Help with Seat Faring "moving"

My seat fairing is moving around, has a little gap ( at the end) actually before I even leave. When I'm on the move, I can see it vibrating a little. Does anyone know a way to get this to stay flush with the tail tip fairing and look good? The fairing has the padding inside of it, but doesnt seem to do anything. Thank you for your help .

Most likely it's not latched down on the rear latch ...mine does that if i don't get it latched down just right ... you have to play with it sometimes to get it to latch ...

Hers a picture to help out. I have the seat latched down. It seems like it needs a magnet or something to hold it down.

I just took my seat off, it will not latch by pushing, hit it with the side of your hand just slightly.

Mine does the same thing sometimes when it's not latched all the way. I just sit on the seat and bounce once or twice unitl I hear the latch fully engage.

Funny this has come up.. I fixed two of them yesterday.

1. On my friend's 14 I removed the back latch bracket from the seat and put a slight bend just forward of the bolt hole then bent it back a little at the angle bend it already had to get it straight again. The net result is the rectangular hole that the latch catches is sitting lower and can catch the latch rod easier.

2. On my 14 I decided to try something slightly different since mine would catch slightly easier than his did and needed less "fix". On mine I used a jewelers file to ever so slightly file the bottom edge of the rectangular hole that the latch rod catches larger.. the net result again is to move the hole down a little to make it easier for the latch to catch.

Both fixes worked!
