Question Squeaky F4 Seat

I've ridden the SPR a few times now and noticed you can move the tail section from
side to side very easy. It also squeaks when ever someone is on the seat and moves around.
Common? Fixes?

I think your tail section and seat should not move around. Check all fasteners?

So if you stand behind the bike, put your hands on either side of the tail section, and
try to move it side to side, it shouldn't move?

It'll move but not much. Check by the latch (under the seat) and make sure both the rubber grommets are there. And if it's squeaking find out where it's coming from.

Are you sure it is the seat squeaking and not your ass? I've heard you could be a bit flatulent...

Make sure both pins and the spring is on the front mount of the seat also.

Right. It shouldn't move from side to side. There is some flex in the plastic of course, but it should not move from side to side.
