Check the gearbox output shaft for wear. Thats the one the front sprocket goes onto. It's only two little bolts to get the cover off, plus the gear shift lever. Otherwise it's a great great bike. Good luck!!
And dont worry about the seat - your arse will adapt in time.
I've got 2 AT's. One at 100,000 mls -the other at 50000. Great bikes.
