Loose Seat - Street 500

Hi there,

I just purchased a used 2015 street 500 and after taking the bike home I noticed the seat was loose so I decided to take it off and have a look. I found out that the square shaped hole under the seat that connects to the metal tongue is completely broken off on the bottom edge where the tongue normally hooks onto.

I didn’t notice this while riding, but now that I’ve seen it I can pull the seat up completely from the front with the strap and screw being the only thing holding it down. I’m a new rider and wanted to ask if this can pose a safety risk or if it’s not a big deal.

Thanks.
