I have heard about this happing but I have never had it happen in 5 years of using mine!
One thing though the seat only fits in properly in one way as the bolts are not the same distains apart & if the rouge way round will force the turn nut against the side this may have coursed it?

In the attached photo you can see that I mean!

I thought about that but I reckon it would only make the front ones rub.

Thanks guys for all your help top cookie
Nick I soon discovered the seat was tapered & only fit one way.
I had to glue 4 patches as all nuts damaged tubes then nuts damaged all patches.
IMO Aerotec 380 is great bit of kit.
But would you repair a manafacture fault when you spend 2K,

It looks like it's verging on a design fault to me but if it's not that common a problem it's probably manufacturing defect. I would be tempted to repair so I don't lose the use of my investment but I would definitely make use of the warranty before it ran out. OEM's only get to find out and do something about a design or tooling flaw if they are made aware there is a problem and it certainly isn't your responsibility to correct the problem. If your having to add patch after patch it isn't fit for purpose and you might find you are voiding the warranty by not giving them the opportunity to fix it (probably not but it's worth considering).

the rubber srake worked great on my 420 but as i say it went back to bombard so dont know how they bonded it
i want to now add it to both the 380`s its simple and effective

Yes Matt I agree design or manufacture falt.
It looks a fairly common problem when I search on here.
I will be going back to the Bombard dealer with warranty soon.


cheers Graham
