Yes, that''s an easy one, remove the hooks from the rear part of the seat and add either a flat plastic or aluminum or couple washers between the seat and the hook of about one millimeter thickness, that would do the job.

Or you could just straighten (bend to a more perpendicular position) out the formed metal wire that the hooks engage. It's what I did and it fixed the same problem for me.

Or slightly grind with a small Dremel rubber "drum" with their 120 grit cover at the contact point of the saddle hooks to where they engage the sub-frame "loops"; and then optionally touch up the hooks with a abrasion resistant coating (paint).

+1 .. He is right. Every time you hit the gas, you weight shifts the saddle to the rear, bending rearward the wire loops sticking up from the frame. Just beat them back forward to a vertical position.
