When I put the seat down, the back of the seat rests against the lower brackets for the gas shocks So I thought the brackets had to be installed wrong, but it doesn't look like it. So I ended up just taking the shocks off for now, until a wise MC member informs me other wise... I'd prefer to have the shocks, as I'm sure that heavy seat will end slamming on someone's head at some point!
Can someone PLEASE respond to my query, or take a picture of your 95-97 with the observer seat up? I need to figure out if I have to fabricate some new brackets that will allow my seat to rest on the platform.

Thanks Brian. I figured they were on there backwards, I guess I will bend the brackets to fit on the backside. The observer seat was re-done before I owned it, they must have screwed it up.

PS, Your storage is a lot cleaner than mine... I could sleep in there!

And the term, "Safe-T-Top" is trademarked by MasterCraft.

Dangit, I thought I checked carefully, guess not! I stand corrected, and have corrected my sig too. Much better . . .

So does anyone know if all the old bruchures on the site did disappear, or am I just blind? I found the owner's manuals, but I always thought the old brochures were pretty cool to have access to.

Read page 4 of this thread for your answer (and no you are not blind).

According to the former TTAdmin, they should be still on the server and just require a little this and that to get them to show up. That's about all I know.
