i bought a strap on ventura bag for my zzr250. it has a separate base which straps around the seat, and then the bag is clipped onto it. I was trying to fit the base today, and I couldn't get it quite right. Strapping it around the seat as shown in the instructions, the straps were getting in the way of the seat lock, it would not lock down properly. And then when I managed to get it down, it wouldn't unlock. bent my key trying to open it but eventually got it. So then I tried crossing the straps. That kept them out of the way of the lock, but the base wouldn't stay put, didn't take much force to pull it off. that doesn't happen when the straps are straight, but i just couldn't position them so they didn't get in the way of the lock. Anybody had a problem with this? were u able to get around it? Be very easy to just plonk it on & jam the lock, but my wet weather pants live under the seat, and i often use the helmet lock. thanks!
