Glue your rubbers on...

...because if they fall off, bad things happen. It can get expensive. I prefer contact cement.

Just curious what bad things can happen?  I’ve removed a few of them on purpose on my rally seat to make it easier to fit.

It was a gag. A gafaww. A bit of double entendre humor. They are $7 a piece. Other than cut the seat cover from weight bearing on the the edges, nothing bad.

Turns out I had oversimplified my response above, in the interest of brevity. The rubber pads on the seat pan are there to take the load (not just your scrawny or my fat ass, it is DYNAMIC load!!!!) and transfer it to the FRAME, where it is designed to be born. The lead time on the missing rubbers was months, so the ride I did has cracked the plastic, piece missing. Anyone know the price on THAT piece? As for intentionally removing the rubbers... well, it's Sunday, I'm feeling extra kind, "REPENT!"

The plastic painted red/blue fairing is around 2oo bucks, give or take. I broke one... no bueno.  BAU-21731-00-P1
