900 seat on vn750

I just picked up a 900 custom seat and am hoping to install today. The problem...I know the tab on the front has to be cut in order to fit. Does anyone out there have a picture of how they cut it. I don't want to destroy the seat playing with my sawsall lol.

I am also replying to show my interest in further information. A 900 seat may be in my future as well - If you do this install/mod, could you take some pics?

Cheers!

I would use a hand saw rather than a sawsall. That way you can take it easy when you're about to cut through.

FWIW, I did not cut the tab on mine. Yeah, there's a bit of a gap between the tank and the front seat as a result, but it's really not that big of a deal.
