how sturdy is the passenger seat/tiedown straps underneath?

moreso how sturdy is the locking mechanism? I'm strapping a tent, bag and sleeping bag to the tiedown straps and never really noticed how loosely the passanger seatpad fits. should I be strapping around the whole tail section haha?

Pull off your passenger seat and take a close look at the underside and how it attaches. Then, you can decide; however, were I "hauling" much I'd be getting the mounts made for that purpose, either Yamaha's or aftermarket. Just my nickel's worth... All the best!

wow you guys a litterally zero help hah. I have looked at it. but now would be a wise time to mention " no it seems safe but a lot of people have issues with it coming off!" or " havnt had any reports of the seat coming off yet" obviously I can see how it connects but who knows, I've only owned the bike for a short time

I often use the stock tie downs for my gym bag. It works great for that. I do not think I would trust it for anything much heavier, but I might be a bit overly pessimistic.

The seat is tight and is not going anywhere. If you decide to add something else on it and strap it with bungee cords to the frame, it has even less chances to fly away.
