Tim, With the tray removed, the back feet of my seat pan are not resting on the frame rail at all. The square white plastic part of the pan beside the catch touches down first. It has a formed plastic locating pin inside it.
I had thought about grinding that down until the back feet touched the frame, but have not gone there yet. Didnt want to do that until a last resort, but you are right in that it will tilt the seat back more.
Your comment about the bikes spirit aligns with many conversations ive had with myself. I understand the FJR and all sport tourers are compromise bikes by their very nature and do not lean heavily in either direction. With our preference for either end of the spectrum, all we can do is try to make it fit us, and all our quirky body parts, and I think its fun to do so. Ive had to adjust every bike ive ever had (save my old kawasaki klx250), so evidently i am abnormal. Wife will chime in here undoubtedly !
AND - No two butts are ever the same - sounds like something beavis and butthead would say !
Roddy, ill have to zoom your pic and take a good look at your seat _ ill get back to you asap.
