Are the rubber bumpers underneath the seat still? My seat never had that kind of movement in it.

Yeah, my stock seat never moved like that either. I have an airbag vest tether running up from under the seat that would make that kind of play noticeable.

Are the bushings there where the bolts go in the back of the saddle? Are the bolts snug? I think there's a bit of taper in that tongue. If the saddle wasn't pushed forward sufficiently, it could leave some wiggle at the front.

Also entirely possible that the new 750 seats do wiggle.

I've dealt with that for the reason that Maxwellian gives, i.e. the 'tongue' wasn't pushed fully forward into the retaining bracket. If it continues to do that after being property seated, you could simply wrap some silicon self-sticking tape around the tongue to increase its thickness. I would imagine that would cure it.
