also remember that the fit will be a little different when you have the tail section off the bike vs mounted to subframe.... It's common with these volume produced fiberglass tails that there's shrinkage... that's from having no quality control.... I don't kow how much is the sellers fault though...

Get out the heat gun and start working it a little.

i have to agree with the heat gun idea. i got one off ebay and it fit like yours at first. i used some spring nuts and black #8 screws to hold it together, then heated it until there was no gaps around the seam. the next day, i took it apart, and it stayed where it belonged. hope it helps
