I am only using the front blocks. Rules were made to be broken. Seat sits flatter that way. Doesn't affect stability.

Got my new Mostro second hand - only just ( 950miles ) but obviously these bits were missing/lost

(Jeez who buys a bike this fun and this easy to ride and only does 950 miles in a year)

Thanks for the pointer Hyperspd and thanks for the higher resolution Bono

As long as you feel comfortable and the seat does not move, i think it should be OK.
Myself never thought about that...... maybe i will try whithout the back blocks just to see how it feel ...... got to wait another 5 months though. Jejejejeje

Ditto. Stops you sliding into the tank.

Understood
What about the seat adjuster though ? Do you have to put that in the low or leave it at the higher position ?

Thanks Deano.

Next question : do you still have to remove the 2 plastic side panels on the left and right under the seat ?

Basically, lowered the seat the other day and...it suits me fine since i'm 1.75-1.76 cm, but, while i do like the lower position, A) i keep sliding towards the tank B) it's a ball-ache trying to latch the seat now (since the height adjuster seats lower and alignment of the seat to the adjuster is harder) and C) front of the seat now rubs the tank (and since the paint ain't so good...)

Just trying to find a comfy and more practical solution
Cheers

Ditto. It still clicks in to lock just fine as well.

Damn dude that's tiny. I mean it's huge in Japan but I'm hoping you meant M and not cm.
