    Problem removing seat!

    Anyone having issues removing the seat? I have always had to struggle to remove it and now after a few days, I can't remove it at all!
    Is there a trick that I am missing? This can't be that hard- its always been easy removing seats till I met the FZ09!

    motorock, do you mean your key isn't releasing the seat? Might be something for the dealer to take care of.

    The key releases the lock. But after that I am not able to easily pull off the seat. I give up usually and let it be..but soon, have to add more electrical stuff to the battery plus would like to carry the disc lock under the seat!

    I just pull up on the back with my other hand when I use the key. Also, I removed the strap and made sure that the fasteners were lined up.

    I don't recall of another forum member reporting the problem. Can you tell where the seat won't come off?

    Thanks for your quick responses guys...didn't want my first posts to be about a problem! Will introduce myself officially soon!

    @V2Bob, the seat unlocks but seems to be stuck from the center towards the fuel tank..i can't seem to be able to lift it up the rear- almost feels like I may just break it!
    in the one week that I have had the bike, I have opened it about 4 times...all on the first day itself to fit a gorilla alarm.

    Try this........as you release the lock mechanism with the key, use your other hand to grab the very back of the seat and not only put some "lifting pressure" on the seat, but as you are lifting, pull the seat towards the rear of the bike. Sorry, that's the best I got!

    Like others have said...it's a backward motion rather than lifting up.

    I noticed that if you take off the 2 metal hooks on the seat sides, the seat is still just as firmly attached but goes on/off a lot easier. They don't even make contact when the seat is latched down. Those hooks would only make contact if someone was pulling up hard on the strap.

    I take mine off several times a day, I can't bring my phone into the building so I store it underneath the seat...definitely need to pull backwards and once it moves lift up. Good luck!
