product/14816-
Their bracket doesn't look as strong as the original which I hope you can see has strengthening ribs.

Thanks all but Greybeard you are a gentleman and a scholar  *smile*

I may take you up on the offer of borrowing it for copy purpose but something tells me you are local to me anyway?

I am from Ascot and I seem to half remember for some reason that you might be Uxbridge way?

I may have invented that of course I am getting to that age.......................... *conf*

Why on earth did I think you were this way when your profile clearly tells me differently?

I did tell you I was getting old  *smile*

If you would not mind trying to unbolt it for me I would appreciate it but please dont break your back doing it or of course wreck anything
