I don't have an extra seat, but here's an idea to help keep your next one:

Home Depot sells a package of mini bungy cords like these below for $2 or $3.

How about using one of these to keep downward pressure on the seat or cowl?

Permanently attach one end of the bungee somewhere inside the storage compartment, maybe with a zip tie, so it stays put. Attach the other end to the bottom of the seat or cowl. I can't remember if there's anything on the bottom of the cowl to hook to, so you might have to improvise a hook point or drill a hole. Adjust the bungee length so you have to stretch it when attaching it, so the bungee provides constant downward pressure. Even if the cowl comes unlocked and pops up, it should spring right back down. Might not pop back down perfectly locked back in place, but should be better than it flying away altogether.

lol I was thinking of a teather, small screw drilled into the underside of the seat with a cord hooked to the rear frame with a quick release... So yeah, same as above just classier...

Sorry for you loss man that would drive me nuts!

Has just realized that I don't care what it costs until I get the bill! :roll eyes: ...
