You normally modify the extension to fit the seat. I've seen it done lots of times on the 1100's. It used to be a popular modification, but not so much any more here in the States. It's as simple as welding it on, filling the seam with bondo and sanding. With the proper tools, it's a pretty simple thing to make the extension too.

Here's a couple of pictures of my buddy Jim's bike with an extension...





Andy's bike..



Tim just put on a Victory tank....



Hope that helps....
